Farhan Akhtar to appear in ‘Ms Marvel’

Actor-filmmaker Farhan Akhtar will be making an appearance in “Ms Marvel”, the first Muslim superhero series from Marvel Studios. According to Deadline, the details of his character have been kept under wraps, even though it is said to be a guest appearance.

The Disney+ show will be the first Hollywood project for Akhtar, who is known for starring in hits like ‘Rock On!’, ‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara’, ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’ and ‘Dil Dhadakne Do’.

‘Ms Marvel’, which comes from the blockbuster Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), is fronted by newcomer Iman Vellani as Kamala Khan aka Ms Marvel, a Muslim American teenager growing up in Jersey City.

Kamala is a teenage Pakistani-American from Jersey City, New Jersey. She took up the title of Ms Marvel after Carol Danvers, her idol, became Captain Marvel. The Kamala Khan iteration of Ms Marvel is a relative newcomer in the world. The character debuted in a 2015 comic series by G Willow Wilson (writer) and Adrian Alphona (artist). She was the first Muslim Marvel superhero to have her own comic series.

Created by Bisha K Ali, the series also stars Matt Lintz, Yasmeen Fletcher, Zenobia Shroff, Mohan Kapur, Saagar Shaikh, Rish Shah, Laurel Marsden, Adaku Ononogbo, Laith Nakli, Travina Springer, and Aramis Knight.

‘Ms Marvel’ will premiere on June 8 on streaming service Disney+ Hotstar, where it will be available in English, Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, and Malayalam languages.
