I never feared taking risk: Swara

Actress swara bhaskar, who was recently trolled for a scene in Veere di Wedding, believes in breaking stereotypes. She said, “When I came to the film industry, people advised me not to play the sister or best friend of the protagonist as I would only be offered second leads. I was told not to play vamp and mother at a young age. Now you know what are the characters I have played in films. I thought if those are the rules to get the lead role, why not break them? 

‘It is a new experience and I am getting to learn something new everyday. Bollywood, no doubt has a wider acclaim and it feels top of the world to see people from all around the world dancing to my songs. It’s a good phase for the Hindi music industry with the rise of independent singles too.’

—Guru Randhawa

To make sure that the dress didn’t wear her down, the stylists stitched the dress on Nora right before the shoot. Talking about the whole experience, she says, “This would be one of my all time favourite looks!”
