Urwa Hocane slams Swara Bhaskar with a number of Tweets

Swara Bhaskar is definitely the favourite child of controversies. The lady just doesn’t know how to keep her feeling to herself which has landed her in many troubles in the past. This time Swara faces heat from Pakistani actress Urwa Hocane for calling Pakistan a ‘failing state’.

While Swara is enjoying the success of her just-released film Veere Di Wedding that hit the screens on June 1, Swara had her strong opinions as to why the film was banned in the neighbouring country Pakistan. In a recent interview with CNN News18, film critic Rajeev Masand the actress was asked about the same to which she responded by calling the country a 'failing state'.

"For some reason, I have to keep answering for that. I don't know why people think I'm a spokesperson for the Pakistani government. What do you expect from a state that's run by Sharia Laws?," said Swara.

She further added, "They're a nonsecular state. I'm not surprised at all. Why should we hold up Pakistan, which is a failing state -- I don't understand why we keep taking pleasure and feeling a sense of self-worth from all the silly things that happen in Pakistan. Apologies to all my Pakistani friends right now... Rest assured, Pakistanis have way worse vocabulary than we do. I know."

This definitely didn’t go down well with our neighbours. After hearing this, Pakistani actress Urwa Hocane decided to school her. The actress slammed Swara in a number treats calling her ignorance and flip-flopping statements. Urwa even signed the tweet saying ‘From a phenomenal Pakistan.’ She tweeted-

Adding to Swara’s disadvantage, Twitter went crazy posting pictures from Swara’s visit to Pakistan in 2015. In her interview, Swara expressed her joy about visiting Pakistan and how wonderful she felt there. She even said, “The amount of love we have received here. I have travelled to a lot of places, London, New York, Paris, Istanbul, they are all nothing compared to Lahore.”
