The Marvel Cinematic Universe is undergoing a transformation. It will introduce its first-ever Pakistani female superhero, Kamala Khan, in its upcoming Disney+ series Ms. Marvel. Iman Vellani, a Pakistani-Canadian actor, plays the lead role, but her family is represented by a trio of Indian actors. Kamala's father, Yusuf Khan, is played by veteran TV and film actor Mohan Kapur; her mother, Muneeba, is played by Zenobia Shroff; and her older brother, Aamir, is played by Indian-American actor Saagar Shaikh.

During a recent interaction with Hindustan Times, Kapur and Shroff spoke about Fawad Khan and Farhan Akhtar's appearances in the upcoming superhero series.

"They are stars," Kapur said when asked if they thought it was unfair that the spotlight was on the two stars' tiny roles rather than their larger roles. The actor shared that the audience rushes to the box office as soon as they hear their names, which is something they have earned. They are leaving their imprint and assisting them.

Kapur was ecstatic when he learned that Fawad and Farhan would be starring in the show. He said that one has to imagine how popular the show will become in South Asia and around the world, as it has admirers from all around. It's a big deal, and it's insignificant if one considers that Kapur is in more episodes, so why are people talking about the two heartthrobs? The veteran actor added that it's a very minor point of view. The actors supported them.

Zenobia goes on to say that in these instances, the artist must concentrate on the result rather than on himself. One has to stay on the product's side. It's impossible for them to be on their side. It's all about the product and claiming that the individual does not have it.

The Marvel careers of Kapur and Zenobia are just getting started. They'll also reprise their Ms. Marvel roles in the upcoming Captain Marvel sequel, The Marvels, in tiny roles. Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson, Teyonah Parris, and Iman Vellani feature in the film, which will be released on July 28, 2023.
