Pakistani actress slams “Veere Di Wedding” star Swara Bhaskar, shares video

New Delhi: Bollywood film “Veere Di Wedding”, starring stars like Kareena Kapoor Khan and Sonam Kapoor in a story of four girls, has been banned in Pakistan because of “vulgar dialogues and obscene scenes”. The movie was screened for the CBFC in Pakistan on Tuesday night. According to trade sources, the movie was deemed unfit for exhibition due to “vulgar dialogues and obscene scenes”.

The Distribution Club also issued withdrawals of their application for the certification after witnessing the criticism from members of the board, reported The Express Tribune.

According to the report published in Jantaka Reporter, after Pakistan banned “Veere Di Wedding”, Swara termed Pakistan a ‘failing state’ and a ‘non-secular’ country.

Reacting to it, Pakistani VJ and actress Urwa Hocane slammed Veere Di Wedding actress Swara Bhaskar and shared videos. In one of the videos, Swara Bhaskar can be heard saying “Pakistan is not like how it is described, an enemy state. I swear, I have been to London, New York, Istanbul, Paris, every city fails in front of Lahore.” whereas, in another video, she is heard terming Pakistan a ‘failing state’ and a ‘non-secular‘ country, run by ‘Sharia Law.’

Urwa Hocane wrote a series of tweets. She wrote, “Pakistan is the country that you @ReallySwara referred to,in 2015, as the “Best country you have ever visited” and it has only gotten better in the last few years in every aspect along with when it comes to having bigger hearts and welcoming our guests. While you’re on this spree of empowering women, i must say you’ve become a bitter person. And all of this is odd coming from a citizen of a state that bans their own films i.e. #Padmavat so let’s not talk about women empowerment. This only reflects on u as an ignorant person who is also quiet contradictory in her own statements. It’s not a failing state for sure but u come across as a “Failing Human Being” !!! @ReallySwara.”

It may be mentioned that “Veere Di Wedding” is co-produced by Rhea Kapoor, Ekta Kapoor and Nikhil Dwivedi. It also stars Swara Bhasker and Shikha Talsania.
