Actor Swara Bhaskar, who made a mark in Bollywood with films such as Tanu Weds Manu (2011), says surely albeit slowly, talent gets recognised in the industry.

"One thing that I truly love about our industry is that talent gets its due recognition. It may take time, but if you are talented you’ll be get your due," says the Aurangzeb (2013) actor.

Ask her about that one thing she doesn’t like about Bollywood, the Delhi-born actor says, "Dislike is a strong word," she pauses and adds, "People tend to typecast you. Then there’s no second chance. Bollywood won’t give you a second chance, unless you are really lucky."

ny personal experiences? "Well, they typecast you in terms of work, as in they offer you similar kind of roles. However, as an actor you’d want to do different roles and would like to offer a variety to your audience," says Swara, who is currently shooting for her next, which also stars actors Salman Khan and Sonam Kapoor.

"Yes, I am getting to work with amazing actors like Salman Khan and Sonam Kapoor. Sonam is a friend, we have worked together before," says the Raanjhanaa (2013) actor, who will be playing Salman’s sister in Sooraj Barjatya's Prem Ratan Dhan Payo.

Sawara is mighty impressed by Salman’s humble attitude. "A star of his stature is so cooperative and sincere on the sets. He is such a big star, but he would still stand behind the cameras to give cue to other actors. And, he is so thoughtful, he gets this big lunch from home and we all get to eat with him. He is amazing ," says the actor.
