Apart from the thrill, the cosmic energy, and the appearance of Bollywood actor Farhan Akhtar, the series has impressed desis with its South Asian representation.

A scene from the fourth episode, ‘Seeing Red’, of the series is specifically being praised as it mentions the Indo-Pak partition. Here, Kamala is seen having a conversation with her nani who informs her how she is still, after so many decades,trying to figure out her true self, who she is.

The partition wrecked havoc in the lives of the citizens of both countries with a lot of them separating from their loved ones.

Nani (played by Samina Ahmad) goes on to share the grief and pain that is still housed in her heart ever since the two countries parted ways.

From her body language, her appearence and her thoughts, nani closely depicts a South Asian woman her age dwelling in the past and secretly wishing the event never happened.

People online got emotional on watching the heartwarming scene. This is what they said:

The fact that they showed Pakistan and their culture so well just stole the show.

In the past, there have been multiple instances when people called out celebs for cultural inappropriateion. We’re glad that MCU has taken the efforts to research and fact check about the cultures and the history of both the countries.
