Sikander, who is 34, was so happy her art was chosen for the show’s final episode that she took to Instagram to thank the people who made it.
She wrote: “It’s a dream come true to be commissioned by @marvelstudios x @disney to create artwork for @msmarvelofficial. Absolutely a pleasure to be part of this amazing opportunity to work on Episode 6 .
“I can see Kamala’s strong family values in which she cannot hide anything from her family and friends which shows her pure love towards them all. I can understand this very well because I have a very strong bond with my father and I know that he trusts me blindly. In this episode, Kamala’s belt given by her mother is a veil of trust. I also love the impact of crystallization.
