Bollywood actor-filmmaker Farhan Akhtar has joined the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The first look for Akhtar’s character in the new “Ms Marvel” web series was unveiled on social media on Wednesday.
A new teaser for the series featuring Farhan Akhtar shows the actor dressed in a dressing gown and sporting slightly longer hair and a full beard.
His character is seen imparting wisdom to Iman Vellani’s Kamala Khan. He tells her, “What you seek seeks you”, which echoes in the next scene.
The video also features The Weeknd’s song “Blinding Lights,” and the teen superhero engages in fight sequences and dances in ethnic outfits.
A day earlier, Farhan had expressed his gratitude to the show’s creators for bringing him on board.
“This post is in thanks to the creators, directors, and everyone in front and behind the camera, who have worked together to make Ms. Marvel what she is. This is in thanks to Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy for her guidance throughout throughout my days working on it. It’s an appreciation of Marvel. I’m proud to be a part of their conscious inclusiveness. This show is a celebration of diversity and it’s sure to bring joy and pride of identity to millions of young girls and boys across the subcontinent,” Farhan wrote on Twitter.
