Swara Bhasker is a no-nonsense person who is pretty vocal about her stand. It is her straight forwardness which usually lands her in problem on social media with the amount of criticism she receives. But Swara takes everything in her stride. Recently, she was called a 'B' grade actress and a 'needy outsider' on social media by Kangana Ranaut. In an exclusive interview with us for her upcoming digital release 'Flesh', the actress opened up on how she is attracted to empowering roles, she also opened up on social media criticism, reacted to labels and nasty comments made, allegations of supporting nepotism and more.

Opening up on her character in Flesh, she informed, "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." When asked about Kangana's comment on her, if it affects her personally, Swara shared, "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 mentality rather than saying anything about me or Taapsee (Pannu)."

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 criticised. I am completely okay with people having an opinion about me, like I have opinion about them. I have no problem with that."

She, however, emphasised that the main reason for her to answer back was when lies about her stand were being propagated. She responded, "Initially, I had replied with humour, if you noticed but I feel that you shouldn't say a lie. You can call me what you want, but you shouldn't lie. This video which went viral about me asking Karan Johar about nepotism is a very old one, in fact, earlier than the entire nepotism debate started. I, in fact, did not say nepotism. I said Bollywood is feudal and I stand by it. To say that I support nepotism, is quite frankly, a lie. It is a falsehood and at that point, I was like, that's it, you can call me whatever you want but you are lying. I am not unused to criticism, that is pretty much I get on social media, it really doesn't bother me. I know my calibre and I am confident about my craft. I don't need validation from anyone at all. I frankly don't need validation from either from an insider or outsider as well. I have never waited around to get validation from even Karan for that matter or anybody else."

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 believe in my own conviction. I don't need validation from anyone except my audience, which thankfully I have got."

I never took kangana swara sonam tapsee so seriously. But past days made me realize that kangana has been through a lot back days and she was so vocal about it but we hadn't paid any attention. I find kangana a muhfatt with points coz she doesn't do it for money. But swara and all they get a good certain amount and it's easy to manipulate a common man. Slow poison.

Sit down Kangana Ranaut. Who do you think you are to tell people what to do? You hire your own sister and brother to handle your business, then talk about nepotism, you've always flaunted foreign brands and you give lectures on swadeshi, you've slept around with married people and been accused of black magic by your ex-bf- you know how it feels, yet you go after another woman for your own agenda. You speak of SSR now, what did you do for him when he was alive? What have you done for any new comer for that matter? Wish you had realized that your talent is enough to give you fame. Stop provoking people to get attention. Stop this MEGALOMANIA. You are losing all the respect you managed to get from people. Being honest doesn not necessarily mean being vile and hateful. Knowing ones self worth is different than being a narcissist. PV POST!

Kangana, would it be nice to keep your mouth shut for a change? You like creating Drama. Who the hell are you to become judge and jury in Bollywood? Before you point a finger, three are pointing back to you.

Biggest Nepo product is Rangoli.I bet that once his child grow up, Kangana will promote them and make movies and then we can talk about Nepotism. Rangoli whose only existence is due to her sister shouldnt be the one complaining about Nepotism

"driven by ideals that are above their own narrow self, caste, and religion". Is that the delusion you are labouring under, Swara? Product of your own brainwashed JNU thinking that tolerates the worst in the ones you support, nay bootlick. You will continue to receive public rejection everytime you display your worthless attitude! We are happy to waste some time to show you your rightful spot. In the rubbish bin.

I love that Kangana and Rangoli have spent all day commenting on this video. Why? Because it's hard to stomach when someone calls Kangana out on being a LIAR. Yes, that's what she is. A huge, stinking liar. See, most of Swara's fans and admirers are not the kinds who spend their time posting comments. They lead fulfilling lives, active, immersed in ideas, and driven by ideals that are above their own narrow self, caste, and religion. So your string of dismissive and rude comments below is really reflective of the fact that the kind of people--yes, maybe only Kangana and Rangoli sitting in Himachal--have nothing better to do.
