Indians didn't however agree with everything said in the video
"I'm an Indian woman and am offended by this video. Why would you say that woman in India are not allowed to become a pilot? Ofcourse they are, aren't there many Indian pilots around? There must be something else. Stop generalizing and defaming India!"
"Appreciated and Inspiring. But it's not that women in India are not allowed or it's hard for them to become a Pilot, it might be a case with her family or just herself. Let's not diminish the facts and criticize the whole country for a spicy story script."
"But how did she manage to own atleast a single jet. It's not like buying some car or bike guys.. It's a private jet that costs millions.. Nas is really skipping the actual content here..."
"India soars at the top with the maximum number of female commercial pilots as compared to any other country. I don’t know which India they are talking in their show."
