Ms. Marvel gets Fawad Khan but where does that leave us? Disney+ just roped in our national treasure!
Fawad Khan, the nation’s heart throb who has already given us four international projects including Khoobsurat, which was his debut Bollywood film with Sonam Kapoor. He also stared in Kapoor and Sons and Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. Back in Pakistan he has given us some iconic hits including Humsafar staring Mahira Khan and Zindagi Gulzar Hai in which he co-starred with Sanam Saeed. Now he is all set to appear in Disney+ new show, Ms Marvel and we are head over heels in love!
Ms. Marvel which is set to release in late 2021 is the story about Kamala Khan (Iman Vellani), a Pakistani-American teen based in New Jersey. She will be the first onscreen Muslim hero of Marvel Studios. The recipient of two Academy Awards, Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy will be one of the directors along with Meera Menon, Adil El Arbi, and Bilall Fallah. In addition to this, Alyy Khan will be making an appearance along Fawad Khan in episode one according to IMBD.
As the ongoing rumors broke on social media, the news was confirmed when BBC Entertainment journalist Haroon Rashid took it to twitter:
And look who else will be part of the ensemble cast!
As we eagerly wait in impatient anticipation to see our heart throb back on screen, here are some twitter reactions to enjoy!
It certainly is huge!
Fans are certainly thrilled!
We do only wish him the best!
He assuredly is amazing and we expect nothing less!
So will we – After all it’s for Fawad Khan!
Can you guess the character?
In a recent interview with Anupama Chopra from Film Companion, he confirmed the news upon getting asked if he was a part of Ms. Marvel. He said, “Yeah, I am. Woh toh main deny nahi kar sakta, ab toh main jhooth nahi bol sakta, woh toh unhone khud news laga di hai” (source: Express Tribune). Mehwish Hayat is also a name reportedly involved in the project.
Fans would be delighted to know that according to a Twitter account that tweets updates about Ms Marvel, Fawad Khan and Mehwish Hayat might be playing Kamala’s great grandparents in the mini-series. The Twitter account also speculates that it would most likely be a flashback scene.
“In the comics her great grandparents only appear in four pages about the partition of India and Pakistan, so it’s likely this scene will be about that, though we can’t confirm yet,” the tweet said.
We are super proud of Fawad Khan who pulls a trick out of his ‘amazing’ hat to leave his fans clean bowled! We are super excited to see Fawad Khan and Mehwish Hayat light up our television screens together!
