Confirming the same, Harish Patel told Indian Express, “Yes, the man you saw in the teaser is me. I can just confirm that I am doing Eternals but cannot speak about it right now. The makers haven’t even announced my name, and I will wait for them to do that.”
Harish Patel, 67, is a well-known face from both stage and screen. His long-standing career includes roles in films such as ‘Mandi’, ‘Gunda’, ‘Mr India’, ‘Andaz Apna Apna’ and ‘Zubeidaa’. He has also been an active part of Indian TV and has some international credits like ‘Run Fatboy Run’, ‘Coronation Street’ and ‘The Buddha Of Suburbia’.
