Till date, there have been many Indian actors who have swam ashore to Hollywood and acted in films across the pond. While some actors made a big hue and cry about their roles in Hollywood films, whereas, others chose to remain mum and let their work do the talking. One such person is the extremely versatile Harish Patel. After having won hearts with his affable acting in both TV as well as Bollywood, this man will now be seen in Marvel’s The Eternals.
While the exact role of Harish Patel in the film is yet to be known but he's seen next to Kumail Nanjiani in the trailer.
What’s amazing is his journey from Indian television to Hollywood films, and that too without making any noise about it. This is not the first time he is seen in a Hollywood film. Prior to this, he had starred in Four Weddings and a Funeral, Today’s Special, Grandpa's Great Escape, Lies We Tell, My Freakin' Family, TV series Coronation Street… to name a few.
Meanwhile, in Bollywood, Patel is best known for his roles in films like Mr. India, Gunda, Mohra, Tarazu, Gurudev etc..
And now for the rest of the cast in Marvel’s The Eternals. They include the likes of Angelina Jolie, Salma Hayek, Richard Madden, and Kumail Nanjiani. While Richard Madden will be seen playing Ikaris (one of the leaders of the Eternals), Salma Hayek will be seen as a gender-swapped version of Ajak.
