While we saw Bollywood actor Farhan Akhtar playing Waleed in the last episode, the latest episode introduced Fawad Khan as a character from the partition era of India. The name of his character is Hasan, who is introduced as Kamala’s great-grandfather.
The pre-Independence era in Ms Marvel, shows Hasan, a freedom fighter meets Aisha (Mehwish Hayat). However, after they have a family, they are forced to consider moving to Pakistan, along with their daughter Sana. The intriguing episode also showcases how Hasan (Fawad Khan) managed to get on the last train to Pakistan only with his daughter Sana.
However, the Pakistani actor had a short role in the series, but still fans are going gaga over it. MCU introducing him in the latest episode will surely help Fawad in expanding his fan following.
The actor gained a huge fan base in India after his Pakistani limited series Zindagi Gulzar hai and Humsafar was broadcasted on ‘Zindagi’ channel introduced in India to strength the India-Pakistan relationship in 2017.
