Suchitra Krishnamoorthi criticised Swara Bhaskar for saying that by the end of Sanjay Leela Bhansali's "Padmaavat" she "felt like a vagina". The singer questioned Swara's opinion pointing out that the actress essayed an "erotic dancer/prostitute" in films in the past.

Swara, who has been vocal about several issues and has worked with Bhansali in "Guzaarish", voiced her opinion via an open letter calling out the filmmaker for glorifying Sati and Jauhar in his film and said that she felt reduced to a vagina by the end of it.

Krishnamoorthi slammed the actress on Twitter. 

On Sunday, she tweeted: "Funny that an actress who can play an erotic dancer/prostitute with such elan should feel like a vagina after watching a story of a pious queen. What standards are these ...tch tch (sic)."

Swara however wrote back to Krishnamoorthi saying: "Funny that people cannot get over the fact that a woman said Vagina! Funny that in a 2440 word article making fairly comprehensible arguments they only remember the word Vagina So... Vagina vagina vagina vagina vagina vagina..vagina vagina VAGINA!"

Before the spat between the ladies began, Krishnamoorthi had also tweeted that "arent' these feminist debates on 'Padmaavat' rather dumb? It's a story ladies - not an advocacy of Jauhar for God's sake. Find another battle for your cause - a real one at all. Not historical fiction."

"Padmaavat", which has been released after a gruelling battle against members of fringe groups who were protesting the depiction of Rajputs in the film, is being criticised by a number of activists and individuals for glorifying and making the film as a tribute to Rajput pride, perhaps even to a fault.

The film which released on January 25, features actress Deepika Padukone as Rani Padmavati, alongside Shahid Kapoor as Maharawal Ratan Singh and Ranveer Singh as Sultan Alauddin Khilji. 

Actors Aditi Rao Hydari, Jim Sarbh, Raza Murad and Anupriya Goenka feature in supporting roles.

Swara behaving so childish...totally lost my respect!

Swara is in trauma plz take her to mental hospital

SLB was glorifying Jauhar the exact same way he glorified alcoholism and prostitution in Devdas. Same way people glorify gambling in gangster movies or killing in crime movies. Some aspects are just that - aspects of a movie. Swara shouldn't take it so seriously, just like Karni sena shouldn't take it so seriously. Only thing that I would say about this movie is that it was disheartening that people like Priyanka Chopra and Amitabh Bachchan didn't speak out against the threat against one of their former colleagues and member of their beloved "film fraternity". This was world news, and it was shocking to me that people with huge platforms like theirs refused to condemn this violence and speak out about it.

Swara has always been a little too opinionated for her own good. This is just a continuation of it

Repeating the same V word again and again makes her look sleazy and attention seaking in a pathetic way. Just by using V word does not make her a feminist.

Bhai/Behen, Vagina bol de. You aren't doing any good to yourself by purposely avoiding writing the "V word". The very act of avoiding/prohibiting the use of a word actually gives it all the more attention. And I honestly don't know how uttering the biological name of a body organ should be any more controversial than saying that of another, eg, brain. It becomes a problem when you give it a derogatory alt-name, like dick for penis or pussy for vagina. Simple as that.

Suchitra past opinions have been inflammatory but I think SB opinion on this movie was kinda lame

I don't agree with Swara but what does playing a prostitute have anything to do with this?

Suchitra...wtg. Finally a woman with a proper intellectual head on her shoulders!!

I agree with Suchitra this time, Swara is one frustrated soul, if she was in the movie she would have said something like this, all these people are so fake, besides who cares about her opinion as if SLB cares.

I agree with her and Swara's response shouts of frustration. She lost a lot of fans with that letter

yes, totally agree with swara. even if a woman gets raped, she still can have the will and courage to live. by glorifying jauhar, essentially the narrow minded approach of valuing honor over life is propagated.

Jauhar was not glorified in the movie. He just depicted the history. You cannot go back and change it. Don't act and think like the karni sena guys.
