Leading Hollywood science fiction, superheroes and comic filmmaker Marvel Studios confirmed in August 2019 that a comic drama series based on a Muslim female superhero would be made for the first time.
Marvel Studios had announced that a drama series on the role of the first superhero Muslim woman Kamala Khan would be made soon, however, the studio did not provide any details regarding the string and cast of the drama based on this character.
Kamala Khan's character was actually introduced by Marvel Comics in her comic book on the characters of 'Miss Marvel', in which the role of this first Muslim female superhero was portrayed inspired by Captain Marvel.
Kamala Khan's role was that of Marvel Studios' first Muslim woman, who gained worldwide fame.
The character was created by Sana Amanat, a Pakistani-American writer and comics editor who has been working as an editor at Marvel Comics for many years.
Sana Amanat also lives in the US state of New Jersey and looking at the character, it seems that she created this character inspired by her own caste.
Following the fame of Kamala Khan's character, Marvel Studios had announced to make a drama series on the same character in August 2019 and the director of the same studio Kevin Fudge had confirmed that Kamala Khan's character will soon appear on the screen.
Kamala Khan is actually a Pakistani girl
However, he did not name any actress to play the role but said that the role would probably be given to a South Asian actress, ie an actress from Pakistan or India.
And when it comes to the same role, when Canadian-born Indian actress Matrai Rama Krishnan was spoken to, she expressed the wish that the role of Kamala Khan should be given to a Pakistani actress.
In an interview with showbiz website Entertainment Tonight, Canadian-born Indian actress Matrai Rama Krishnan said that giving the role of Muslim superhero Kamala Khan to an actress other than a Pakistani actress would be an injustice to Pakistanis.
Regarding the role, the Indian actress was asked if she would accept the offer of Kamala Khan's role. On which the actress said that since Kamala Khan's role is that of a Muslim girl of Pakistani origin and she is Indian and Tamil, which is why she thinks that she will not be able to play the role of Kamala Khan properly.
I am Tamil and Kamala Khan's character is Pakistani, so let her be a Pakistani actress, Matrai Rama Krishnan
According to Matrai Rama Krishnan, Pakistani actresses are very talented and Kamala Khan's superhero role should also be given to a Pakistani girl. He thinks that it would be unfair for Pakistanis to get the said role from an actress other than a Pakistani actress.
Tamil actress Matrai Ramakrishnan has been asked this question at a time when her comedy TV series (Never Have I Ever) was recently released on Netflix.
In the said series, Matrai Rama Krishnan has played the role of an Indian-American girl and her performance in the play was highly appreciated.
It was only after his stellar performance in the series that Maitri Rama Krishnan was considered suitable for South Asian roles in the Hollywood industry and in American dramas, which led him to seek his opinion on the role of Kamala Khan. Gone but he said that he wants a Pakistani actress to play the role of Kamala Khan.
However, he refrained from naming any Pakistani actress. On the other hand, Marvel Studios has not yet released any explanation as to when Kamala Khan's character will appear on the screen and who will play her.
