Swara Bhasker is getting mercilessly trolled by women social media users who feel her statement; "I felt reduced to a vagina" referring to Bhansali depicting 'Jauhar' and 'Sati pratha' in Padmaavat, was in extremely bad taste.
Women have taken to social media to express their disgust and shock at Swara’s “badly worded” attempt at “fake feminism.” From being “super saddened” by the actress’ statement to insinuating that she “left her brains at home while watching the movie,” Swara is at the receiving end of women’s wrath.
This woman feels Swara’s open letter makes “no sense” and that possibly she “just discovered the word “vagina’” and wanted to rant.
What an awfully written article ! From the choice of words to the actual message @ReallySwara is trying to project - it literally makes no sense.— Neetal Parekh (@neetal4u) January 28, 2018
She has clearly just discovered the word “vagina’ and had a rant. #GoBackToSleep mate.#Padmavat #SanjayLeelaBhansali https://t.co/wo8FnuOmXP
Another woman on Twitter thinks that Swara’s views “belittle the entire women community!”
Super saddened to read your views about #Padmaavat! And more surprised as you know the movie craft yourself!— Priyanka Shukla (@Starseed_Me) January 28, 2018
A difference of opinion is one thing but with your views you’ve belittled the entire women community!
Can we say some ‘jealousy in the air for #SwaraBhaskar?’
This tweet mocks Swara and says the actress “left her brains at home.”
“What the hell,” is another outraged reaction on Twitter.
This one says, “Game of Thrones also “glorifies” violence, incest, misogyny, rape etc. Why do we expect Indian filmmakers to churn out morality lessons all the time?” Valid observation, we feel.
I don’t agree with Swara Bhaskar’s sentiment in her open letter. I mean, Game of Thrones also “glorifies” violence, incest, misogyny, rape etc. Why do we expect Indian filmmakers to churn out morality lessons all the time?— Ishita Yadav (@IshitaYadav) January 28, 2018
Ouch! Burn. Swara, here’s a question for you...
“You can feel like a vagina for the rest of your life,” screams another post.

You can feel like a Vagina for rest of your Life #SwaraBhaskar xx
Here, this lady feels Swara is being a “pseudo feminist.”
Hope pseudo feminists start thinking from brains rather than vaginas. Existence and description of a woman is not restricted up to vagina #SwaraBhaskar— richa pandey (@richabpl) January 28, 2018
Another one accuses her of “fake feminism”
#fakefeminism is trying to be bold enough to oppose customs of 13th century which no longer exist but cowardly burrying your head in the sand when it comes to current day issues such as triple talak, purdah, self flagellation.. #quickfame #SwaraBhaskar— Bhairavi Soni (@sonibhairavi) January 29, 2018
Here’s a valid question though...
So according to you being sex slave by force for life is acceptable than ending your life by your own choice??#SwaraBhaskar— Aishwarya Bhandari (@iAsh_05) January 30, 2018
