Ms. Marvel’s Mohan Kapur Confirms His Role In The Marvels
While Iman Vellani’s Kamala Khan made her MCU debut in Ms. Marvel, she will be back next year in The Marvels alongside Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel/Carol Danvers and Teyonah Parris’ Monica Rambeau. It’s been known for a while that other Ms. Marvel cast members will also appear in the movie. But now, Mohan Kapur, the actor who portrays Kamala’s father, Yusuf Khan, is shedding some light on the role that the Khan family will play in the film.
“The Khan family is very intrinsic to the Captain Marvel sequel that is called The Marvels,” said Kapur during an interview with the Times of India. “We are going to London to complete the film. The Khan family is there while their daughter is saving the universe. The Khan family is a typical South-Asian family. ‘Arey mera baccha kaha jaa raha hai?’… ‘Beta kuch khaya? Sleep on time han…’ all this while she is out saving the world.”
Additionally, Kapur touched on the fan response to his character from the show, including Yusuf’s Hulk costume in episode 1.
“It is all very surprising because typically when you do a supporting role of a father, you don’t expect to get so much appreciation and accolades,” noted Kapur. “What I am getting is unreal. I go like ‘What? Really? Are they watching the same thing that I performed in?’ My friends told me that my life would change after this because Marvel has a completely different and loving fanbase. I guess they have been proven right and I don’t know how to react.”
“The amazing thing is that the love is coming from different parts of the world,” added Kapur. “It is coming from Hollywood, Spain, Italy, Africa, and all kinds of places where you didn’t realize they watch this show. The fact that they are appreciating a fatherly character is amazing.”
Ms. Marvel episode 5 will premiere next Wednesday, July 6 on Disney+. The Marvels will hit theaters on July 28, 2023.
