In this time of web series, many tabooed things that the Indian society frown upon are being displayed through films and series. After the release of the film Veere de Wedding, actor Swara Bhasker was slammed by haters for a scene which was considered ‘inappropriate.’ In this scene, Swara was seen masturbating and several Indians could not digest the fact that such a bold scene was being shown out in the open. There were a lot of controversies in the scene and many tried to pull her down but Swara, being one of the most strong and bold actors of Bollywood, never failed to give a powerful reply to all her haters. Now, another bold Bollywood actor, Shweta Tripathi, who is starring in the Amazon Prime web series, Mirzapur, makes her appearance in the series through a masturbating scene.

Though we have seen Shweta’s versatility in several films and series, this is for the very first time that the actor took on such a bold scene. Shweta has now joined  Swara Bhasker, Kiara Advani, and Neha Dhupia in breaking the societal taboo and bringing up the topic of women’s sexual desires.

Undoubtedly, Mirzapur has few of the most versatile actors of Bollywood like Gurgaon starrer Pankaj Tripathi, A Death in the Gunj starrer Vikrant Massey, Manto Starrer Rasika Duggal, Pyaar Ka Punchnama starrer Divyendu Sharma, Fukrey starrer Ali Fazal, veteran actor Kulbhushan Kharbanda and Masaan starrer Shweta Tripathi in lead roles. With strong dialogues and scenes, the series is doing pretty good with a lot of fan followers already. Though, if compared with Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s Netflix series Sacred Games, the series had one hooked to the screen right from the very first episode while Mirzapur somehow lacked in that area. Despite that, all the actors did justice to their respective roles and that might be one of the reasons for the audience to love the series.
