Swara Bhaskar has been trolled on social media after moviegoers commented on her masturbation scene ‘Veere Di Wedding’ and called her a hypocrite for comments about Pakistan.
She was cited in Deccan Chronicle saying, “I have no comments for people who are petty, hypocritical, or those who slut-shame. I also have no comments for idiots. I am currently ignoring these people and feeling very happy, like the rest of the Veere Di Wedding team, about the success of the film. A lot of people are sticking up for me on social media, and I sincerely want to thank all of them for their support.”
She added, “I believe that social media is a virtual public place, like a restaurant, park or cinema hall. Just as we expect certain behaviour in public, we must insist on decency and decorum on social media. If we saw someone being abused, slammed, or slut-shamed in a public place, wouldn’t we stand up and defend the person being attacked? Likewise, we must stand up and protect people on social media from indecent, uncivilized attacks. I engage in debates and arguments with trolls so that that precious public space isn’t taken over by bullies and perverts.”
‘Veere Di Wedding’ has got off to a flying start at the box office.
