Actor Harish Patel, known for his classic work in Bollywood has been receiving much love for his most recent release Eternals. Yes, the actor made it to The Eternals of the Marvel Cinematic Universe!
From Gunda's Ibu Hatela to Eternals' Karun, the actor recently opened up about landing a role in the MCU film. Patel was portrayed as a valet for one of the Eternals, Kingo, who goes on to become a Bollywood star. Fans loved and praised the actor's character, Karun, who provided comic relief in the film.
Marvel Studios proves to the world just how essential he is to the film. Here's a poster of Karun, aka Harish Patel.
Karun, Kingo's manager, is played by the actor in Eternals (Kumail Nanjiani). "I was able to talk a lot about movies with Kumail." He was present when I gave my final audition in London, and he assisted me with the English lines. "The entire cast was very accommodating of me," says the actor, who mentions how Hollywood's professionalism distinguishes it from our film industry.
"The real hero of #Eternals," Kumail wrote on Twitter, alongside the poster.
Harish had previously stated that he had never seen any of his co-stars' films. "To be honest, I'd never seen any of their films," he admitted. I'd seen one of Angelina Jolie's movies, but not all of them; I can't sit still for long periods of time. They were unknown to me. Immediately following my audition, I was called in for a table read, and all of these stars were present except Angelina. Everyone was present. From the beginning, I felt like I was a member of the family."
The latest film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe tells a story of the Eternals, an immortal alien race that emerges from hiding after thousands of years to protect Earth from their evil counterparts, the Deviants. Gemma Chan, Richard Madden, Kumail Nanjiani, Lia McHugh, Brian Tyree Henry, Lauren Ridloff, Barry Keoghan, Don Lee, Harish Patel, Kit Harington, Salma Hayek, and Angelina Jolie star in the film directed by Academy Award winner Chloe Zhao.
