So.. seeing Fawad Khan on screen(personally) in Ms Marvel after a long time was a delightful treat to the eyes & for heart as well. I wish he had more screen time or to appear in more episodes. He is one of those rare actors who acts with his eyes more. #FawadKhan #MsMarvel pic.twitter.com/b9OnGtzTdh
