Women face more judgment than men says Swara Bhaskar
Bollywood actress Swara Bhaskar, who is mostly targeted by trolls on social media and is known for raising her voice against several social issues, believes that women have to face more judgment than men. Recently, the actress took a time-off from Twitter after facing severe backlash over her comments on Una flogging case. Talking about the hate women face on social media, Swara Bhaskar said, “Since childhood, girls face judgment. Be it about looks or behavior, they are being judged on everything.”
“While getting married, judgmental questions like, ‘How a girl looks like, what’s her skin tone, how is her nature’ are being imposed on our girls for a long time. I am not saying that men are not judged, but women have to face more judgment than them,” the 30-year-old said here.
Swara was promoting the second season of her web show “It’s Not That Simple”.
She believes that the status of women has changed in India, but said there is still a long way to go.
“From a long time, the Hindi phrase ‘Log kya kahenge (what will people say)’ has made our women weak and has suppressed their voice, but now women are breaking all the ceilings and are moving ahead.”
The “Veere Di Wedding” actress had faced flak over a masturbation scene that she did in the film. She says she believed in the role and did it. “While performing any role, an actor should have faith in it. If you don’t have faith in a role, it would be hard to perform it on-screen,” added Swara.
