Swara Bhasker is known to speak her mind, but this time around, she found herself facing severe backlash after doing so. Social media hasn't taken kindly to her referring to a four-year-old boy by some unsavoury names on a chat show. 

A video of her using swear words for a child actor she once worked with has gone viral on the internet. The incident took place several years ago when Swara had just started out in the industry and had got a stint in an advertisement.

Apparently, the child actor called Swara "aunty", which upset the Veere Di Wedding actress. In the video clip, the actress can be seen speaking about how disappointed she was with the shoot, adding that the kid calling her "aunty" made her angrier.

Swara claimed she didn't say the word "chu**ya" to the kid's face, but she did utter it in her mind. The actress also added that she thought children were evil.

Soon as the clip went viral, social media started slamming Swara Bhasker over her use of words for a child. The hashtag #SwaraAunty, too, started trending on Twitter. Here's what some netizens tweeted:



According to ibtimes, an NGO - Legal Rights Protection Forum - has reportedly filed a complaint to National Commission for Protection of Child Rights, and demanded action against Swara.
