“Time is ticking. Today, globally you have people of presence, people who make an impact by speaking only one thing that is climate change and the adverse effects it will have on our future generations to come and us. And we need to panic and I am going to say this out there — please panic, please be scared because we really don’t have time,” said Bhumi, who also identifies as a climate warrior.

She added: “We are going to see big things in the near future — like literally 10 years away. Look at this year — we are in the middle of a pandemic, we have had cyclones, forest fires, and the world is burning up. It is not a good time and let us get our act together because it is not good.”

The actress says that humans will have to move towards using renewable sources of energy.

“We will have to move towards using renewable sources of energy. We will have to stop exhausting fossil fuels. We will have to understand the permanent damages that have already been caused and we are headed towards a major crisis for all of humanity. We will need to preserve, protect and nurture this earth because we don’t have planet B. It is our duty and responsibility to understand this,” she added.

“Now it depends on Netflix. They have not got back to us yet. Fingers crossed. If I had my way, yes, naturally. With this kind of success, with all the love and working with your friends — yeah — for sure,” Maheep told IANS about wanting a second season.

The show revolves around the day-to-day lives of Bollywood wives Maheep, Seema Khan (wife of Sohail Khan), Bhavana Pandey (Chunky Panday’s wife) and Neelam Kothari (who is married to Sameer Soni), who have been friends for 25 year. Superstar Shah Rukh Khan and his wife Gauri make a cameo.

The series has drawn comparisons with the American reality show, The Real Housewives Of New Jersey.

“It’s a reality show. When I was signed on that is when I saw these shows. I saw one one episode. I mean, yeah, okay I guess but I think ours is still unique. I didn’t see the connection but people are comparing us to them. I mean that is a massive success so I think we are doing a good thing. So it is fine with me. I am okay with it,” she said.
