    Swara Bhaskar Shut Down People Who Had Problems With Her Using The Word "Vagina" In A Headline

    Vagina, vagina, vagina, vagina.

    After months of fighting for the right to release, Padmaavat came out this weekend, much to everyone's relief.


    Though everyone knew that the movie would end with Deepika Padukone's character committing "jauhar", what they didn't expect was the outright glorification of it.


    Even Swara Bhaskar was enraged by the ending and wrote an opinion piece about it for the Wire.

    While most applauded her decision to stand up for what's right, while also upholding everyone's right to express themselves...

    ...many have slammed her for contesting history and how the "sacrifice" of Rajput women was also a "feminist choice".

    One of these critics was '90s actress Suchitra Krishnamoorthi.

    She was referring to Swara's role as Anarkali in Anarkali of Aarah.

    Sick of the trolling and realising that most people were missing the point that was being made, Swara tweeted this in response.

    Thank you, Swara, for being the hero that the world desperately needs right now.
