Swara on night of the attack in the campus, took to her social media and shared a video, requesting all to gather in front of JNU and take help of their social media to ask the government and the police to take actions against the violence that the students of JNU were facing. Subjecting to this video Raaj Tweeted,
“Swara Bhasker’ se mehenga ‘Dainik Bhasker’ bikta hai (Don’t pay attention to cheap things, Dainik Bhaskar sells more than Swara Bhasker).”
Swara Bhasker taking a screenshot of his posts gave the director a befitting reply on her Twitter, she wrote,
“Be mindful of your despicable acts as well when you come to offer a role next time or send messages requesting to share your film’s trailer.”
यदि??? ‘सस्ती, बिकाऊ’ ऐसी ओछि बातों पर एक normal शालीन इंसान को आपत्ति ही होगी! और sir बोलने और type करने से पहले आप नहीं सोच रहे! हम तो विचारधारा और तर्क पर विरोध करते हैं- personal आप हो रहे हैं। और आप या मैं किसी के actor या नागरिक भी होने पर किस हक़ से आपत्ति जता सकते हैं? 🙂 https://t.co/yHN7xJcfDj
Swara’s reply made the director soon delete his posts, and he didn’t waste any time and apologized to the actress. Raaj wrote, “If you did not like my statement, I would like to apolgise wholeheartedly. But there is a request, you should also think before you speak anything about anyone, whether it is about the country, people or a specific person. And talking about myself, I will definitely offer you a role next time as I have no objections to you being an actor.
मेरी बात से यदि आपको ठीक नहीं लगी तो दिल से माफ़ी लेकिन एक गुज़ारिश आपसे भी है की आप भी किसीके बारे में कुछ बोलने से पहले सोचा करें चाहे वो देश हो लोग हों या फिर कोई व्यक्ति विशेष…रही बात मेरी तो अगली बार role ऑफर ज़रूर करूँगा क्यूंकि मुझे आपके एक्टर होने पे कोई आपत्ति नहीं… https://t.co/ml95Y0bVPY
