Although the family love between Kate and Edwina is shown in many details that they have with each other, it is certainly more effectively portrayed by their nicknames. Kate calls Edwina “good”, which means “sister” in Bengali, also known by its bangla endonym. Meanwhile, Edwina calls Kate “I made”, which means “older sister” in Hindi.

As Screen Rant highlights, India has a complex linguistic history. The country currently has 22 official languages, that is, it has the largest number of official languages ​​in the world. “Bengali and Hindi are among its official languages, but Hindi is much more prolific in Mumbai than Bengali, which is mainly spoken in North and Central India.”, indicated the aforementioned medium.

Also, Kate’s real name, Kathani, is technically Tamil and means “statement” in Hindi, which could be a way to reflect the nature of the woman who won Anthony over in the second season of “Bridgerton”.

Although the series Netflix created by Chris Van Dusen bets on the diversity of its characters, as in the case of the Sharmas, it does not always faithfully reflect the culture to which they belong, which provokes some criticism.
