Swara Bhasker knows she has a real life veere in Sonam Kapoor Ahuja. The actresses have been friends ever since they first met on the sets of Raanjhanaa. It was Sonam who alerted Swara about a role in Veere Di Wedding which was being produced by Sonam’s younger sister Rhea Kapoor. “I trust her sense of stories,” said Bhasker.
Asserting that wielding the directorial baton is an idea she has been toying with for a while, Kapoor says, “I have a couple of stories written for Swara Bhasker. As colleagues, we interact a lot, and so, it’s easy for me to envision her in different roles. I am sure whenever the project rolls, it will turn out to be an amazing association. There are so many actors who leave me awestruck with their talent.”
Given that Sonam Kapoor is busy with her film commitments, the project will roll later.
Next up for Bhasker are three web series that includes season two of Voot’s It’s Not that Simple. “I think it is a great space,” said Bhasker about the streaming format. “It is offering me an amazing platform to showcase my talent. There’s no pressure of the Censor Board, TRPs or box office. It is pushing the boundaries of the genres. It is the future whether we like it or not.”
