Exclusive: Eternals Choreographer Nileeka Bose Says Bollywood Dance Was ‘100 Percent Kumail Nanjiani’

Marvel Studios’ Eternals features the South Asian hero Kingo Sunen, played by stand-up comedian, actor and screenwriter Kumail Nanjiani. In the film, Kingo becomes a Bollywood superstar, so Nanjiani had to step into unfamiliar territory and learn to dance, and dance well enough to blend in alongside 50 professional dancers. To make sure the Kingo actor didn’t stick out like a stubbed toe, Marvel hired Bollywood choreographer Nikeela Bose to work with him for several months prior to the first Bollywood rehearsal, so Nanjiani would be prepared to learn the choreography in three days.
