Swara Bhaskar can’t even upload a picture of a flower without linking it to m*sturbation scene from ‘Veere Di Wedding.’
Swara Bhasker said that the kind of comments she gets online amount to online bullying and cyber sexual harassment.
Swara Bhasker lately opened up concerning the nasty feedback she gets on all of her posts on social media. Following the Twitter Spaces chat, she opened up that she can’t even post a photo of a flower without people linking it to her masturbation scene in Veere Di Wedding.
Swara took to Instagram to share an excerpt from her Twitter Spaces conversation. “Social media is a [virtual] public space like roads & restaurants are, but the public decency and basic social etiquette maintained offline are absent online. I can’t even post a photo of a flower without people linking it to masturbation or referencing ‘ungli’ (finger) after Veere Di Wedding came out.”
“It’s ugly and amounts to cyber sexual harassment but I feel very strongly about not succumbing to online bullying or limiting my presence online because of it. We cannot cede the virtual public space to hate, bigotry and bullying,” she added. She captioned her post, “Speak your truth. Stand your ground.”

Swara will be seen next in a short film titled Sheer Qorma, in which she stars alongside Divya Dutta and Shabana Azmi. The same-sex love story, directed by Faraz Arif Ansari, has been screened at several film festivals globally but is yet to be released in India.
