“I don’t think Swara gets her due. Last year, ‘Nil Battey Sannata’ was one of the most amazing films and her performance was outstanding. If you see these films, you will understand what a true feminist means…someone who fights for her rights. She is an incredible artiste,” Sonam said at the unveiling of the wine brand Chandon’s “The party starter” anthem on Thursday.
Asked about the edited intimate scenes of the Swara-starrer “Anaarkali of Aarah” which leaked online, Sonam said: “I had the opportunity to watch the film and I cried a lot while watching it. I was so moved by her performance and the story of Anaarkali.”
Swara and Sonam will share the screen space again in another film titled “Veere Di Wedding”.
On the occasion of International Women’s Day (March 8), Sonam also gave out a message for women. “To be empowered and being yourself are important for every human being,” she said.
