Rhea Kapoor’s ‘Veere Di Wedding’ released three years ago on this day. The film starred Kareena Kapoor Khan, Sonam Kapoor Ahuja, Swara Bhasker and Shikha Talsania in lead roles and was directed by Shashanka Ghosh. As the movie clocked 3 years of it’s release, Swara Bhasker, who is known for her outspoken personality took a jibe at trolls on social media. The actress penned a note on social media that says, ‘3 YEARS (June 01) to the birth of an obsession – my nafrati chintus obsession with my fingers! Happy 3rd to the film that gave rise to an economy: the two rupees per tweet employment guarantee scheme that it seems i launched for my trolls. #veerediwedding #sakshislays SO grateful to have been a part of this bomb piece of badassery that only some amazing women, and very cool elevated men could have made!’ For the unversed, after the release of the movie, Swara’s masturbation scene became the talking point of the nation. The actress was massively trolled for the same. However, Swara defended her film like a boss. Talking about the same, she had told PTI, ‘I expected to be trolled for this. There is an inherent shock value to the scene. There are people in our society who slut shame. I am quite open about things, give my opinion on political issues, so people will not leave any opportunity to attack me but the film is much more than the masturbation scene.’ Swara also revealed that she agreed to do the scene on one condition that it should not look vulgar. She said, ‘I trusted the writers and their intentions. I only wanted the scene to look comic and not vulgar. I told Shashanka Ghosh (director) ‘let’s go over the top as it will shock people into laughter.’
