Swara Bhaskar the blunt and fabulous actress of Bollywood Town has often made headlines for her bold remarks on topics that most actresses refrain from talking. This time around she was guest at the Express Adda where she shared her opinion on Feminism and casting couch.

Swara's recently released film Veere Di Wedding re-defined Feminism in its own way and while speaking on this topic, Bhaskar at the event expressed, "Feminism is a thought that there should be equality among the genders. And equality not just of representation, but equality of opportunity and equality of accountability, which is something that not just women but a lot of communities in India have not had, whether it is caste, whether it is women. For me, feminism is about giving women choice. So if some women choose to be conservative or choose to deny themselves their own rights, what can I say? I think it is completely legitimate to ask those women that why do they want to tie themselves down?".

Narrating her casting couch experience, Swara Bhaskar revealed, "I haven't gotten on the casting couch, I'd put that out right there. My case was kind of weird because I went to Mumbai and I was fully prepared that someone would come and tell me casting couch and tell me that I will have to sleep for this role so I had prepared a small lecture on feminism, sanskaar and all. It was almost 1 and a half years and nobody was asking me anything I was wondering am I so ugly that nobody is asking me? I then realised that people are trying. Nobody is going to say 'excuse me, but you have to have sex for this role' but there are lot of other hints that they are given but I am not taking".

She further continued, "I remember meeting some guy who claimed he was the manager of a big producer. He kept on asking me about my residential details." The conversation carried on for a bit around that topic and Swara was trying hard to escape that meeting. When I got out this guy actually tried to kiss my ear and said 'I love you Baby' and I kind of did that (gesturing to go back) so he got a mouthful of my hair. So that kind of stuff happens. It's all a part of casting couch, right? I have had those experiences".
