Ms. Marvel follows Kamala Khan, a Pakistani-American girl living in Jersey City who discovers she has superpowers. Kamala’s brother Amir marries in the third episode, which debuted on Disney+ Hotstar on Wednesday afternoon. This means the Marvel show will have a long montage set to legendary songs depicting a desi Muslim wedding. While there were certain flaws in how the wedding was depicted, viewers were prepared to overlook much of it to see a desi wedding in the MCU.

This was followed by the wedding and a reception-cum-sangeet in which Kamala’s relatives performed dances for the bride and groom. This segment features her parents dancing to Helen’s famous song Yeh Mera Dil from the 1978 film Don, while Kamala and her cousins for the title track from Dil Bole Hadippa.
