Tweeple are having a gala time criticising the female-centric 'Veere Di Wedding' for various reasons, specifically a masturbation scene featuring Swara Bhaskar. While the film is running a successful course on box-office, Netizens didn't find the storyline too fascinating.
Recently, the film made headlines for getting banned in Pakistan due to women openly discussing sex and cussing on screen. Seems like even the Indians didn't find the scenes too appealing. As Twitterati was spilling their individual opinions about the film, something unusual was noted.
Many of the Twitter users were sharing the same tweet, "Hey @ReallySwara just watched #VeerDiWedding with my grandmother. We got embarrassed when the masturbation scene came on screen. as we came out of the theatre my grandmother said: "I'm Hindustan and I am ashamed of #VeerDiWedding (sic)."
For some inexplicable reason, there seems to be a tremendous demand for Veere Di Wedding among Indian grandmothers, regardless of their alleged, consistent (word-to-word consistent!) opinion after the film. pic.twitter.com/VCn1wroHlf— Karthik (@beastoftraal) June 2, 2018
When Swara got a whiff of the activity, she hit back in her own bindaas andaas stating, "Looks like a certain IT cell sponsored the tickets - or definitely the tweets." Many of Swara supporters were already at the fake trollers asking the reason for bringing their grandmother to watch an adult-themed film.
???????????????????????????? Looks like a certain IT cell sponsored the tickets- or definitely the tweets !!!! ????????♀️????????♀️????????♀️???????????????? https://t.co/KIUqMoOLRG— Swara Bhasker (@ReallySwara) June 2, 2018
One of the users tweeted, "For some weird reasons, people who can’t spell “Masturbation” are going to watch #VeereDiWedding with their Grandmothers and want answers from @ReallySwara (sic)," to which Swara replied, "Joy Das you bring so much joy to my Twitter timeline."
She further wished for the "paid trolls to at the very least re-arrange the sentences and run a spell check before their paid tweet attacks." Notably, the viral tweet used the quote mentioned by many celebs including Swara to condemn the Kathua Gang Rape.
Known for speaking her mind, Swara ignited another controversy when she called Pakistan a ‘failing state’ for banning 'Veere Di Wedding' during the film promotions. She had said, "They're a nonsecular state. I'm not surprised at all. Why should we hold up Pakistan, which is a failing state."
Swara further added, "I don't understand why we keep taking pleasure and feeling a sense of self-worth from all the silly things that happen in Pakistan. Apologies to all my Pakistani friends right now... Rest assured, Pakistanis have way worse vocabulary than we do. I know."
Her demeaning words towards Pakistan didn't sit well with the country's proud citizens who reminded her how she called the neighbouring nation "Best country she has ever visited," during her 2015 visit to Lahore. Pak actress Urwa Hocane schooled Swara through a series of tweets.
Pakistan is the country that you @ReallySwara referred to,in 2015, as the “Best country you have ever visited” and it has only gotten better in the last few years in every aspect along with when it comes to having bigger hearts and welcoming our guests . 1/3— URWA HOCANE (@VJURWA) June 2, 2018
2/3 While you’re on this spree of empowering women,i must say you’ve become a bitter person. And all of this is odd coming from a citizen of a state that bans their own films i.e. #Padmavat so let’s not talk about women empowerment.— URWA HOCANE (@VJURWA) June 2, 2018
3/3 This only reflects on u as an ignorant person who is also quiet contradictory in her own statements. It’s not a failing state for sure but u come across as a “Failing Human Being” !!! @ReallySwara— URWA HOCANE (@VJURWA) June 2, 2018
From the citizen of the Phenomenal Pakistan ????????
Urwa, who had signed off her previous day's anger-filled statement with "the citizen of the Phenomenal Pakistan," posted a fresh post on Sunday which included both the videos of Swara from her 2015 Pakistan visit and the recent interview with NDTV's Rajeev Masand.
Her ignorant comments about Pakistan enraged the Twitter users who were earlier willing to watch the film. Many others criticised the actors for promoting "vulgarity" and targeted the female leads of the film for “being lustful”. Here are some hilarious tweets from VDW troll fest:
Was really looking forward to Veere Di Wedding but really disappointed with what Swara Bhasker has said.— Mayhem ✨ (@mahamtopia) June 3, 2018
Trust me everyone here hated that the movie got banned.
I was going to watch #VeereDiWeeding but @ReallySwara’s ignorant comments about Pakistan turned me off. You can’t talk shit about a country & then apologize to your Pakistani fans and assume it makes everything better. @sonamakapoor cast smarter women next time #SwaraBhasker— SidraS (@Sidra_a21) June 3, 2018
And the same Swara Bhasker came to Lahore once. She was interviewed by Mazaaq Raat and was overly excited to be in Lahore. Abb film release nahee hui tou yeh baatain. @ReallySwara who are you even?— Farwa ???? (@farwazaidi458) June 2, 2018

I think the first 10 mins of the movie #VeereDiWedding is slow, dull, abusive, vulgar etc. About the rest I will never know.— The-Lying-Lama (@KyaUkhaadLega) June 1, 2018
fan coming out after watching Veere di wedding. pic.twitter.com/ewcbqCynK6— Dr. Laliya (@Lala_The_Don) June 1, 2018
@vdwthefilm #VeereDiWedding watching veere di wedding reminds me of how slum dwelling women abuse each other when they are fighting over a water tank . The profanity in the movie is just not reflective of any other culture. Shame on @AnilKapoor for producing this thrash— ???????? (@Vikashjani) April 28, 2018
There are only 2 types of people watching #VeereDiWedding:— Madhur (@desi_tyrion) June 2, 2018
Braindead feminist women
And their Mangina Boyfriends/Husbands.
Real women empowerment lies in movies like Dangal. Women deserve equal rights, pay, opportunities etc.But trying to glorify porn, showing serial abuses etc. is not going to help any cause except showing off why should boys have all the fun!— shivakumãRF (@imtheone_shiva) June 2, 2018
