When asked about “The Big Sick” Shenaz quoted” The Big Sick is the story about two families, a Pakistani family and an American family and the Pakistani family has lived in America for a long time and tried to assimilate their Pakistani values and cultures but are still subject to racism in America because racism to brown people is still very prominent in America. This is a very good time or the movie to come out because of all that is happening in America right ow. I play a young Pakistani girl, I am Anupam Kher’s daughter in the law in the film. We are Pakistanis but also Americans”
