Actor Swara Bhasker, who stirred controversy with her open letter to Sanjay Leela Bhansali, in which she said that she felt "reduced to a vagina" after watching Padmaavat, says that she still stands by what she said. "Everything is in my letter. I stand 100 per cent with what I said (sic)," said Bhasker.
The actor's critique of Padmaavat as a movie that glorifies sati and jauhar, sparked a war of words. Celebrities like Suchitra Krishnamoorthi, Vivek Agnihotri and Raveena Tandon slammed her for her comments.
