Actor Swara Bhasker has been vocal about politics, often sharing her views on social media. Ahead of the first phase of the general elections she flew to Patna on 9 April (also her birthday), to lend support to CPI candidate Kanhaiya Kumar by campaigning for him in Bihar’s Begusarai district. On Wednesday too, the actor took to Instagram to share stories of her day at Begusarai.
She said that wanted to be by Kumar’s side when he files his nomination papers for the Begusarai Lok Sabha seat. Swara said in a statement,
“It is a rather unusual way of spending one’s birthday. But Kanhaiya is a friend and I think he is fighting an important battle on behalf of us all. If he wins, it will be a victory for Indian democracy.”Swara Bhasker on campaigning for Kanhaiya Kumar
“I've never been part of a political campaign before so I literally have no idea what to expect,” she added.
She explained that she felt aligned to Kanhaiya Kumar’s views as they were based on “issues that concern all Indians”. She said,
“Kanhaiya raises issues that concern all Indians – issues like the threat to the Constitutional values and to the Constitution of India, unemployment, the rise of mob violence, the need for social justice and the need to focus on issues that will better the lives of all Indians. I think as responsible and patriotic Indians we should all feel aligned to this ideology/or thought process.”Swara Bhasker
Swara Bhasker was last seen in 2018’s Veere Di Wedding. She recently launched her own production house, called Kahaaniwaaley, with her brother Ishan.
