The birthday girl has achieved much to gush about in just 30 years of her existence. Starting from independent ventures, the talented actress has paved her way into mainstream cinema with sheer determination. Despite making her debut in 2009, Swara garnered recognition in 2011 only.

Her quintessential portrayal of the bride-to-be in commercially successful 'Tanu weds Manu' made her an unforgettable part of our lives. Starting then, the actress is yet to look back. She went on to play supporting roles in multiple commercial films until 2016 when she was offered her first lead role.

Starring in Ashwini Iyer Tiwary's Nil Battey Sannata grabbed her the stardom Swara deserved. Then came, Anaarkali of Aarah in 2017, a film which changed her fans' perception of the versatile actress. A firm believer in feminism, the actress has also openly expressed her opinions on various topics.
