While fans are excited to spot Harish in the teaser, however, the actor’s IMDB page doesn’t credit him in the role in Marvel’s Eternals. The talented actor has films like Mr India, Gunda, Mohra to his credit. Interestingly, since 2005, Harish has starred in several international projects. He last featured in the Hulu series’ Four Weddings and a Funeral (2019).
Coming back to Eternals, the film is scheduled to release in October 2021.
