While speaking to ANI, Shehnaaz called the Women’s Reservation Bill a great step. Shehnaaz said, “If we are given rights and equal treatment, parents too will support girls. I come from a small village, girls are married off so that they get settled. But after this, if girls and boys are treated as equals, a lot of things in the country will change.”

Bhumi Pednekar also lauded the Bill and stated that it will help increase the role of women in policymaking. The actress said, “As a modern Indian woman, representation is very important for us.

It is a matter of pride for us that we came here with our cast.”
