The actress was recently seen on the Web chat show Son of Abish along with Comedian Kunal Kamra. Both the guests are well known for stirring up political controversies and yet again Swara landed herself in a fresh controversy after the interview.
Talking to comedians Abish Mathew and Kunal Kamra on the show, Swara said she had miffed with the fact that the child had addressed her as ‘aunty’ when she had just begun her career. In the video clip, the actress says she had disappointed with the shoot, adding that the kid calling her “aunty” only made her angrier. According to the actress, she did not say the word “chu**ya” on the child actor’s face but uttered it in her thoughts. She added that children were basically “evil”, and that she had to bathe the “menace” as part of the soap ad.
According to ibtimes, an NGO, Legal Rights Protection Forum, has reportedly filed a complaint to the National Commission for Protection of Child Rights and demanded action against Swara. Twitterati also started slamming the actress no sooner that the video went viral, and the hashtag #Swara_aunty was trending on the micro-blogging site.
