Swara Bhaskar in an exclusive interview spoke for her upcoming digital release ‘Flesh’, Swara Bhasker also opened up on how she is attracted to empowering roles,
On her character in Flesh, she said, “It was definitely a show which was draining when we shot it. But luckily for me, I play the role of a cop who is at it to expose the crime. It is such an empowering character. There is a lot of hope in the story.”
she also opened up on social media criticism, reacted to labels and comments made by Kangana Ranaut, allegations of supporting nepotism.
Swara said, “Firstly, in my head, B stands for ‘best’ so I am like go ahead and call me whatever you like. Sometimes what people say reveals more about their mentality than the people they are talking about. That is what happened with the “needy outsider” and “B grade” actors debate. It is really just that. I think people were revealing their own mind rather than saying anything about me or Taapsee.”
She added, “Plus I want to say this, it is a democratic society and people have the right to their opinion and I believe in freedom of speech and expression and I would defend anyone’s right even if it means I have to listen to gaalis or be criticized. I am completely okay with people having an opinion about me like I have an opinion about them. I have no problem with that.”
She concluded, “I am a person who has stood up for what I believe in, to the extent, I had written a letter to Sanjay Leela Bhansali, who is one of the biggest directors and I had put my name on that letter. That is my level of belief in my own conviction. I don’t need validation from anyone except my audience, which thankfully I have got.”
