It looks like one more actor was revealed to be joining the production, as in an interview with Film Inquiry, A Mighty Heart star, Alyy Khan, revealed he is joining a Marvel production.
A couple of interesting things. I’m hoping to be traveling to do the Marvel gig soon. Other than that The Serpent is still on air, so do try and watch and enjoy that.
He later goes on to confirm that it is indeed Ms. Marvel and even talks briefly about the quarantine before he can join the production.
Yes, it should be fun. [chuckles] I was keen to be a part of that, so let’s see what happens. Travelling to Thailand and big quarantine periods, the world is still a bit of a mess right now but fingers crossed we can move around soon
The Pakistani actor has quite an extensive filmography that includes productions with Hollywood, Bollywood, and Lollywood. He has recently appeared in Bassam Tariq‘s Mogul Mowgli alongside Riz Ahmed.
