Harish Patel, best known for his portrayal as Ibu Hatela in the film Gunda, is a member of Marvel’s Eternals. Memes still use his renowned and humorous phrase, “Mera Naam Hai Ibu Hatela, Maa Meri Chudail Ki Beti, Baap Mera Shaitaan Ka Chela, Khaayega Kela?”
In a recent interview with a portal, Harish recounted how he got the role of Eternals and also spoke about his first meeting with Salma Hayek.
Harish Patel reminisces about his Eternals auditions.
The actor told the entertainment portal Pinkvilla “When Marvels gave me this job in ‘Eternals,’ the name of my character was not Karun, it was something else, which I don’t recall now,” actor Harish Patel told entertainment website Pinkvilla. So, three months after I gave the audition, and they were supposed to start shooting on September 28 or August 29, my manager sent me a message saying that I’d have to come to London for the final audition, and the mail asked if I could fly the next day. I explained that it doesn’t work that way because I’ll have to apply for an entertainment visa first, following which I’ll be able to enter the nation and give the audition.”
Gemma Chan, Richard Madden, Kumail Nanjiani, Lia McHugh, Brian Tyree Henry, Lauren Ridloff, Barry Keoghan, Don Lee, Gil Birmingham, Kit Harington, Salma Hayek, and Angelina Jolie are among the cast members of Eternals.
