“I can’t refute or lie about it anymore since they’ve released the information themselves,” Fawad Khan continued.
Though the actor managed to keep quiet about any further specifics about his role, he did speak about his time on set. “It was a fantastic experience, and it was a lot of fun.” “It was great joy working with the cast and crew, but I’m afraid I can’t say much more at this point in time,” Fawad added.
When his name was added to the cast of the international ‘Ms. Marvel’ series on its IMDb website in June this year, news of a Pakistani celebrity being featured in the series began to circulate.
