In the video interview shared by the Quint in March, Vidya says, "Siddharth (Roy Kapur) and I are on calls at the same time. They (domestic cook) don't mind interrupting me, but they mind interrupting Siddharth. Because I just think that they feel the man is working and the woman isn't, doesn't matter what I do. Somewhere I think at home you're just... They feel ki thik hai na, didi ko to puch sakte hain."
Later, Shefali also recalled an incident when she attended the screening of her series, Delhi Crime at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival and said that during the special event, her son repeatedly was calling her while she was sitting in the audience. "I message him saying, 'you know baby, I'm in the middle of my first screening showcasing of Delhi Crime at the Sundance'. And he is like 'send me the OTP...I was like 'are you serious.'" Vidya and Shefali's thriller film, Jalsa was released in March, this year.
