Though Swara Bhaskar is a huge fan of Shah Rukh Khan and has been waiting to work with him, the actor has turned down an opportunity to be a part of Aanand L Rai's next venture with King Khan.

According to a report in DNA, when the director of Tanu Weds Manu offered Bhaskar the role of Shah Rukh Khan's mother, she turned it down, saying that she would rather play Shah Rukh's romantic interest instead of playing the role of mother, sister or daughter. To Swara’s utter misfortune, she was told that director Aanand L Rai offered her the role of mother as that was the only role left vacant. This led the 29-year-old actor to withdrew her name immediately.

Incidently, Bhaskar came into focus because of meaty roles in Aanand L Rai's films Tanu Weds Manu in 2011 and Raanjhanaa in 2013.

Off late, she is busy with her upcoming release Anaarkali of Aarah, which is being promoted by Karan Johar and Sonam Kapoor. The film, which will release on 24 March will clash with Anushka Sharma's Phillauri. Bhaskar was in the news recently when three scenes from Anaarkali of Aarah had leaked online. Here is the trailer for Anaarkali of Aarah:
