He has been acting since 1982, making his debut in Nepokornaya, also known as The Unconquered, produced by Uzbekfilm Studio in the former Soviet Union. He is perhaps best known in the region for his performances in Scorched by Kandahar (1989), Klyatva Dzhantaya (1984) and Zolotaya golova mstitelya (1988). In 2011, Mirkhadiyev had a supporting role in Vysotsky: Thank God I’m Alive about famed Russian poet, singer and actor Vladimir Vysotsky. The film won several national awards. On Fortitude, the cast and crew worked in exhausting 50-degree heat, but earned Mirkhadiyev the Best Actor Award at the 14th Eurasia International Film Festival.
