Bollywood actor-filmmaker Farhan Akhtar will be part of the cast of Disney Plus' upcoming series 'Ms. Marvel'.
According to 'Deadline', details regarding the character are under wraps, though his participation has been couched as a guest-starring role.
'Ms. Marvel' is set to premiere on June 8 and introduces Iman Vellani as Kamala Khan, aka the titular character, who is a Muslim American teenager growing up in Jersey City.
An avid gamer and a voracious fan-fiction scribe, Kamala is a superhero mega-fan with an oversized imagination - particularly when it comes to Captain Marvel.
Yet, Kamala feels like she doesn't fit in at school and sometimes even at home - that is, until she gets super powers like the heroes she's always looked up to.
The cast also includes Aramis Knight, Saagar Shaikh, Rish Shah, Zenobia Shroff, Mohan Kapur, Matt Lintz, Yasmeen Fletcher, Laith Nakli, Azhar Usman, Travina Springer and Nimra Bucha.
Akhtar is currently helming 'Jee Le Zaraa', starring Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Alia Bhatt and Katrina Kaif.
He also has a multi-year partnership with Netflix via his and Ritesh Sidhwani's Mumbai-based Excel Entertainment.
'Ms. Marvel' episodes are directed by Adil El Arbi & Bilall Fallah, Meera Menon and Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy. Kevin Feige, Louis D'Esposito, Victoria Alonso and Bisha K.Ali are the executive producers.
