Swara Bhasker commented on the social media talks around Sonakshi Sinha's wedding to Zaheer Iqbal. While supporters are pleased for Sonakshi, some social media users are obsessed with the idea that she is marrying a Muslim man. Swara, who also had an interfaith marriage, spoke out against the reaction Sonakshi is facing, saying that it is Sonakshi's right to marry whoever she wants and that no one can stop her.

“Lots of experts offered their opinions during my wedding as well. But we’re talking about two consenting adults here. What they do in their private lives, whether they get married or not, it’s up to them. It’s nobody’s business if they’re living together, getting married in a court, or having a nikaah, or an Arya Samaj wedding. It’s between the man and the woman, and their families. It’s Sonakshi’s life; she’s chosen her partner. Her partner has chosen her. Now it’s between them and their families. I find this a very time-waste debate,” Swara told Connect Cine

She further stated that if Sonakshi had a kid, the criticism will become even more intense. “Wait and watch, when they have a child, there will be a separate debate around the child’s name. We’ve seen it happen with Kareena and Saif’s kids, and with my kid. It’s completely idiotic, but this isn’t going to end anytime soon,” she said.
