Swara Bhasker’s latest web series has created a furore on social media. The Veere Di Wedding actress is being subjected to online shaming yet again! Amazon Prime just dropped the Rasbhari trailer, a series based on adolescent infatuation, that features Swara as a school teacher.
The actress took to Instagram and shared the trailer with a caption that read, “The ‘hot new teacher’ is a universal memory from our adolescence. Come relive that adolescent infatuation! (sic)”

Swara’s father Uday Bhaskar’s reaction to the teaser didn’t go down well with netizens. He commented, “Bravo! Proud of you for your professional versatility…. small and big screens….”. Reacting to his tweet, Swara wrote, “Papa don’t watch this film when I am around.”Shop ExclusivesSee More

His reaction soon turned into a meme fest. Twitterati started trolling the actress after her father praised her for doing a film that has adult content. Tweets like, “Wow! So the daughter is doing soft porn and the father feels proud!”, “Proud? Can’t understand for what?,” and so on followed.
While a few demanded a ban on such content, others bid goodbye to Amazon subscription over it.
A few even compared her to adult film actress Mia Khalifa, who’s now a sports commentator and a webcam model.
Lyricist Prasoon Joshi objected to Rasbhari
Lyricist and Central Board of Film Certification Chairman Prasoon Joshi also slammed the teaser, saying it’s not right to objectify a young girl. He shared a post on Twitter that read, “Saddened by Web series #Rasbhari’s irresponsible content portraying a little girl child dancing provocatively in front of men drinking. Creators and audiences need to seriously rethink freedom of expression or freedom of exploitation? Let’s spare children in the desperate need for entertainment (sic).”
Swara responded to Prasoon clarifying how he misinterpreted the scene. She wrote, “With respect sir, I think you have misunderstood the scene. It’s exactly the opposite of how you have interpreted it. The child is dancing by her own choice, the father gets awkward and embarrassed about seeing it. The girl is simply dancing. She doesn’t know that society will sexualise her too. That’s all the scene is about (sic).”
We haven’t watched it, so we are yet to figure what exactly the story is all about. But the recent trolling has proved that netizens are in no mood to miss out on an opportunity to criticize Swara.
