A troll wrote, “Just Imagine if her dad asks that "Hey, What you did?". She will reply "Dad, Today i EMPOWERED my self by masturbation." I mean REALLY? @ReallySwara”

She shut him down saying, “No not really Neha! It’s okay to do something privately and not tell your parents about it. It’s called discretion. Do u describe your morning shit to your parents when they ask you what u did when you woke up? #logic”

Another troll wrote, “Just one question, how masturbating related to empowerment? Who is stopping them from masturbating but in public? I think empowerment doesn't mean that you should mastrubate in public. It's private.”

Swara slammed the troll saying, “Swadeept! 1. Sakshi was in her PRIVATE bedroom.. not public 2. Masturbation is abt owning ur body, sexuality. Empowering. 3. In a culture that largely silences or ignores or shames female sexuality showing a girl gratifying herself in a film in a non judgemental way is empowering”

While EXCLUSIVELY talking to SpotboyE.com, Swara had this to say about the scene that has become a major talking point on Twitter, “I was expecting the shock. But I didn't know that only grannies will be taken to see the film and they all will have a similar reaction. I am very fond of Shashanka Ghosh. So yes, I was nervous. I asked for a closed set. The only thing I told Shashanka was, 'Let's make the scene funny, not vulgar'. So yeah, that 'Wait, 1 minute' (laughs).Remember that?”

Speaking to a leading daily, the Raanjhanaa actor had earlier said, "Our society is very hypocritical when it comes to standards for men and women. It is completely okay for men to do whatever they want. You can show men doing anything on screen. But for women, it becomes ‘oh bold’, ‘oh controversial’, ‘oh shocking.’ So, I knew I would be trolled." "What would you say to trolls who think it is wrong for a woman to masturbate or who chose to slut shame actors who show the act of masturbation on screen. I think it shows their mentality which is narrow-minded and low. In any case, trolling is you hiding behind the anonymity of your Twitter name being abusive or shaming people who you would not meet in life and even if you do, you would take a selfie. So frankly, I don’t have time to think about them," said the actor.
