Bisha K Ali's mini series, Ms Marvel, starring Iman Vellani in the lead, dropped on Disney+ Hotstar on June 8. The six-episode series hit the headlines recently when the news of Farhan Akhtar playing a character in it was revealed. The superhero project from Marvel Studios marks his Hollywood debut.

He had taken to his Twitter page a couple of days ago to thank the crew for the wonderful experience and congratulated its makers for ensuring that the series is inclusive. He also heaped praises on the talented Iman and went on to describe her as an effortless charmer.

Upon its release, the series has garnered the attention of fans of Rajinikanth and AR Rahman. Its first episode features the song Oh Nanba from the Superstar's Lingaa which was released in 2014. The song appears in a crucial sequence and needless to say, mutual admirers of Rajini and Rahman are elated after knowing this.

The peppy song crooned by the late legendary singer SP Balasubrahmanyam was the introduction number of Rajini in the KS Ravikumar directorial. Though the song doesn't feature in the all time popular numbers of the singer, his fans, too, are happy that it found a place in the popular series.

The makers of Ms Marvel have credited the song in its end title cards. Vairamuthu and Rahman have jointly penned lyrics for the song which was lapped up by Rajini fans upon its release as Lingaa marked the star's return to the silver screen after a four-year hiatus.

Thalaivar fans are excited that their matinee idol's popularity has once again been incorporated into a non-Tamil film. The recent Bollywood flick Toolsidas Junior, starring Sanjay Dutt and Sara Arjun, was the previous instance where a non-Tamil movie had a reference to Rajinikanth.
