Ministers should focus on real issues. - Swara Bhaskar on orange bikini controversy 

These days, it has become very common for some people to take offense over trivial things related to Bollywood movies and blowing it out of the proportion. Recent example of this is Shahrukh Khan's upcoming film 'Pathan' which has landed into controversy for showing actress Deepika Padukone in an orange bikini. A fraction of netizens and some ministers think that it is an attack on Hindu sentiments and resultantly, they are calling for a boycott.

In a recent media interaction, actress Swara Bhaskar opened about the issue and expressed her displeasure over the fact that our ministers are occupied with trivial issues like this instead of focusing on their real work. She told ETimes, "Ministers and elected representatives, who frankly should focus their attention on real issues of their constituents and the public, find that targeting Muslims or whipping up communal frenzy is a good way to be in the news."

She added, "We live in times when the ruling party and its ideological parent, the RSS, claim to be a champion of Hindus and claim to speak on behalf of all Hindus - which is patently untrue and the minions of that party are simply following the example. They use people’s faith for political gain and frankly that’s despicable and dangerous."
