The Pakistani-American actor and comedian Kumail Nanjian becomes the first Pakistani actor to enter Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). The 43-year-old actor wore purple sherwani by a famous Pakistani designer Umer Sayeed to the red carpet premiere of his upcoming MCU movie, The Eternals, in Los Angeles.

When asked why he chose a Pakistani designer and a traditional dress like sherwani instead of a tuxedo, the Academy-nominated actor said, “I wanted to wear a sherwani because 1. They look awesome and 2. My costume in the film always reminded me of sherwanis. And I wanted to use a designer in Pakistan, not just a Pakistani designer in the US. So I called my mum, she gave me the names of three amazing designers in Pakistan. Purple and gold are a beautiful combination. The paisley pattern is very traditional as well.”
