Four badass women come together, play a song that I wrote when I was 15 and it’s getting its flowers. So, I’m very emotional and I’m very glad and I’m, just, I don’t even know. I’m in this hall of a ship, we’re about to perform in about 20 minutes or so. I don’t know how I’m going to do that but this is great. So, thank you.”

To encourage her, actor Sarwat Gilani stopped by the comment section and commented, “You go girl.”

“Bring ’em all home, superstar,” said actor Ushna Shah.
