swara bhaskar

Veere Di Wedding might be minting massive moolah at the Bollywood box-office. However, the flick has ignited a wave of backlash from Pakistan.

In an interview, one of the ‘veeres’, Swara Bhasker, said some strong statements about Pakistan.

Speaking to  Rajeev Masand of News 18 on June 2, the actress labeled Pakistan a “failing state”:

“I don’t understand why we keep taking pleasure from all the silly things that happen in Pakistan”. The lady also went ahead to claim that Pakistani’s have a “way worse vocabulary than we do”.

Needless to say, her comments not only left a bad taste in the mouth for Pakistani’s who had been excitedly waiting for the the film, but has also created a social media storm!

In response to Swara’s statements, several Pakistani celebrities came out in support of our country.

Bashing the B-town celeb for her choice of words, Urwa Hocane posted several messages for the actor, calling her out for her contradictory statements.

Actor Gohar Rasheed too had a few things to say to the Bollywood actress:

Armeena Rana Khan was seen sharing some advice for the actress:

Promoting unity, here’s what Mehwish Hayat had to say in response to Swara’s tweet!

In the face of all this backlash, it was only a matter of time that Swara would respond and respond she did!

Here’s what the ‘Veere Di Wedding’ actress had to say in her “defense”. 

And that’s not all the ‘Tanu Weds Manu’ actress had to say!

Sharing a post on her Instagram, she added that “Indo-Pak peace is on the horizon”.

And when that didn’t help in soothing the matters, she ended the “debate” by posting that her love for Pakistan remains unchanged. 

Really Swara? We get that to promote a film, one does tend to be a bit controversial – however, this time, it seems that her statements struck a wrong chord with her audience.
