Swara Bhasker  not shaken  by trolls
Mumbai: Whether it is the series of suspiciously identical tweets lashing out at her for doing a sequence of self-pleasuring in Veere Di Wedding or for her contradictory opinions on Pakistan expressed on two different platform, actor Swara Bhasker is getting slammed and she is taking it on her chin as usual.
Speaking on the current troll trail Swara says, "I have no comments for people who are petty, who are hypocritical or who slut-shame. I also have no comments for idiots. Currently I am ignoring these people and feeling very happy with the rest of the team of Veere Di Wedding about the success of the film".
She further added: "A lot of people on social media are speaking up for me and I sincerely want to thank them all for the support".
As far as being trolled for her masturbation sequence in Veere Di Wedding is concerned Swara comments, "I have been targeted by paid trolling in the past and I'm used to it. Many twitter-users and some prominent comedians and commentators have turned the 'I took my Grandmother to watch VDW' into very funny satirical comments on twitter . I'm grateful both for their support and their humour."
About her contradictory opinion on Pakistan Swara clarifies, "I believe there should be a distinction between States/ Governments of a country and the civilians of that country. My regard for and goodwill towards the people of Pakistan remains unchanged. Some of my closest friends are Pakistani. Lahore remains one of my soul cities."
Her last words on trolling are significant.
"I believe the social media is a virtual public place just like restaurants, parks and cinema halls. Just as we expect a decent level of behaviour we must insist on decent and decorum on social media. If we see someone being abused slammed or slut shamed in a public place wouldn't we stand up and defend the person from being attacked".
