Ever since Marvel Studios dropped the trailer of Eternals, it has been creating a lot of buzz on social media. But what makes it even more special is that the superhero film has an Indian connection.

London-based Indian designer Saran Kohli bagged the opportunity to design costumes for an “epic scene” in the film. Elated, the designer took to Instagram to share how he loved superhero costumes as a child. “As a kid, I had all superhero costumes and felt I can jump off my roof and hit the skies,” he wrote, alongside a picture of actor and comedian Kumail Nanjiani donning his creation in the movie. The picture is from a dance number.

“…now the skies gave me the opportunity of a lifetime!” the designer added.
