Swara says she did not get enough chances in Bollywood

Swara, while speaking about her passion for cinema and not getting any film offers, opined, “I loved my job and I chose this profession for my love for acting. I wanted to do so many roles and acting assignments. I feel bad I didn’t get as many chances as I wanted. I am tagged as a controversial actor. Directors, producers, and distributors start speaking ill of you. Aapki ek image ban jati hai (You get slotted into an image). But the thing that really hurts me is that I didn’t have my fill of the thing I love the most — acting.”
