It is in appreciation of Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy for her guidance through my days of working on it. It is an appreciation of Marvel. I'm proud to be part of their conscious inclusiveness. This show is a celebration of diversity and it certainly will bring joy and pride of self-identity to millions of young girls and boys of the sub-continent."
