Afzal: (Lead) Pakistani / Muslim; now widowed, he is Zarina's gregarious, larger-than-life father, the successful owner of a taxi company in Atlanta; conservative, opinionated, often stubborn, but always with his daughters' best interests at heart, he is a well-meaning, but manipulative man who had, at one point, not allowed his daughter to marry outside their faith; goes behind her back in an effort to find her a suitable husband, and involves himself in their courtship and marriag; later, he feels betrayed, horrified and disgusted when he happens upon his daughter's unpublished manuscript; a humorous man, he is as quick to laugh as he is to judge.
