Incredible to have Bollywood, dance sequence in Marvel movie: Filmmaker Chloe Zhao

New Delhi: Oscar-winning filmmaker Chloe Zhao says Kingo in “Eternals” is a character that “loves pop culture and showmanship”, which is why making him a Bollywood star grooving to a “beautiful, joyous dance sequence” in the big Marvel movie felt “incredible”.

The “Nomadland” director said Kingo, played by Pakistani-American star Kumail Nanjiani, was always supposed to be a Bollywood hero.

“When I came into the process, there was a treatment and in the treatment, there are always stories and parts that take place in Mumbai. Kingo is a Bollywood star in the present day and I thought that was so interesting because we knew Kingo is going to be a character that embraced the side of humanity that loves pop culture, that loves storytelling, that showmanship,” Zhao said, responding to a question from PTI during a round table interview with international journalists over Zoom.
