I don't have money to get married: Swara Bhaskar
Posted on: 04:27 PM IST Sep 21, 2013
New Delhi: The success of Swara Bhaskar's last release 'Ranjhanaa' has definitely changed her life as the actress feels that she gets no time for personal commitments.
The 30-year-old actress, who is shooting two films 'Machhli Jal Ki Rani Hai' and 'Mango', said because of her back-to-back projects she has no time to think about marriage.
"I am committed with somebody but I don't have time to think about marriage right now because I am busy shooting films. Apart from time, I don't have money also to get married," Swara said today on the sidelines of Cine Bahas
The 'Tanu Weds Manu' actress addressed a session on the 'Role of women in Hindi Cinema' along with other panelists including Shilpa Shukla, Usha Jadhav and Vishaka Singh.
Swara feels that the portrayal of women on-screen has remained the same since the silent period of Bollywood.
"Bollywood is an integral phenomena when we think about role of women. Right from the silent era, actresses like Sulochana Devi and Fearless Nadia have defined women in cinema.
"Women-centric films, female directors and technicians have always existed in the industry. So, we can say that the space we female actors are today is not that new," she said.
Swara said that the only thing which has changed for actresses in the industry is that their male counterparts are equally working hard to sustain their position.
"If actresses like Kareena Kapoor, Deepika Padukone are working hard to get the size zero for their upcoming project then actors like Shah Rukh Khan and Aamir are also struggling to get the eight-pack abs for their next film," she said.
The actress also pointed out that the confidence about portraying sexuality on-screen has also increased and a film like 'The Dirty Picture' is the best example.
