After Bollywood star Farhan Akhtar, Pakistani superstar Fawad Khan made his big Hollywood debut with the Marvel series Ms Marvel. Reports had claimed that Fawad will be seen playing Kamala's grandfather in the series, and episode 5 of the show did not disappoint. After the episode was released on Disney+ Hotstar, the actor began trending on Twitter and fans couldn't keep calm after watching his performance.
The actor was seen in episode 5 of Ms Marvel playing the character Hasan. Kamala in an earlier episode was transported back to 1947 with the help of her powerful bangles. The new episode explored India and Pakistan's history of partition and how Kamala's great grandmother went missing, and how her grandmother witnessed the power as a child. Hasan who spent little time on-screen during the pre-partition scenes ended up becoming a major hook point in Kamala Khan's life story.
Many Indian fans also celebrated Fawad's return to the screen. One tweet read, "#FawadKhan with his dreamy eyes again on screens after years 😍😍😍 #MsMarvel". Another read, "So.. seeing Fawad Khan on screen(personally) in Ms Marvel after a long time was a delightful treat to the eyes & for heart as well. I wish he had more screen time or to appear in more episodes. He is one of those rare actors who acts with his eyes more. ❤️❤️ #FawadKhan #MsMarvel"
