Kiran addresses the imbalance of responsibilities that exist in most marriages

Sharing her insight on the same, she agreed on such a bias being prevalent in the society and concluded how it is an alarming time now, that this must be addressed. In her words:

“There’s so much responsibility on the woman to run the house, to keep the family together. In fact, women are expected to keep in touch with the in-laws, women are expected to be friends with your husband’s family. It’s a lot of expectation and to be able to navigate that I think needs discussion.”
