After several delays, Mrs. Marvel is closer to the Disney + premiere in June, which means that marketing has increased in recent weeks. The upcoming MCU series will feature a brand new character played by newcomer Iman Vellani and will revolve around Kamala Khan’s transition to the eponymous superhero.

Mrs. Marvel is preparing to introduce the first Pakistani-American hero of the MCU, thus pushing for more representation in the franchise. This move is also entrenched in the growing cast of the series, as more stars from Pakistan and India have joined the project.


The Indo-American actress Anjali Bhimani (Runaways) reportedly joined Ms. Marvel’s cast in a recurring role, while Pakistani film and television actress Mehwish Hayat was also confirmed to be part of the cast.

Now, a Bollywood talent has been reported to have joined Mrs. Marvel.

Mrs. Marvel adds another Bollywood talent


Deadline shared that Farhan Akhtar is part of the Marvel Studios cast Mrs. Marvel. The role of Akhtar is still hidden, but the newspaper reported that the role of the actor is as a guest-star.


Akhtar has an impressive Bollywood biography, with him being known for films such as Dil Chahta HaI, Rock it !!, Zindagi Na Milegi Dobaraand The sky is pink. The actor also has a multi-year partnership with Netflix through his Excel Entertainment and Mumbai-based Ritesh Sidhawin.

Akhtar is part of a stellar ensemble, which includes Mehwish Hayat, Anjali Bhimani, Aramis Knight, Saagar Shaikh, Rish Shah, Zenobia Shroff and the protagonist Iman Vellani.

The stellar cast of Ms. Marvel is growing

The inclusion of Farhan Akhtar in Mrs. Marvel is important, mainly because of the incredible career of the actor in Bollywood. That said, Akhtar is likely to play a key role in the Disney + series, given his star power in the Bollywood world.


Given the actor’s ability as a guest role, the possibility of seeing Akhtar play one of the villains in the series, rumored to be ClanDestine, could be ruled out due to the fact that these enemies are expected to play a major role in the series. .

However, it is possible that Akhtar is impersonating one of Kamala’s neighbors in the series or a notable member of the community. Akhtar can even play a role as a high school teacher in Kamala or even as a member of a long-lost family.

Either way, everything will be revealed when Mrs. Marvel premieres at Disney + on June 8th.
