From Tanu Weds Manu to Anaarkali Of Aarah, Swara Bhaskar is known for her critically acclaimed performances. But the actress said that she still feels like an outsider in Bollywood as it is difficult to make a mark in the industry.
“It is not easy for anyone to make a mark in this industry. I struggle each day to do the work that I am doing. It is extremely difficult, as difficult as it could be in any profession. I don’t think I have still made a mark for myself. I still look at myself like as an outsider. I like it that way. Getting a good role is a tough job,” Swara said.
Even though her acting skills have received positive reviews, Swara believes that commercial success is as important as critical acclaim.
“It is very important for me because it’s very important for the producers to back great films. Box office success in a way encourages good content and good cinema,” she said.
Swara’s last two films– Nil Battey Sannata and Anaarkali Of Aarah– were women-centric projects and the actress said that such films are not a trend but a big change which the Indian film industry is witnessing.
“The number of women oriented films have increased and this is not only by smaller production houses. Even the big ones have taken this a level up. We have a superstar like Amitabh Bachchan ji doing Pink and Piku, we also have someone like me doing Anaarkali of Aarah. It is definitely changing. I think it’s a change and not a trend,” Swara said.
