Ms. Marvel, the latest show by the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) has been getting a lot of attention recently. The 7th show in the slew of live-action shows created by the Marvel Studios after WandaVision, Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Loki, Hawkeye and more, the show features the first Muslim superhero of the universe.

The show is about Kamala Khan, a 16-year-old Pakistani-American girl living in Jersey City. Kamala has been a big superhero fan for a long time, following the various Marvel characters that exist in that universe, her idol being Captain Marvel.

However, she gains superhero abilities from a magical bangle and is then able to harness cosmic energy, change shape and size of things and do various other things. With this, she is suddenly thrust into a world of superpowered beings who have to protect the world from evil forces.

Currently, 4 episodes are out of the show and it was the latest one that created quite a stir amongst Desi fans when they saw who had a cameo appearance in it.

Farhan Akhtar’s Marvel Role

In the fourth episode of Ms. Marvel, we saw Bollywood actor and director Farhan Akhtar make his Marvel debut. He played the character of Waleed, leader of a vigilante group the Red Daggers and he helps Kamala from the attacking Clandestines that are led by Najma.

But, amongst all this, Farhan’s role in the show is becoming the cause of a lot of memes. One being the extremely short length of his role, he apparently gets killed in the same episode itself.

Another was that the actor’s name was misspelled in the YouTube clip featuring him.

All this led to Indians getting a good laugh out of this more than anything.

Even if it was extremely brief, it was still nice to see Akhtar as an interesting character in the MCU. And who knows, given we are in the multiverse now, there might be another version of him that could make a return someday?
