Swara Bhasker says she is tired of being called outspoken: ‘I am at all times mendacity to people at movie screenings’ – bollywood


Swara Bhasker is frequently known to be ‘outspoken’ and not mince any words but she doesn’t think it is true. She said in a new interview that she lies at movie screenings always and never gives a negative review to a movie or performance.

According to Swara, she only expresses her views on subjects that ‘are applicable to a greater, larger good’. With regards to films and performances, she either reserves her comments or lies that she liked it.

In an interview with Hrishikesh Kannan, Swara said, “I am beginning to hate this label. I don’t even realize what it means. I am at all times mendacity to people at movie screenings approximately how their movie was once. I do that very polite. I don’t give views whether I don’t feel they’re applicable to a greater, larger good. I never give negative reviews to films. Whether I don’t find it irresistible, I don’t say anything or I lie… Because as an actor, I realize the type of work that goes into making a movie and into people’s performances. Even though it has failed to reach what it tried to do, there is an effort there that I realize, because I am from that world.”

Swara said she shares her opinions only on ‘things that impact us as a society’. “People think I am very critical and outspoken. I am like, you don’t realize half the s**t that It’s not that i am saying! It’s a quite tiring label to carry around now,” she said.

Earlier this year, Swara voiced her dissent against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) and National Register of Citizens (NRC), and even took to the roads to demostrate against them.

Swara was once seen in two web series earlier this year. In the Amazon Prime Video series Rasbhari, she played a schoolteacher from Meerut. The show was once at the centre of a controversy after Central Board of Movie Certification (CBFC) chief Prasoon Joshi raised an objection to its ‘irresponsible satisfied’. Then again, she defended the show and said that he had misinterpreted a scene of a girl dancing.

Swara was once also seen in Eros Now series Flesh, in which she played a cop hunting human traffickers. Her next show, Bhaag Beanie Bhaag, will release on Netflix.
