Confirmed! Farhan Akhtar is a part of MCU’s upcoming mini-series ‘Ms. Marvel’

After months of rumors and speculations, Bollywood actor Farhan Akhtar’s presence in the upcoming web series ‘Ms. Marvel’ has been confirmed. However, the confirmation didn’t come through any official announcement, but in the form of an appreciation post from Farhan’s wife Shibani Dandekar. On Saturday, Shibani shared a news report on her Instagram, which claimed to have confirmed Farhan’s role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe mini-series. Farhan himself later shared the story on Twitter, saying that he had ‘a lot of fun’, the show also stars Pakistani actor Fawad Khan.

‘Ms. Marvel’ is part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and is based on Marvel’s first teen Muslim superhero Kamala Khan, who is an Avengers fan and later struggles with her life as a superhero when she learns about her superpowers. The show’s trailer was released in March and several fans were disappointed by the absence of Farhan or Fawad in it.

On Friday, news portal Deadline reported that Farhan has been described as a ‘guest-starring role’ in ‘Ms. Marvel’. The details about his character have been kept hidden for now. Although the report did not include any comment from Farhan or the production, the news was confirmed when Shibani shared a screengrab of it on her Instagram.

Later, Farhan himself confirmed the development by sharing the same story on his social media. “Grateful that the universe gifts these opportunities to grow, learn and in this case have a ton of fun while doing it,” he tweeted.

Notably, rumors of Farhan being a part of the show have been doing the rounds for quite some time. In a conversation with news outlet Eastern Eye late last year, Farhan was seen avoiding this question. When asked to confirm or deny the rumours, he said, “Okay, I have read that too, that’s all I can say.”
On the other hand, Fawad Khan is also in a small role in the series. Fawad had confirmed on his part that he is coming on the show. In an interview with an entertainment website in December, Fawad was asked if he was a part of Ms. Marvel, to which he replied, “Yes I am. I can’t deny that, now I can’t lie, that’s why they themselves have put the news.” Talking about the experience of working in the show, he said, “It was a wonderful experience, it was great fun. The actors I worked with, the people I worked with were a lot of fun, but I’m sorry, I can’t say much more at the moment.

When is ‘Ms. Marvel’ releasing?

‘Ms. Marvel’ will be streamed from June 8 on Disney+ worldwide and on Disney+ Hotstar in India. Iman Vellani is playing the role of Kamala Khan/Ms. Marvel in the show. The cast also includes Aramis Knight, Matt Lintz, Sagar Sheikh, Rish Shah, Zenobia Shroff, Mohan Kapoor, Yasmin Fletcher, Laith Naki, Azhar Usman, Travina Springer, and Nimra Buka.
