Ms Marvel is a day away from its release and who better to hype it up than a renowned cast member? Indian actor Farhan Akhtar took his time to appreciate all that stood out to him during the shoots and director Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy's "guidance" made the cut.

On Tuesday, he wrote a long appreciation note for the team and posted it in a tweet. He was sure to mention the date and channel for the show's first episode. "Tomorrow, 8th June, will see the release of the first episode of Ms Marvel on Disney+ Hotstar.

"This post is in appreciation of the creators, the directors and all those in front and behind the camera, who collaborated to make Ms Marvel what it is," he wrote. "It is in appreciation of Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy for her guidance through my days of working on it. It is in appreciation of Marvel, I'm proud to be a part of their conscious inclusiveness."

The Toofaan actor explained that the series is more than just entertainment. He said it celebrates diversity and will undoubtedly be a source of joy and pride of self-identity to millions of young girls and boys of the sub-continent.

He did not forget to show appreciation for the main character, Ms Marvel herself. "And last but not the least, it is in appreciation of the wonderfully talented Iman Vellani. Be prepared to be thoroughly entertained and effortlessly charmed by her."

He concluded with a thank you and wished the team well.
