Marvel Studio’s upcoming series Ms. Marvel is going to be Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy’s first live action work of fiction and will mark the debut of Nimra Bucha, Samina Ahmed, Mehwish Hayat, Fawad Khan amongst others in Hollywood. While Sharmeen’s presence behind the camera must be a source of comfort to Pakistani actors, Bollywood actor Farhan Akhtar also admitted on Twitter that she guided him throughout the Ms. Marvel journey.

Farhan, who wasn’t seen during the Los Angeles premiere of the series, has already confirmed that he has a cameo in Ms. Marvel. The actor took to Twitter on Tuesday and shared the poster of Ms. Marvel along with a note. He thanked the creators, directors and team of the series. He specially mentioned Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy and thanked her for the guidance.

“It is in appreciation of Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy for her guidance through my days of working on it,” he wrote.

Farhan also expressed gratitude to Marvel. “I’m proud to be part of their conscious inclusiveness. This show is a celebration of diversity and it certainly will bring joy and pride of self-identity to millions of young girls and boys of the sub-continent,” he added.
