The actress in a recent interview said that she has been featured in various Blockbuster films but she did not get enough work.


Swara Bhasker speaking about her career and films said, “I’ve chosen consciously to put at risk the thing that is most dear to me, and that is my work. And the cost has been huge and it’s been personal and emotional in the sense that I don’t get to do the thing that I love doing, which is acting. I don’t get to do it enough.”

She further said, “I’m a far better actor and a far more competent, and effective actor than the opportunities that come my way. I have a far better track record in terms of my career. I’ve been part of six or seven blockbuster films and like a whole bunch of web series [and] shows, led them. I’ve never had bad reviews pretty much. There shouldn’t be a reason for me to feel like I don’t get enough work but clearly, I don’t.”

Choose to speak out against the power
