Swara Bhasker hits back at trolls using her Veere Di Wedding scene for vote campaign amid polling
Swara Bhasker was recently trolled by two individuals who were photographed holding a placard that read, "This election, don't be like Swara Bhasker. Use your finger well. Vote well." The message on the poster referred to a scene in Veere Di Wedding where Swara's character was filmed in an intimate setting. The film, a coming-of-age story, chronicled the lives of four friends who deal with the trials and tribulations regarding family acceptance, marriage and societal pressure in the modern day world.
Bhasker, who has been attacked for the particular scene in the past as well, called out the trolls for their misogynistic message:
Awwwwwww!!!!! My trolls are hard at work again, sweating it out in the heat to popularise my name.. You guys are SO dedicated & sweet!!! ❣️❣️❣️❣️ Don’t mind the slut-shaming guys.. their imagination is a bit limited.. but loving the effort you two pic.twitter.com/fRqjGZ3b0q

However, many Twitter users spoke out in her support.
I am stunned at these so-called educated looking people. One is a woman herself! Sure, please oppose @ReallySwara in a civil manner if you disagree with her views but what is this utter nonsense??? https://t.co/0yBygFcPBR
