She told the portal, “If you see who these two girls are now, they are superwomen in a way. Naagin is a superwoman who is saving India from whatever is happening. So it’s not only a supernatural thing, also that she is a superwoman who has superpowers. So if you watch English Hollywood movies where you watch Spiderman, you expect Superman to save everyone from the bad. Wahan pe accept kar lete ho, lekin jab auratein aati hai aur strong character nibhati hai toh problem ho jaati hai. (You can accept it there, but have a problem when women become strong characters) What is the problem? I don’t understand. English mein accept karte ho but Hindi mein nahi karna (You can accept it in English, but do not want to accept it in Hindi).”
