The episode introduces Fawad as Hasan, a freedom fighter who loses his heart to Ayesha, a creature from another world. The two marry and have a daughter named Kamala’s grandmother. However, during the partition, he is separated from his daughter but she finds a way to return to him. Fawad and Mehwish Hayat–who is also a popular Pakistani actor and plays Ayesha on the show–will share some romantic scenes together, which their fans are eagerly waiting for.
Taking to Twitter, many left Fawad thirsty and hilarious comments. “I’m not over you. I’m not over you yet. I’ll never be over you. That’s the power you have, Fawad Khan,” wrote a fan. Sharing a scene between Fawad and Mehwish, a fan wrote, “If Fawad Khan sees me like this I will spontaneously combust.” Another tweeted, “I understand Aisha, I too had a little crush on Fawad Khan in 5 minutes.”
Many called him the perfect bait to finally get Desi to watch the show. “Fawad Khan in Ms Marvel oh I’m starting that show,” wrote one. Another said, “Fawad Khan hai hi itna hot doosre dimension ke log bhi pighal jaayen (Fawad Khan is so hot, he can melt even people from different dimensions).” A fan analyzed, “I’m so happy that amazing people have seen Fawad Khan once and know that charm translates to every language and culture.” With all these tweets, Fawad is currently trending on Twitter in India.
In last week’s episode, the show introduced Farhan Akhtar as Waleed, a wise man who helps Kamala realize what she is and the threat that looms large around the world. Episodes of the series come weekly on Disney+ Hotstar.
