New Delhi, Oct 20 (PTI) Hollywood star Kumail Nanjiani says he initially turned down the idea of performing a Bollywood dance sequence in "Eternals", but director Chloe Zhao convinced him to step out of his comfort zone.

Nanjiani, best known for "Silicon Valley" series and the film "The Big Sick", plays Eternal Kingo who can project cosmic energy projectiles from his hands. While living on Earth, he lives undercover as a popular Bollywood star to blend in with the humans.

The upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe film revolves around the Eternals, an alien race living on Earth for over 7,000 years, who team up to protect humanity from their evil counterparts, the Deviants.
