Maitreyi Ramakrishnan says Ms Marvel should be played by a Pakistani


Maitreyi of recent Never Have I Ever fame was asked by ET about whether she'd be interested in taking on the role of Ms Marvel – Kamala Khan. "I've seen a couple posts about that, but honestly, no," she said. "Kamala Khan is Pakistani and I'm Tamil. If there was a Tamil superhero, I wouldn't want to see a Pakistani girl playing [her]. I would say, 'Really? You couldn't find anybody who was Tamil?' So why would I want to do that to the Pakistani community? That wouldn't be fair." There has been much anticipation about who would play the character and with a statement like this out, the character should be pushed to get true Pakistani representation.
