Actor Swara Bhaskar says Prasoon Joshi is one of the finest writers in all of Bollywood

Swara Bhaskar recently appeared in the Amazon Prime Video show Rasbhari. The show has received a positive word of mouth from multiple critics already. Indian Censor Board chief Prasoon Joshi, however, isn't too happy with Swara Bhaskar's recent show. Prasoon Joshi raised his objections against a particular scene where a young girl is seen dancing in front of adults.

 
Initially, Swara responded by politely saying that Joshi perhaps misunderstood the scene. Now in a recent interview with Rajeev Masand Swara Bhaskar has called Prasoon Joshi one of the finest writers in all of Bollywood. The actress said, "I cannot believe Prasoon sir didn’t understand the meaning of the scene. He’s one of our finest writers, he’s given us some of our finest work. I have too much respect and regard for him to believe that he didn’t understand what that scene meant.”
 
"The purpose of the scene is to demonstrate how adults and society sexualize children, and the second thing is how subcontinental parenting we give our girls and boys different values,” she added.
 
Previously Swara had defended the scene saying, "Respected sir, maybe you are misunderstanding the scene. The way you are describing the scene, it is just the opposite. The child is dancing at her own will. Her father feels embarrassed after seeing this. The dance is not provocative. She is simply dancing and has no idea about how society will sexualize her too. This is what the scene shows. #Rashbhari."
 
Rasbhari also stars Ayushmaan Saxena and Neelu Kohli in pivotal roles.
