Actor Swara Bhasker responded to a Twitter user who criticised her selfie in a saree and commented that their household help ‘looks much better.'
She hoped that the person respected their domestic help’s ‘labour and her dignity.'
On Wednesday, Bhasker shared a photograph of herself at a park, wearing a saree. “A sari, a park, a walk, a book... ‘at peace’ must feel like this #smalljoys #gratitude #feelingwise,” she wrote. To which a Twitter user stated, “My maid looks much better than you in saree. Much more graceful than you.”
Giving a befitting reply to the person, Swara wrote, “I’m sure your household help is beautiful. I hope you respect her labour and her dignity and don’t act like a creep with her.
Earlier, the actor slammed a man who mocked her Vogue magazine cover and said, “Finally Nallasopara gets a face in Vogue. Congrats to all.” Nallasopara, a town on the outskirts of Mumbai, is inhabited by many low-income families.
“And why not?!? Nallasopara should get a face and space in @VOGUEIndia as should Dharavi... And Shahdara, and Seelampur... why the hell, not you pretentious half-wit pretending to be ‘elite’... You live off the labour of those who live in the areas whose names you use like slur... #loser,” she replied.
