One of Bollywood’s most versatile actor Swara Bhasker, who is set to try her hand at producing films, says she does not want to direct movies as she does not have the skill or vision of a director.
In a recent interview with IANS, Swara revealed why she does not want to direct films and said, “I don’t think I have the skill or vision to be a director. I am very much an actor and I am happy being that… also a producer”.
Swara is making a biopic on Krishna Sen through her production banner Kahaaniwaaley. The film is based on the true story of Krishna Sen alias Sweety Sen. The yet-untitled biopic revolves around a woman who pretended to be a man and married at least two women.
The Anaarkali of Aarah actress said it is one of her most demanding roles. Talking about the same, she said, “Well, I am producing my next film which is inspired from the life of a woman who dressed up as a man and became a man, so that’s my challenging role”.
When asked about what does she find more daunting – acting or producing films, the actor replied by saying, “They both are daunting in different ways. Producing a film will be an exciting challenge”.
Swara walked as a showstopper for designer Prreeti Jaiin Nainutia at LMIFW.
Asked if she is fashion conscious in real life, the Veere Di Wedding actor said, “I am not very fashion conscious but it is something that I have learnt to be careful about because as an actor or someone from showbiz, we would be judged for how we look”.
Earlier this year, the actor launched her production banner with an aim to support filmmakers who have fresh and powerful stories to tell. The critically-acclaimed actor has joined hands with her entrepreneur brother Ishan Bhasker for ‘Kahaaniwaaley’.
