Having won critical acclaim for her role in Avinash Das’ ‘Anaarkali of Aarah’, one would think Swara Bhaskar is flying high in the film industry. However, her reality is quite the contrary.
Talking about how she feels about her place in the industry, Hindustan Times reported Bhaskar stating, “It is not easy for anyone to make a mark in this industry. I struggle each day to do the work that I am doing. It is extremely difficult, as difficult as it could be in any profession. I don’t think I have still made a mark for myself. I still look at myself like as an outsider. I like it that way. Getting a good role is a tough job.”
She went on to add how she feels both critical and commercial success are equally important. “It is very important for me because it’s very important for the producers to back great films. Box office success in a way encourages good content, good cinema.”
Being applauded for her roles as a powerful women, in both ‘Anaarkali of Aarah’ (2017) and Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari’s ‘Nil Battey Sannata’ (2015), Bhaskar also spoke about how the genre of women-centric roles has grown. “The number of women oriented films have increased and this is not only by smaller production houses, even the big ones have taken this a level up. Where as we have a superstar like Amitabh Bachchan Ji doing ‘Pink (2016)’ and ‘Piku’ (2015), we also have someone like me doing ‘Anaarkali of Aarah’.”
