Farhan Akhtar makes his MCU debut in ‘Ms. Marvel’s’ fourth episode. The director claimed Iman Vellani’s excitement is palpable. She plays Kamala Khan and Ms. Marvel. Farhan plays Waleed, the Red Daggers’ leader. Waleed helps Kamala Khan discover her superpowers and identity as she visits her grandmother in Karachi.
Farhan enjoyed working on the Marvel set. “Exhilarating! Fantastic setting and characters. Waleed felt a big duty and an exciting chance as a member of the Order of Protectors of the Red Daggers.” He prepared for the role by surrendering to the directors’ vision. “I loved working with director Sharmeen and action guy Garry. We spent days in the studio learning and practising choreography. All the hard labour was done before we got to the sets “continued
Farhan told fellow debutant Vellani: “She’s a great person. She’s Ms. Marvel’s driving force.” “As soon as I met them in Thailand, where we worked together, it felt like the beginning of her career, as she was so skilled at her craft and committed to her job. She was as excited as on day one. She’s a talent to watch.”
In Ms. Marvel, Pakistani-Canadian rookie Iman Vellani plays a Muslim teen who discovers she has superpowers and a family history dating back to 1947.
