Bollywood actress Swara Bhaskar is at the receiving end of criticism for using cuss words for a 4-year child. Swara along with comic Kunal Kamra was a guest on Abhish Mathew's chat show, Son of Abish, when she used 'chu**ya and kameena to refer to a child artist. Swara was apparently miffed with the child artist for calling her aunty during an ad shoot. Swara’s act has not just drawn criticism online but could also create legal trouble for the actress.
A complaint against Swara has been filed with National Commission for Protection of Child Rights by a BJP leader. The complainant has accused Swara of physically, mentally harassing the child.
This is ‘humour’? Calling a 4 year old child a ‘Ch*^%a’ a ‘Kameena’? Saying with great confidence that children are ‘evil’? #PanautiJunior is sounding completely deranged here, and that moron @kunalkamra88 is watching like a drunk dodo at this ‘wisdom’. pic.twitter.com/wM7f401tkm— Shefali Vaidya.

In the video from ‘Son of Abish’ that's going viral on the internet, Swara is seen telling an incident from her career’s initial days when she was shooting for a soap ad with a child artist. The actress tells how this 4-year-old child artist was calling her aunty and it only made her angrier
Swara did not say chu**ya and kameena on the child artist's face but uttered only in her thoughts. She added that children are basically 'evil' to which host of the show, Abish Matthew agrees.
The video drew a lot of flak on Twitter and people slammed Swara for abusing child. Soon #Swara_aunty was trending on microblogging site Twitter. In fact, #Swara_aunty was among the top trends on November 5.
Have a look at some of the reaction:
Kids as old as 15-17 years addressed me as Aunty 7 years ago. Today, they are college-going and still call me Aunty. We continue growing and we have to get used to it. #swara_aunty— Sapna Madan / सपना मदान (@sapnamadan) November 5, 2019
