Maitreyi Ramakrishnan wants to be a superhero, but knows that Kamala Khan isn't the right one for her. https://t.co/t9jrMim1Qu— Entertainment Tonight (@etnow) May 11, 2020
"I've seen a couple posts about that, but honestly, no," she tells ET's Melicia Johnson."Kamala Khan is Pakistani and I'm Tamil. If there was a Tamil superhero, I wouldn't want to see a Pakistani girl playing [her]. I would say, 'Really? You couldn't find anybody who was Tamil?' So why would I want to do that to the Pakistani community? That wouldn't be fair."
