Bollywood actor and filmmaker Farhan Akhtar made his Marvel Cinematic Universe debut with the fourth episode of ‘Ms Marvel’. He praised actress Iman Vellani, who essays the titular role of Kamala Khan and Ms Marvel in the series, and said that her energy is very infectious.
“She is an absolutely wonderful person and that’s the most important thing. Her energy is infectious and is the driving force when it comes to the cast of Ms. Marvel,” Akhtar said.
The Bollywood actor essays the role of Waleed, the leader of the ancient order known as the Red Daggers. Waleed, who acts as a mentor to Kamala Khan when she lands in Karachi to meet her maternal grandmother, helps answer and uncover the mystery behind her superpowers and her true identity.
“She was as excited as she probably would have been on day one. She is someone to look out for, she is incredibly gifted and incredibly talented,” Akhtar said.
Fronted by Pakistani-Canadian debutant Vellani as Kamala Khan, ‘Ms Marvel’ is a coming-of-age story of a Muslim teenager who discovers that she has superpowers and that her family history goes back to the India-Pakistan Partition in 1947.
