Swara has acted in small films like Listen Amaya, Machli Jaal Ki Rani Hai and commercial films like Ranjhaana, Tanu Weds Manu and Prem Ratan Dhan Payo.
Now, she will be seen next in Nil Battey Sannata. "It's important that small films get a better platform.
Like 'Ship of Theseus' got attention due to Kiran Rao, and same was the case with 'The Lunch Box' (which) had Karan Johar. Our film Nil Battey Sannata has Anand L Rai and Eros International, so it's a positive thing for you," Swara told PTI.
The 28-year-old actress says she feels lucky to have got meaty characters in commercial films.
"People today know me more because of commercial films like Prem Ratan Dhan Payo, Tanu Weds Manu.' It is important to do commercial films for longevity. Due to my presence in commercial films, the audience will come to see my work in other small and independent films. I work equally hard on both commercial and small films," she said.
Directed by Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari, Nil Battey Sannata is a family entertainer which revolves around a mother and daughter and their quest to reach their dreams.
