Actor Swara Bhasker replied to a tweet made by lyricist and Censor Board chief Prasoon Joshi in which he criticised the actor’s latest web-series titled Rasbhari. Joshi made a tweet on Friday slamming a scene in which a girl is seen dancing in front of a group of men. Now, Swara replied saying that the scene had a different context that Joshi missed altogether and instead fell for the idea that the particular scene was trying to reject.

Swara’s tweet read, “आदर सहित सर, शायद आप scene ग़लत समझ रहे हैं। सीन जो वर्णन किया है उसके ठीक उल्टा है। बच्ची अपने मर्ज़ी से नाच रही है- पिता देख कर झेंप जाता है & शर्मिंदा होता है।नाच उत्तेजक नहीं है, बच्ची बस नाच रही है, वो नहीं जानती समाज उसे भी sexualise करेगा- scene यही दिखाता है। #Rashbhari” (sic) (Respected sir, it seems like you have completely misunderstood the scene. The scene is totally opposite of how you have described it. The girl is just dancing – that makes her father feel embarassed. The dance is not provocative, the girl is just dancing, she doesn’t know that the society will even sexualise that. That’s what the scene explains) Also Read - Swara Bhasker’s Web Series Rasbhari Full HD Available For Free Download Online on Tamilrockers and Other Torrent Sites

Rasbhari is streaming on Amazon Prime Video and features Swara playing the role of a school teacher named Shanu who has a sex-obsessed alter-ego named Rasbhari. The film talks about a woman’s sexuality and in the flashback, also highlights how a girl is brought up in a patriarchal world that doesn’t allow her equal rights and only prepares her to serve the family after marriage.
