Actor Swara Bhasker slammed all her haters and showed boldness once again. Ever since Veere Di Wedding has released, her masturbation scene has been one of the most talked about points from the film. From movies like Anaarkali of Aarah to Veere Di Wedding, Swara has never failed to disappoint the audience except for a few who considers her acting “unacceptable” and “cheap.” Also Read - Swara Bhasker Gives Back to Ashoke Pandit After Latter Tries to Troll Her: 'Aapki Umra me ye Shobha Nahi Deta'
In her latest film, there is a scene where Swara is seen using a vibrator. While there were many in the audience who appreciated this scene but a section of the audience considered this and many other scenes in the film “inappropriate.” One of the key reasons for this scene not being appreciated is because till date an orgasm scene has not been displayed in the Indian industry so boldly.

Swara Bhaskar’s mother, Ira Bhasker, a film historian with a Ph.D. from the Tish School of Arts, a professor of Cinema Studies at Jawaharlal Nehru University talked about Swara’s scene in the film and more but does not particularly comment on that scene. When asked about her views on female sexuality or any such acts depicted on screen, she replied saying, “A lot of things that can’t be addressed directly can be addressed through the song. Be it the Hindi film song, or the Bengali film song. Malayalam or Tamil. You don’t find this anywhere else—as a fundamental and defining feature of the form itself. A lot of the articulation was done through song. Emotional articulation. Articulation of what is tabooed. Sexuality and eroticism.” Also Read - Exclusive: On Swara Bhasker's Birthday, Director Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari Talks About Her 'Gutsy' Friend
She also stated a few examples and went on to say, “Just think of ‘Mughal-e-Azam’: in that song ‘Jogan Ban Chali’, that word ‘jogan’ actually is Meera—the one who has renounced the world for her lover. So this completes dedication to the object of your passion. What is that but female desire? These films didn’t have direct representation of sexual act or the act of lovemaking. Mahesh Bhatt has said that the most erotic sequence in Indian cinema is that of Dilip Kumar stroking Madhubala’s face in close up in ‘Mughal-e-Azam’.”
