Just when we thought director Sanjay Leela Bhansali would finally breathe a sigh of relief after the release of his controversial historical drama, ‘Padmaavat’, Swara Bhaskar, an actress known for her outspoken thoughts and controversial characters on-screen, has grabbed the limelight by writing an open letter to the director.

She wrote an open letter in The Wire  after watching the Deepika Padukone-starrer film and in her long essay, she complained:

“That’s what I felt like at the end of your magnum opus. I felt like a vagina. I felt reduced to a vagina-only.”

 

While being  hopeful that Bhansali would offer “some sort of a critique” of Sati and Jauhar in the film, she stressed that she’s aware that the film is based in 13th century when they were a part of our society. However she rebuked her own comment by saying:

“Practices like Sati, Jauhar, FGM, Honour Killings should not be glorified because they don’t merely deny women equality, they deny women personhood. They deny women humanity. They deny women the right to life.”

She also went on to give a reference of the Nirbhaya case by saying:

“The context of your film is India in the 21st century; where five years ago, a girl was gang-raped brutally in the country’s capital inside a moving bus.”

Her comments didn’t go down very well with Twitter and caused a flurry of comments. Take a look at some of them:

Will Sanjay Leela Bhansali give a reply to Swara Bhaskar? We will have to wait and see!
