Swara Bhasker has been at the receiving end ever since she penned down an open letter 'I felt like a vagina' to Sanjay Leela Bhansali after watching Padmaavat. While Bollywood celebrities have criticised the Raanjhanaa actress and termed her as a 'fake feminist', Pink actress Taapsee Pannu, who herself is a feminist like Swara, has also begged to differ with Bhasker's opinion.
"I think everyone has a right to their opinion. I, however, don't agree with Swara. Just because we both are feminists doesn't mean we have the same take," Taapsee was quoted as saying by PTI on the sidelines of the ongoing Lakme Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2018 held in Mumbai.
In her open letter, Swara has accused Bhansali of glorifying the regressive practices of 'sati' and 'jauhar' (self-immolation) and asked him to be responsible as his films are out for public consumption which can influence people's thinking.
However, Taapsee insists that not every film should be seen in the context in which Swara has seen Padmaavat.
"I see films as films. I don't bifurcate too much. Not every film should be seen that way. They were just trying to show what really happened. It's not about what one should do. We should try to distinguish between the two," Taapsee expressed her views while commenting on the jauhar scene in Padmaavat.
Meanwhile, Swara, who has been having a field day on Twitter taking out trolls one after the other, has found support in her Veere Di Wedding co-star Sonam Kapoor, Richa Chadha, Mini Mathur and others.
On the work front, Swara will be next seen in Veere Di Wedding alongside Sonam Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor Khan. Directed by Shashanka Ghosh, the movie is slated to release on June 1. Taapsee, on the other hand, is having several projects in her kitty which includes Dil Juunglee, Mulk, Soorma, Manmarziyaan, and Tadka.
