Calling Pakistan a ‘failing state’, she addressed the issue and said, “They’re a nonsecular state. I’m not surprised at all. Why should we hold up Pakistan, which is a failing state — 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.”

Pakistani actress Urwa Hocane immediately schooled the actress over her flipping statements that she made in a gap of few years. Urwa took to Twitter and shared a video of Swara making totally contrasting statements. In her old interview, she said, “My friend and I came here and found that the state which is often viewed as the enemy state, is absolutely not like that at all. The amount of love we have received here. I have travelled to a lot of places, London, New York, Paris, Istanbul, they are all nothing compared to Lahore.”


Swara Bhaskar’s views on Pakistan have noticeably changed after her visit to the country in 2015.
