Eternals’ premiere in Los Angeles turned out to be a star-studded affair with stars like Angelina Jolie gracing the red carpet. Kumail Nanjiani who is a Pakistani-American stand-up comedian, actor, writer, and podcast host attended the premiere in a Sherwani.
Nanjiani wore a Sherwani by a Pakistani designer Umar Sayeed.
The Stuber star revealed to the Hollywood Reporter, “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 U.S. So I called my mom, she gave me names of three amazing designers in Pakistan.”
Directed by Oscar-winning Chinese director Chloé Zhao (The Rider, Nomadland), Eternals is the 26th film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
