None in India are unaware of the hawkers from Kashmir who go door to door seasonally to sell authentic wares from the Valley including shawls, Pashmina, phiran and Bollywood diva Swara Bhasker is no different when it comes to “guilty” shopping from them. Making heads turn at a media conference in Lucknow recently, Swara raised the hotness quotient donning a Pashmina saree and the fashion police were left smitten.

Taking to her Instagram handle later, Swara shared a couple of pictures featuring her ooze oomph in a pink base six yards of Pashmina with multi-coloured floral prints. Accessorising her look with a pair of long metallic earrings, Swara pulled back her mid-parted hair in a low bun to talk business and rounded it off with a tiny bindi.

Looking ready to kill, Swara addressed the issue of people’s indifference towards over 200 days of “communication lockdown” in Kashmir. Her caption asserted, “CANNOT get over how gorgeous this Kashmiri Kaani weave sari is! Yousuf Bhai from Anantnag in Kashmir roams the big cities of india and visits the houses of his clients and buyers carrying humble bags filled to the brim with the most exquisite weaves and delicate pashminas.. even as his home is in a communication lockdown. Let’s take a moment to ask ourselves why when we enjoy Kashmiri food, Kashmiri spices, Kashmiri textiles, Kashmiri Holidays, Kashmiri kahwa.. why are we so indifferent to Kashmiri people and their lived experiences?!? #wearecomplicit #guiltyshopper (sic).” Also Read - Swara Bhasker's Heartfelt Interview on Breaking up With Himanshu Sharma: Itna Hi Tha Humara Journey
Sassy and glamorous as she is, Swara is always seen in the lap of controversies for being boisterously honest despite the celebrity tag. Not only is she credited for giving us a refreshing scene, now and then, of her celebrity self embracing her imperfections but also her JNU blood that is equally famous for her parallel life as a Twitter activist on social issues and liberal causes.
On the professional front, Swara is gearing up for her upcoming movie, Sheer-Qorma, opposite Divya Dutta. Swara essays the role of Faraz Arif Ansari‘s “gentle and shining Sitara” in Sheer Qorma. Swara had earlier descibed the film as, “A beautiful ode to love, love that binds is all. Notwithstanding gender, race, religion, generation or sexuality” while mentioning “the honour and dream of sharing screen space with the legendary Shabana Azmi and iconic Divya Dutta25.”
Directed by Faraz Arif Ansari, the movie is bankrolled by Marijke Desouza. The trailer is expected on February 25, 2020.
