Actress Swara Bhaskar has explored a lot of characters in films such as heroine’s best friend in “Tanu Weds Manu”, a middle-aged mother of a 15-year-old in “Nil Battey Sannata”, a prostitute in “Anaarkali of Aarah” and a buddy in women-centric film “Veere Di Wedding” etc. Actress Swara Bhaskar has explored characters that an image-conscious budding actress would fear to do.
She tells breaking stereotypes is the best way to set her own rules for her acting career.
“I never feared to take a risk. When I came to the film industry, since I had no idea of how to go about it, people gave me a lot of advice on what not to do… I was told not to play any character of a sister or best friend of the protagonist as then people would only offer me second lead. I was told not to play vamp and mother at a young age… Now you know what are the characters I have played in films. I thought if those are the rules to get the lead role, why not break them? Why not get rid of stereotypes to set my own rules?” Swara revealed a media agency in a media chat.
“I think the best way to deal with stereotypes is by taking a risk, by trying new things without fearing the failure,” further added Swara.
