So it's no surprise that when West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee held a meet-and-greet during her visit to Mumbai yesterday, Swara was not only present but also raised some serious questions about disturbing events in the recent past.

Swara, who was sitting among the audience members, addressed Mamata, who was seated on the dais, for about 4 minutes during the event. She introduced comedian Munawar Faruqui, who was jailed earlier this year for allegedly hurting Hindu sentiments with his jokes and has since been forced to cancel shows due to "threats of vandalism." Swara stated this as part of her argument. Others whom Swara introduced as the young stars were Richa Chadha,

Swara left a lasting impression on Mamata Banerjee. She listened to her patients before asking, "Why don't you join politics?" You're a tough and powerful lady." The audience also applauded in agreement.

Later, in interaction with media, Bhasker responded to Mamta Banerjee's compliment, saying it was "gracious of her (Mamata) to compliment me." "My question to her was about the abuse of draconian laws, particularly the UAPA, and I was relieved to hear her assure everyone that this was not the case."

Mamata Banerjee also spoke out about Shah Rukh Khan's son Aryan Khan's arrest in an alleged drug case. 'Shah Rukh Khan has been victimized,' she claimed.
