Originally speaking in Hindi, a lose translation of what Bachchan is saying, reads, 'Even if you want to comment, comment positively. But no, you are just passing your verdicts.' To this, Navya, also speaking in Hindi, adds, 'The same people will not be able to say those things if we make them sit in front of you'. Jaya chimes on, saying, 'They won’t have the courage. If you are actually brave, comment on actual issues and show your faces.'
