Vere Di Wedding that released on June 1 is having a good run at the box office. The film starring Sonam Kapoor, Kareena Kapoor, Shikha Talsania and Swara Bhaskar is getting praise and criticism in equal amounts.

Out of the four leads, Swara has become the talking point in most of the conversation around Veere Di Wedding. First a lady’s two-minute video went viral where she makes a funny observation about Swara playing a rich character in the film, and now a special tweet has come her way.

Interestingly, the identical tweet has been posted by many handles. Twitter users like Joydas and Rahul Pandita pointed the similarity in tweets, and then came Swara’s savage reply.

While quoting Pandita’s tweet, she wrote, “Looks like a certain IT cell sponsored the tickets- or definitely the tweets!”

Swara was trolled when she spoke about the Kathua rape in April, earlier this year. She had said, “I am Hindustan. I am Ashamed. #JusticeForOurChild #JusticeForAasifa. 8 years old. Gangraped. Murdered. In ‘Devi’-sthaan temple. #Kathua and lest we forget #unnao Shame on us! #BreakTheSilence #EndTheComplicity #ActNow.”

She spoke about trolling in an earlier interview with the Hindustan Times. She had said, “That’s why you see Twitter timelines of a lot of people, including me, resemble those streets where men are passing comments at women. So, what happens to me when I walk down the road — chherkhani or eve teasing — is exactly what happens to me on my Twitter timeline, too.”
