The Eternals: Harish Patel gets billing on new poster with Angelina Jolie, Kit Harington and others
Harish Patel, who has long worked in multiple Bollywood movies, will be seen in Marvel's upcoming superhero movie Eternals.
Marvel released a new trailer and a new poster for their upcoming superhero movie Eternals on Thursday. The trailer offered no new glimpse at actor Harish Patel but the poster has a surprise treat for his fans.
In the new poster, which features all the Eternals, even Harish has got a mention. He is among the actors billed underneath the title. "Gemma Chan, Richard Madden, Kumail Nanjiani, Lia McHugh, Bryan Tyree Henry, Lauren Ridloff, Barry Keoghan, Harish Patel with Kit Harington, with Salma Hayek with Angelina Jolie," have been billed in that order.
Harish plays the manager of Kumail's Bollywood superstar in the movie. Of course, Kumail is actually an Eternal, pretending to be an actor to keep his identity hidden.
Previously, Harish has spoken about how he landed the role and the cast's warm attitude towards him. Speaking about the cast, he told Pinkvilla in an interview, "I knew Angelina Jolie, but I knew nothing of the others who were working with me. At the table read, on one side was Kumail Nanjiani, and on the other there was Richard Madden. I had no idea he was so popular, on Game of Thrones."
Speaking with PTI, Harish said about his work in Hollywood, "In India, I am a character actor. Here people think I am sitting idle but I am regularly doing work there (in the West). I am very happy that I am getting attention (here) after so many years. People would often refer to me as Ibu Hatela from Gunda but I feel my work in other films was equally good."
Chloe Zhao, who recently won an Oscar for best director for her film Nomadland, has penned Eternals screenplay with Patrick Burleigh Ryan Firpo and Matthew K Firpo. She has also directed the movie. Produced by Marvel Studios, Eternals will be released in November this year.
