Mirza did his primary schooling from St. Jude's School in North Nazimabad Town, Karachi. He did his intermediate from Commecs College. When he progressed towards secondary school, he enrolled for drama classes as a hobby; it was not until he went on to do his graduation that he realised his passion for acting.
Mirza started off as a theatre actor in 1999. He was doing Bachelors in Commerce and ran out of funds for the next semester which made him and his friends start a theatre company of their own called Dramaybazz.

Mirza is the first Pakistani actor to be awarded at the festival. He is currently producing a pictorial book titled Silent Cinema, with which he wishes to revive Pakistan's film industry. He stated that the title symbolises how the Pakistani cinema is silent and that it needs to show its true potential. The film will star Mirza, with Sanam Baloch, Juggan Kazim, and Sunita Marshall.
