Never Have I Ever

Maitreyi Ramakrishnan, the Canadian actor has been making headlines with her performance in the Netflix show Never Have I Ever. She played the role of an Indian girl living abroad. In a recent interview with a news portal, the actor revealed the reason why she was not willing to do the role of Kamala Khan in Ms Marvel. This was after her fans widely demanded her to portray the role.

Maitreyi Ramakrishnan when asked about portraying the role of Kamala Khan, said that if there was a Tamil Superhero, she wouldn’t want to see a Pakistani girl playing the character. She added that she would feel like the makers didn’t find a Tamil actor to play the role. Maitreyi then said that she wouldn't want to do that to the Pakistani community as it wouldn’t be fair.

Furthermore, Maiteryi Ramakrishnan said that she would love to be a superhero as she loves Marvel so much. She added that she could be the daughter of Deadpool or his apprentice. She even went on to say that it would be great as she and Ryan Reynolds would both crack Canadian jokes.
