The MCU movie released last year received mixed reviews from both audiences and critics, but the majority were on the plus side. It stars an ensemble cast including Gemma Chan, Richard Madden, Kumail Nanjiani, Lia McHugh, Brian Tyree Henry, Lauren Ridloff, Barry Keoghan, Don Lee, Harish Patel, Kit Harington, Salma Hayek and Angelina Jolie.
In a recent conversation with ETimes, Thapki Pyar Ki 2 star Aakash Ahuja talks about auditioning for the Marvel Cinematic Universe movie Eternals. Interestingly, the television star states that the creators were interested in casting him for the role of a character named Kingo. Ultimately, the role went to Pakistani-American comedian and actor Kumail Nanjiani.
Aakash Ahuja told the news portal: “I remember getting the audition call from California. The first time I didn’t believe it, but when we had a meeting I knew for sure. I auditioned for the character played by Kumail Nanjiani in the movie Eternals and I did the meeting via video call. I was very optimistic about that, but it didn’t happen. But it was one of my exciting and interesting audition calls.”
“I believe strongly in fate, so no regrets and yes, I’m sure I’ll get a bigger and better chance in the future. I am someone who always lives in the present, so yes, hard work on the project I am working on, rest depends on fate and my efforts and yes the audience.”
Although Aakash Ahuja did not land the role in the Marvel movie, the actor is not losing hope and says that he now wants to focus on acting in Bollywood movies. “I always focus on what I’m doing and at the moment I’m committed to the Thapki Pyaar Ki 2. I will definitely pick up a Bollywood project in the future – with the right script, good character and scope of execution.”
