Over the weekend, Swara Bhaskar sparked a heated debate on social media with her anti-Pakistan statements in an interview with Rajeev Masand while promoting her movie ‘Veere Di Wedding’.
#Repost @doctorblogger (@get_repost) ・・・ Un FOLLOW her. ❌ ? Thank you so much #swarabhaskar for letting us know this. You are calling our pakistan A failing state ?? Such double standard you got girl you just need to check first what you want to say. Sometime back you in our pakistani television show you were telling about love you have recieved for 'Us'. You should be ashamed Ms. Swara. You were not known by many. And just because of your little fame you show your 'Asliyaat'. #veerediwedding #vdw #rheakapoor #sonamkapoor #sawarabhaskar #swarabhaskar #kareenakapoor #kareenakapoorkhan ✔️ [email protected] @reallyswara @vdwthefilm @rheakapoor #anandahuja @anandahuja #doctorblogger #diaryofanintrovert_
During the interview, she stated that Pakistan is a “failed state” having “no law and order” and where its citizens are being “killed in bomb blasts” every day!
The actress was bashed by both Pakistanis and Indians alike for her stringent remarks against the country and for being inconsiderate towards the sentiments of her Pakistani fans.
Slamming the starlet for her sullen statements, several Pakistani celebrities clapped back at Swara, including Urwa Hocane, Gohar Rasheed, and Mehwish Hayat.
And though it seemed that the storm might have eased off, a tweet posted by an Indian journalist has ignited another wave of fury.
Here’s what the journalist had to say:
As far a career goes, Swara Bhaskar has done better for herself than most Paki women will ever manage. https://t.co/ThAWKJ9RYW

But of course, our celebrities are always game when it comes to giving a fitting reply to haters and supporting our country,
This time, it was none other than the bold and beautiful Ushna Shah who stepped up to shut down the hater.
In an Epic Reply, She Tweeted:
You were rejected by some dude for a Pakistani woman at some point I’m guessing. Better yet, you were rejected BY a Pakistani woman? plenty more of us to love just come down here ?

We Pakistanis have to commend Ushna on her witty reply! Accusers should think twice before messing with us and well, our celebrities have just proved that right.
