For the unversed, last month it was being reported that Farhan Akhtar was shooting in Bangkok for a Marvel project, leading to speculations that Farhan will be seen alongside Iman Vellani in Ms Marvel. The show reportedly will also star Adil El Arbi, Bilall Fallah, Oscar-winner Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy and Meera Menon in pivotal roles.
The recurring cast for the show includes Rish Shah, Saagar Shaikh, Matt Lintz, Aramis Knight, Zenobia Shroff, Yasmeen Fletcher, Laith Naki, Azher Usman, Travina Springer, Nimra Buch, and Mohan Kapur.
Notably, Ms Marvel first appeared in the comics in 2012 as the first Muslim superhero. She becomes a superhero after gaining shape-shifting abilities due to her inhuman lineage, after the exposure to Terrigen Mist. Reportedly, Iman Vellani will be making an appearance in Captain Marvel 2, starring Brie Larson.
Ms Marvel will arrive on Disney+ Hotstar in late 2021.
