Hi Shruti,

you need the stress pronoun "lui" here. Even in English you would say: "Marie and HIM" which is the English version of a stress pronoun.

Bonjour Shruti !

While in English, you could nowadays use colloquially either he or him in subject groups, in French, you can only use the stress pronoun lui.

Bonne journée !
