The Indian actress who works in the Hindi film industry, Swara Bhaskar has been invited by the South Asia Women’s Fund (SAWF – a philanthropic organisation committed to empowering women) to attend their convention on July 15, in Kathmandu, Nepal.
Swara Bhaskar’s excellent performance of a small-town seductive dancer in her latest film, Anaarkali of Aarah got her huge critical acclaim and accolades.
The talented and versatile actress known for taking the road less travelled will attend the convention and talk about women empowerment and its challenges, followed by a screening of her last release, Anaarkali of Aarah.
Swara said that she is very honoured that SAWF has selected Anaarkali of Aarah to be showcased at their festival. The film has a universal appeal. Women everywhere know the experience of being harassed, and abuse of power is a universal theme. The climax of the film gives a vision of a world where a feminist heroine can triumph.
More than a hundred other women’s organisations working in different south Asian countries, including Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka will attend the convention.
