Swara Bhaskar has done various roles in the past which have been off beat, the latest one being NIL BATTEY SANNATA. She is back with yet another movie ANARKALI OF ARRAH which revolves around an erotic singer (played by Swara Bhaskar) from Arrah in Bihar, who sings double meaning songs. She is the star performer of her troupe and is ambitious and confident of her success until a fateful day when Anaarkali has a confrontation with a very powerful man of the region. What follows is a series of events that escalates the conflict between the two and the world around her turns increasingly vicious and misogynist. And then, she fights back.


Speaking about the same, Swara Bhaskar says, “ANAARKALI OF AARAH is a very special film for me. Not just because it’s a relevant and topical film on an important issue but because I have never been as closely associated with the pre-production and making of any film as I have been with Anaarkali. Even when Avinash ji had simply narrated the idea to me I was sold. I have read every single draft he has written and I feel like I grew into the script with the script. I have never worked so hard on any film as I have on Anaarkali, I injured myself, fell sick, had a breakdown everything while filming and yet strangely I never lost faith in this project. I think we have made a very courageous film that deserves to be widely seen.”

ANARKALI OF ARRAH to be scheduled to release on 24th March, 2017.
