Other than her work, Bollywood actress Swara Bhasker also makes it to the headlines for being an absolute nightmare for all her trolls on the internet. Well, we have many such instances to talk about. It is, however, her recent Twitter banter with comedian Kunal Kamra that's taking social media by storm. Only recently, the outrage over a lovemaking scene in Mira Nair's A Suitable Boy was all over the internet, resulting into a section of netizens demanding ban on Netflix. The scene in question was shot inside a temple and that irked a number of people as a consequence of which, #BoycottNetflix was trending on Twitter. Sharing his two cents on the same, Kunal Kamra joked about giving those people another reason to boycott the streaming giant.
Taking to his Twitter, Kunal shared the video of the trailer of Swara Bhasker's upcoming Netflix web show Bhaag Beanie Bhaag and joked how people should again trend #BoycottNetflixIndia. His tweet read, "Another reason for #BoycottNetflixIndia," followed by laughing emoticons. The Veere Di Wedding actress was quick to take notice and give a sporting reply. She tweeted, "Thanks yaa Kamra! Dost hon toh aisey!!!! @NetflixIndia #BhaagBeanieBhaag." LOL! For those unaware, Bhaag Beanie Bhaag sees Swara Bhasker playing a woman who cancels her wedding to pursue her ambitions of becoming a stand-up comedian.
The web series also stars YouTuber Dolly Singh, American actor Ravi Patel and popular stand-up comedian, Varun Thakur.
Check out Swara and Kunal's Twitter banter below:
In a recent interview with SpotboyE, Swara blamed the mainstream media for fuelling hatred. "The mainstream news media today has become the most unreliable and irresponsible source of rabble rousing. When they are called out and their hate and bullying is held accountable they respond with trolling and more hate. But this is the pushback to hate from normal rational citizens. We must hold the media and the government accountable as citizens and as taxpayers," said the actress.
