Bollywood Actress Swara Bhaskar Explains How Masturbation Scene Was Empowering, Swara Bhaskar’s masturbation scene in Veere Di Wedding has irked a lot of people on social media and got heavily trolled. Many users objected to the self-stimulating scene and questioned the actress about how showing a girl gratifying herself in a film was related to women empowerment. While many were waiting for the Raanjhanaa actress to speak, she did when a user asked her the pertinent question on Twitter a couple of days ago.
In the particular scene, Swara Bhasker’s character named Sakshi Sinha can be seen pleasuring herself by using a vibrator till she reaches orgasm, which she refers as ‘charam sukh’ in VDW. Some people, especially the womenfolk, went on to say that it looked more like a horror scene to them than erotic.
“Just one question, how masturbating related to empowerment? Who is stopping them from masturbating but in public? I think empowerment doesn’t mean that you should masturbate in public. It’s private,” the user tweeted.

Swadeept! 1. Sakshi was in her PRIVATE bedroom.. not public
2. Masturbation is abt owning ur body, sexuality. Empowering.
3. In a culture that largely silences or ignores or shames female sexuality showing a girl gratifying herself in a film in a non judgemental way is empowering https://t.co/PQXwaLsAku

Sakshi was not just in her PRIVATE bedroom. She is in a movie which will be watched by millions. Don’t call it PRIVATE.
2. TOTALLY AGREE WITH IT.
3. Why every1 has to connect all stuff with women empowerment? Our culture has never silenced sexuality, be it of male or female https://t.co/pSyBWnyW2q

Even Swara Bhaskar‘s explanation didn’t manage to convince a large section of the audience who further raised argued and asked the actress whether they should start expecting men masturbating in upcoming films.
