'I will never pick a role just because its glamorous'

Mumbai: She may be playing an ultra-glamorous role in her upcoming movie Veere Di Wedding, but Swara says she will not compromise on the content of the film even if she is choosing an out-and-out commercial project.
Working in critically-acclaimed projects like Nil Battey Sannata and Anaarkali of Aarah have made her aware of the fact that she needs to pick performance-oriented characters, she believes.
"I have a body of work that justifies that I should have something fairly substantial to do," she said.
The actor believes that filmmakers tend to stereotype her because of her previous films, but producer Rhea Kapoor believed in her and offered the role of Sakshi to her.
"I have done more desi characters and so people assume 'she can do only this'. Kudos to Rhea's vision. It shows she has an imagination", she said.
The trailer of Veere di Wedding has got mixed response as some sections of the audience have criticised the language of the film.
She said she is unable to understand why people have a problem with language of the film.
"You will never ask Anurag Kashyap why his films show men mouthing so many abuses. But when heroines like us are suddenly seen smoking and drinking, everyone's morality is threatened," she said. Veere Di Wedding will release
on June 1.
