Indian-American actor Aziz Ansari is the main character and creator of the Netflix series Master of None. Also known for his role in the popular NBC sitcom Parks and Recreation, the 37-year-old actor has won two Emmys and a Golden Globe. He is the first Asian American actor to win a Golden Globe for acting on television.
Aziz Ansari is not putting brakes on his relatively prospering career, so we would have plenty to talk about his professional life. In the meantime, let’s have a look at his personal side of things. Aziz was born to mother Fatima Ansari and father Shoukath Ansari. Well, his parents have definitely been in the spotlight after starring in Master Of None, but did you know Aziz also has a brother?
So, Why don’t we take a deeper look at Aziz Ansari’s brother Aniz Ansari aka Aniz Adam Ansari?
Who Is Aziz Ansari’s Brother Aniz Ansari?
Aniz Ansari is the only brother of talented actor Aziz Ansari. The seven-year-old younger sibling grew up very close to Aziz in a rural community of South Carolina. The two brothers were always a fan of the TV, and they would always make jokes and stuff out of it to amuse themself. Unlike Aziz, who is pretty active on social media, Aniz remains pretty low key and does not seem to have a social media account.
Despite a considerable age gap, Aziz and Aniz ended up being pretty close to each other, and they are still each other’s best friends. The two can be seen casually spending quite a lot of time together.
Aniz Is A Screenwriter
As we mentioned earlier, the two Ansari brothers were a big fan of television from a very young age. This developed a deeper interest for them to pursue a career in it. While Aziz chose to do it through acting, Aniz has chosen to be part of the TV industry through his writing. The 30-year-old has been part of multiple projects, including his brother’s show Master Of None and the much recent addition Forever.
Aniz was also featured in Forever in the role of a character named Aaron, which he portrayed pretty eloquently. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Aniz mentioned that he was working on other projects as well, but he could not reveal their names. Let’s hope we get to see more of his amazing work in the coming days.
