Swara Bhaskar Comments On Kangana Ranaut, Says, “Being Great Artist Doesn’t Mean You’re Great Human Being”
There has been an ongoing fight on social media between the two Tanu weds Manu stars Kangana Ranaut and Swara Bhaskar. The war of words between the two is quite popular. Kangana had targeted Swara Bhaskar on numerous occasions and now it seems Swara wants to give back. She has taken a slight jibe at the actress by calling her a good artist but not such a good human.
In an interview with IANS, Swara said, “I think it has nothing to do with Kangana in specific. Yes, in past we had our share of arguments but I think we really need to rethink that statement that one has to be a great human being to be a great artist. We often make this mistake that just because a person is playing a character on screen that is enduring and heroic and because they are great with their craft and are talented, they are the same in real life. No, that does not necessarily mean that they are great human beings in real life. That does not mean that all the heroic quality of an on-screen character is there in the actor, who is performing it.”
She then stated, “There is nothing further from the truth. Acting is a profession like any other. A doctor, an engineer, or a teacher could be great at their jobs, (but that) does not mean they are great human beings, too. I, for instance, was a fan of a particular author because of his writing. When I met him in person, I think he is one of the most obnoxious person I have come across. But he is a great writer. So, your craft is not who you are as an individual. Whether you are a dancer, singer, actor, writer, or photographer, you have to have talent, training and skill, and you have to know your craft. That may not be the reflection of your personality.”
