Opening up about his decision to play his uncle Syed, he previously said: "People see First generation migrants and often assume that they have a barrier to their ability to communicate with society due to English sometimes being their second language.

"I really want to take this opportunity to portray a character like that, and completely break them free of any assumptions that people might make about him. I want to show that that generation can have a real laugh too and see how people react."

Is Syed a real person?

While Syed is a Catfish in The Circle, he is based on Hashu's real-life uncle.
