Bollywood ‘Badshah’ Shah Rukh Khan has a massive international fan following, even in the Marvel universe. Many of us are enjoying the new Disney Plus series ‘Ms Marvel’, which, much to our delight, is peppered with desi references.
In the second episode of the series, ‘Ms Marvel’ aka Kamala Khan is seen sitting in a car with a group of her friends. She asks her high school crush Kamran if he, like her, is into Bollywood movies. The boy responds in the affirmative and says he does watch Bollywood movies but only those starring the greats of Hindi cinema, like Shah Rukh Khan.
‘Ms Marvel’ creators had earlier expressed their desire to work with SRK. Writer Sana Amanat had said, “If Shah Rukh Khan wants to be in this show, we will go film again!” It is obvious that the actor’s charms have crossed the seven seas. SRK is yet to comment on all the compliments he’s been getting from the show team.
Starring Iman Vellani in the lead role, ‘Ms Marvel’ is currently streaming on Disney Plus Hotstar.
