Swara Bhaskar who is known for her fabulous acting performances in Raanjhana, Nil Battey Sannata, Anaarkali of Aarah and Listen...Amaya, feels that a woman should be angry and shameless for her own good. The actress was awarded The Femina Women Editor’s Choice Award for her breakthrough performance in Films earlier this week at the Femina Women Awards 2017. She received the award for Anaarkali of Aarah, according to a statement.
"Women should show anger and stand up for what is right. They should be audacious and loud. I am thankful to Femina to award a character that has these qualities. We need qualities like these because many things are happening around us that are wrong," Swara said in a statement.
She added: "Qualities like anger and being loud are what got us freedom. Women should be angry and be shameless for their own good. I feel privileged to be standing amidst women over here who are using their anger in the right direction."
Swara was lauded for her role as a village dancer in the film "Anaarkali of Aarah". Talking about the role, the 29-year-old said: "It was a tough character involving politics, crime, history. My role was of a singer who used to sing double meaning songs."
