Swara Bhaskar has said that women should voice their opinions loudly, angrily and shamelessly, because many wrong things happen around them. Swara was speaking at the Femina Women Awards 2017, where she won the Femina Women Editor’s Choice Award for Breakthrough Performance for her role as a singer in Anaarkali of Aarah.
She said, “Women should show anger and stand up for what is right. They should be audacious and loud. I am thankful to Femina to award a character that has these qualities. We need qualities like these because many things are happening around us that are wrong.”
She said she was proud to stand among women who had used anger for their own good. She said, “Women should be angry and be shameless for their own good. I feel privileged to be standing amidst women over here who are using their anger in the right direction.”
The actress was praised for her performance in Anaarkali of Aarah, where she portrayed a village singer who sang erotic songs. “It was a tough character involving politics, crime, history. My role was of a singer who used to sing double meaning songs,” she said.
