Swara Bhasker has always been vocal about social issues in the country. She has been part of several protests against the right wing government of India. Recently, in an interview, Swara Bhasker supported and thanked Deepika Padukone for visiting students in Jawaharlal Nehru University in Delhi. The Chhapaak actress faced a backlash after visiting JNU during the release of her film. Swara Bhasker has been the target of several right wing activists. She landed in a controversy due to a 'vulgar' scene in Veere Di Wedding but she was quick to clear the issue.
In the month of December 2019, Delhi police allegedly assaulted students inside the JNU campus. The students were protesting against several issues of JNU. The students union president was assaulted during the incident. This led to protests across the country by several student groups.
Swara Bhasker also went ahead to participate in protests and raised her voice against the ruling government. Swara Bhasker said that she had met Deepika during her trailer launch of Chhapaak. She thanked Deepika on behalf of JNU students. Several students had asked Swara to thank Deepika whenever she meets her. Deepika Padukone reportedly had lost several brand endorsements after visiting JNU. Swara said that brands who have dropped her are foolish as she is one of the leading female actress in the Bollywood industry.
She further said that it would be unwise decision for the brands. This would make the brands look weak and stupid. Swara also said that there are several celebrities who support the protesting groups silently. But they do not openly talk about it. But if Deepika is losing out on brands just due to political opinions then the brands are at loss for dropping a credible actress.
