Swara Bhaskar

Known for her work in Bollywood flicks like Tanu Weds Manu, Raanjhanaa, Prem Ratan Dhan Payo, Veere Di Wedding, Nil Battey Sannata, Swara Bhaskar recently hit the news after she helped migrants reach home. Following the footsteps of fellow actor Sonu Sood, Swara managed to send back over 1300 migrants to their respective homes in Uttar Pradesh and Bihar. News has it that AAP MLA Dilip Pandey helped her get tickets for these stranded individuals. This she has been doing ever since the lockdown started, the reports further suggested. In May 2020, she had also “contributed 500 pairs of shoes toward migrant relief efforts,” which were distributed by Karwan-e-Mohabbat volunteers. This the 32-year-old actress announced through a tweet on May 25.
