Kumail Nanjiani confirms that Eternals, Marvel's New Movie will have a Bollywood scene

Eternals, Marvel's next big gun is set to come later this year. It is a more hushed project by Marvel. It is about a group of near-immortals who are gifted with superpowers. They have to protect the Earth from their negative counterparts. Kumail Nanjiani who is a part of the film confirmed the Bollywood presence in the movie.

 
The select participants of CCXP in Brazil got a peek into the film. It showed different actors in costume. Among them was Najiani as his character Kingo in his Bollywood attire. Najiani offered some explanation saying "We were sort of sent to Earth thousands of years ago to protect Earth from these monsters called the Deviants, and that's sort of our story. And a lot of it is set in the present so by this point, we've been on Earth for a long time, and my character, for instance, we were all like, 'Alright, keep a low profile, nobody should know,' and so I go and become a Bollywood movie star. That's like my secret identity."
 
Najiani is a part of a huge cast. It includes Richard Madden, Gemma Chan, Lauren Ridloff, Brian Tyree Henry, Salma Hayek, Lia McHugh, Don Lee, Barry Keoghan, Kit Harington, and Angelina Jolie. Nobody knows if that is it.
 
Najiani talked about his excitement to join the cast Eternals. Sources say it is going to be the most diverse film within the Marvel franchise. It is going to have its very first queer character 'Phastos' and hearing-impaired character 'Makkari'.It keeps getting better!.
 
Najiani informed me that he is not the only South Asian character in the movie. There are many more who join him. He said "I was so like moved immediately. I was like, 'Oh my God, we went from like none to like so many of us in one scene!" Marvel seems to be fulfilling the demands of its fans much faster than we expected.
