“I came across some comments on Twitter today that we might have hurt the sentiments of our viewers over a stint in the show. We would never target a particular ethnicity. That was never our intention,” he said in the video.

“Our targetted audience ranges from a four-year-old to an eight-year-old. We receive massive viewership from the K-P region,” added Nabeel.

“There are several characters on the show. We never meant to disrespect anyone. Our only intention was to make our audience happy,” the actor concluded.
