Trailer: ‘Anaarkali of Aarah’ Swara Bhaskar is a strong-minded lady


Actress Swara Bhaskar will be seen in a different avatar of a feisty, erotic singer from a small town of Bihar in her upcoming film ‘Anaarkali of Aarah’. The film revolves around how the titular character, popular for her double entendre songs, fights the misogynist beliefs of the society.

The trailer of the movie has been released and it introduces Swara as Anaarkali ‘the double meaning diva’. She is seen entertaining the men of the ‘rustic land’ with her performances. But then, ‘for every beauty, there is a beast’. A politician, played by Sanjay Mishra, accompanied by a policeman comes to watch Anaarkali’s show and misbehaves with her on that stage. Anaarkali gives him a tight slap and also makes a police complaint, but she gets arrested instead as she is a ‘naachne-gaanewali’. She is bribed and she accepts it, but challenges him that she will not keep quiet.  

Swara has portrayed the glamorous dancer, as well as the harassed-woman perfectly in the trailer.

 ‘Anaarkali of Aarah’ has been written and directed by Avinash Das and also stars Pankaj Tripathi who is also seen in the trailer. The film is slated to release on March 24.
