'I look up to Karan in admiration'

Actor Swara Bhaskar is all set to surprise the audience once again with her unique avatar of an erotic singer in ‘Anaarkali of Arrah’ as director Karan Johar unveiled the film’s poster recently on Twitter.

Directed by Avinash Das, it is the story of a singer played by Swara, who hails from Arrah in Bihar, and is popular for her songs.

Shimmering in a multi-colour ‘lehenga’ with heavy jewellery and a long braided ponytail, Swara is looking every bit a star performer in the poster.“India is a treasure cover of stories and circumstances. It’s always a pleasure to watch and experience a heartland story that engages and entertains in equal measures. ‘Anaarkali of Arrah’ is one such story,” Karan said.

“I am glad to have been asked to release the first poster of this new and incredible cinema experience,” he added. Karan also took to Twitter to praise the 28-year-actor for experimenting with her roles.

“Well done @ReallySwara for constantly breaking ground!! 24th march is the date guys! For this new world and engaging film!!!”

To which she replied, “Many many thanks Karan!! The wait is over guys. Here is the first official poster of #AnaarkaliofArrah unveiled by the inimitable #KJo.”

Swara believes that the ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ filmmaker is an encouraging person whom she can count on anytime for a piece of advice.

“I look up to Karan in admiration and also because I feel I can turn to him for advice,” she said.
