Veere Di Wedding has been ruling the box office and has been a huge success. The movie which mainly has all-female cast has been doing great and people have completely loved its boldness to tackle unconventional issues. Veere Di Wedding has indeed generated extreme reactions. While some loved the movie for its portrayal of liberated women, others found it very blinkered view on the current status of women. The movie though has been brought under scanner because of the masturbation scene featuring Swara Bhaskar. This has stirred up the controversy clouds!
As a result, Swara’s masturbating scene was censured by a certain section of the internet were of the opinion that it was difficult to watch the film with elders in the theatres since the sequence made the environment slightly uncomfortable.
The scene featured Swara masturbating using a vibrator. Swara Bhaskar’s who has been featured in the masturbating scene was essentially showing the back story of Swara’s character. She was not happy with her marriage and had no chemistry with her husband.
Well, if it would have been a man doing the same scene it would have been perfectly normal and a healthy thing to do. But as it is a woman, which perhaps is a first in Indian cinema, it became a problem.
Swara’s mother Ira Bhaskar and a professor of Cinema Studies Delhi’s Jawaharlal Nehru University also talked about the female desire. The scene typically depicts that there are women who enjoy her performance. She is sexually active. She makes no qualms about what she wants. She wants not to be in a position to be humiliated for being who she is. Her choice is very important. Here are women who are confident of their own sexuality.
