Veere Di Wedding star Swara Bhaskar has been in the midst of various controversies when it comes to Muslims and Pakistanis. Remember when she labelled Pakistan a failing stated?

Here's a reminder: "I don’t know why people think I’m a spokesperson for the Pakistani government. What do you expect from a state that’s run by Shariah laws?”

She had added, “They’re a nonsecular state. Why should we hold up Pakistan, which is a failing state? I don’t understand why we keep taking pleasure and feeling a sense of self-worth from all the silly things that happen in Pakistan. Rest assured, Pakistanis have way worse vocabulary than we do. I know.”

Well, although she tried to rectify that by stating, "Failing state or not, it’s very similar to India in many ways," we don't think many will forget her original comments.

Nevertheless, recently, the actor took to Twitter to apologise to the Muslims of India. "I want to apologise to the Muslims of India and the non-Savarna castes of India and the Muslims of India again for the ceaseless offensive BULLSH*T and bigotry they have to listen to about themselves this election season."

She went on to reassure them that this is their country too."Don’t be silenced. CALL THIS SH*T OUT."



Swara concluded with a follow up tweet stating, "And as a woman.. what can I say? We deal with the bullsh*t daily."
