Swara Bhaskar playing mummy


Raanjhanaa and Tanu Weds Manu actress Swara Bhaskar is playing a mother’s role in Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari’s directorial debut, Nil Battey Sannata. When most steer clear from essaying a mum on screen, Swara at 27 has no such qualms. Says Ashwiny, “She sees it as a challenge even though most actresses don’t want to do such roles.” The film, set in Agra, is about a tug-of-war between a 13-year-old girl and her mother. Filming begins in June.
