Looks like controversies related to Padmaavat are
Just when the film hit theatres, Swara Bhaskar ignited a new debate in the industry via her open letter to Sanjay Leela Bhansali, where the actress condemned his idea of glorifying the tradition of Jauhar and Sati.
And now, the latest development in this matter is that Swara’s Veere Di Wedding co-star, Sonam Kapoor has ‘liked’ a tweet, which in Swara’s defence, speaks about a woman’s right to freedom of speech and also slams those who are harassing Swara through nasty tweets.
Sonam Kapoor Liked The Tweet
Although Sonam has not expressed her views on a public platform about the controversy till now, yet she ‘liking’ the tweet suggests that if not take sides (Bhansali or Bhasker), at least the actress supports the idea of Sawara voicing her opinion.
Sonam is one of the actresses who has a strong voice and often stands for right. In this case, clearly the actress is supporting the idea of not oppressing a woman’s voice- be it for positive or negative.
Talking about the controversy, well, Swara has spoken at length justifying her action and giving numerous explanations as to why she penned that letter. However, the lady has received flak from many including filmmaker Vivek Agnihotri, who tagged her as a ‘fake feminist’.
We also told you, how at an event, Swara’s double standard about feminism came in forefront when she refrained from using the word Vagina on family channel.
Later, in the day, Deepika Padukone too had a message to share with the actress, where she said probably Swara missed the disclaimer which is put at the beginning of the film, condemning the act of Jauhar and Sati.
Meanwhile, SpotboyE.com was among the first few ones to express disagreement with Swara, soon after the actress put out her open letter on social media.
Now, let's see when the flame of this controversial topic dies down.
