Battling through many controversies and protests, Sanjay Leela Bhansali's film Padmaavat released in theatres but Swara Bhaskar was not very pleased with the glorification of Jauhar in the film, which she expressed through an open letter.

However, her expression of opinion started an entire debate between her supporters and opponents. Many felt her letter was baseless while other used some vile words reacting to actress' letter. Another name added to the long lister of Swara haters is Vivek Agnihotri.

The CBFC member tweeted, "We have interviewed many ‘ex-Naxal’ women in Bastar. Each has gut-wrenching stories to tell, full of abuse, rape and misogyny If they marry, they aren’t allowed to have children. I think fake feminist @ReallySwara must make a trip to understand how the Real Vagina feels like."

The filmmaker went on to add, "What women need to understand that it’s because of the fake feminists like @ReallySwara that the feminist movement gets jeopardised. You just can’t piss off people and win the most critical war of modern times - the gender empathy."

Swara, though, was extremely displeased with the 'Hate Story' maker's comment and replied, "I’m sorry did u just suggest that I go get myself raped?????????? Like seriously? You typed out this tweet Vivek... ????? I’d say pretty low and sick even by your own abysmal standards of conduct & civility."

Ever since Swara expressed that she felt "reduced to a vagina" after watching Padmaavat, people have been pulling her up. Clearing her stance about the letter, she told ANI, " Everybody has right to express an opinion. I kept my views in a very polite manner & had no wrong intentions."

Despite being slammed by various personalities and requested by the star cast of Padmaavat to refrain from creating any more controversy, Swara stood firm in her opinion and said, "I put forward a few legitimate questions. I didn’t expect so much chaos just because I used a word which starts with ‘V."
