Dream Girl director Raaj Shaandilyaa tweeted calling Swara Bhasker 'sasti cheez' but later apologised for his remark and deleted the comment.

Raaj put out a tweet this morning (January 7) which read, “Sasti chizon pe dhyaan na de, Swara Bhasker se mehenga Dainik Bhasker bikta hai. (Don’t pay heed to cheap things because even Dainik Bhasker [newspaper] is more valuable than Swara Bhasker.”

Raaj apologised for his statement with a tongue-in-cheek remark, however. He wrote, "Meri baat se yadi aapko theek nahi lagi to dil se mafi lekin ek guzarish aapse bhi hai ki aap bhi kisi ke baare me kuch bolne se pehle socha karein. chahe wo desh ho, log ho, ya phir koi vyakti vishesh... rahi baat meri to, agli baar role offer zaroor karunga kyunki mujhe aapki actor hone pe koi appati nahi."

Translation: If you feel my comment was wrong, I apologise from the heart. I also request you to think before you speak, be it the country, or people, or any person in particular. With regard to movies, I will still offer you roles because I have no problem with you as an actor.

Just before his above tweet Swara, took a screenshot of Raaj Shaandilyaa's 'sasti cheez' tweet and lashed out saying, "Agli baar role offer karne and aapki film ka trailer share karne ki request vale messages bhejne ke pehle aap bhi sasti harkaton ke baare me thoda soch lo. Good luck."

Translation: Before you offer roles and send me messages to share the trailers of your films, think about these cheap things…

She also replied saying, "Hum vichar dhara aur tark par virodh karte hai - personal aap ho rahe hai."

Translation: I opine and argue on issues, it is you who is getting personal

According to reports, Raaj Shaandilyaa had offered Swara a role in his film Dream Girl, but she refused.
