Veere Di Wedding

Appearing alongside Kareena Kapoor, Sonam Kapoor, and Shikha Talsania, Swara played the role of a girl who lived life on her own conditions.

The character of Bindiya from Raanjhanaa remains a standout character for Swara. She was critically acclaimed and her performance lauded by both fans as well as critics. She pulled off the character with charm making the love triangle between Zoya, Kundan, and Bindiya a memorable one.

Nil Battey Sannata

Featuring as Chanda Sahay, a high-school dropout, household maid, Swara made the character hers. The movie was hailed by critics due to Swara’s standout performance in Nil Battey Sannata, which was directed by debutant Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari. The film shows the story of a person’s will to fulfill their dreams irrespective of their social status.
