Our guest on's Womens Day special, Swara Bhasker opens up about being constantly trolled for putting out her opinion on raging issues, taking up roles that were rejected by other actors, why women should let go of guilt and shame, and much more. 

Speaking about her choice of films from the big glamorous ones to what were considered small films back then, 'Nil Battey Sannata' and 'Anarkali of Aarah' she says, “I always joke and say my filmography is made up of roles rejected by everybody else. It’s interesting because even my big budget roles were ones that nobody did. In 'Raanjhanaa,' I was the last person to be cast because they had a sudden last minute cancellation and the actor who was to do it from out. For Prem Ratan Dhan Paayo, no actress wanted to play Salman’s sister, that’s how they reached out to me. Even for 'Veere Di Wedding,' Rhea (Kapoor) was wondering who to cast and I convinced her to give it to me. Somebody told me 'Nil Battey Sannata' is career suicide but it remains the most special film of my career, it gave me my identity. Even for 'Anarkali of Aarah,' the director came to me after two and half years after going to everybody else. So I don’t even worry and a lot of that comes from, I don’t believe figures should be the operating factor when you choose work.”
