Swara Bhasker, an Indian actress who is known for having strong opinions on every social issue that comes up has been in the news, after she was called a B-grade star by her co-star and Popular Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut.
Recently in an interview with TOI, Swara put forward her thoughts about nepotism, being called out as a B-grade actress, and her bond with Tapsee Pannu. When asked about Kangana blaming her for deviating the conversation of Sushant Singh Rajput’s justice, Swara said, “I think when you call your colleagues “Chaaploos, chaatney waaley, needy outsider, B grade actress!” and other such flattering adjectives, the conversation tends to get deviated. I think that if Kangana wants this conversation to be about justice for Sushant, she shouldn’t make it about herself and her personal vendetta. She should celebrate Sushant, not deride everyone else.”
For taking a stand on nepotism debate, Swara agreed that nepotism does exist in the industry and she described it as a feudal system. Individual name calling will not work rather understanding the system will do according to her. She also stated that she questioned Karan Johar once in 2016 about the same.
She thanked OTT platforms and the audience for appreciating new talents and making a way in for outsiders.
“I choose films for the script and for the role. If a suitable project and role comes along I’m happy to work with anyone. I don’t hold people’s opinions against them. Kangana is a talented actress and a great performer”,Swara answered on being asked whether she’ll work in the future with Kangana or not.
Kangana graded Swara as a B-grade actress to which Swara was asked if she had to grade Kangana as an actress, “I think she is a top notch actress. My favorite Kangana performances are as Rani in ‘Queen’ and as Datto in ‘Tanu Weds Manu Returns’.” Said Swara.
Tapsee Pannu and Swara got closer after the war on twitter and Swara mentioned that earlier she used to admire Tapsee as an actress but now as a person too.
Later in the interview, Swara also shared about her bond with Sonam Kapoor Ahuja and how they plan about the future and talk and have fun chats.
