Swara Bhasker’s open letter to Sanjay Leela Bhansali over
the glorification of Sati and Jauhar in Padmaavat has received mixed reactions.
While some have applauded the actress for pointing the fact out, several
others have lashed out terming her a “fake feminist”.
Team Padmaavat too lambasted the actress for blowing feminism out of context and accused her for being the biggest road-block in the path of ‘feminism’.
Now, director Vivek Agnihotri has expressed his disappointment over Swara’s thoughts on the film. In a strongly-worded tweet he wrote, “We have interviewed many ‘ex-naxal’ women in Bastar. Each has gut-wrenching stories to tell, full of abuse, rape and misogyny. If they marry, they aren’t allowed to have children. I think fake feminist @ReallySwara must make a trip to understand how the Real Vagina feels like.”

One would assume that Swara would reply with an equally impactful instance or have a solid argument in place. However, she ended up misinterpreting the point Vivek was trying to make.
He wrote, “I’m sorry did u just suggest that i go get myself raped?????????? Like seriously? You typed out this tweet Vivek... ????? I’d say pretty low and sick even by your own abysmal standards of conduct & civility.
Swara Bhasker's Tweet To Vivek Agnihotri
Swara, when did Mr Agnihotri insinuate that you get raped? He only asked you to visit women in Bastar to understand their plight.
Was it that difficult to understand?
Some time ago, Vivek responded to Swara and wrote, “Why is it that whenever we talk about empathy and understanding, fake feminists like @ReallySwara can only think of rape? You can say whatever you want, they end up translating it only with their sexually perverted dictionary.”
