 Swara Bhaskar Personal Quotes

“Mumbai is a spider web. You do a film and make 10 connections and do something else and make 10 more connections. You keep moving like that.”

“Frankly, Indian women inherit this collective cultural unconscious – this sense of guilt, shame, and dishonor. I think Indian girls need to become shameless and a little selfish, too.

“I was an avid ‘Chitrahaar’ and ‘Superhit Muqqabala’ watcher. We did not have cable TV for a long time, so that was my only source of entertainment growing up. My great fantasy was to be in ‘Chitrahaar!”

“When I grew up, I realised what an amazing thing my parents did. It was such a big deal for my mom, a middle class woman, to decide to leave her children and husband to go and do her Ph.D. for three years. And my dad, who is even more middle class, a traditional South Indian, to let his wife do that.”

“I have become a little more cynical and, I would like to believe, a little wiser. When I first came to Mumbai, I was very idealistic. Now I can look anyone in the face and tell a lie. But I’m in a good place.”
