Swara Bhasker to adopt child, reveals she is on waiting list: Actor Swara Bhasker has revealed that she has signed up as a prospective adoptive parent and is now on a waiting list to adopt a child. Bhasker had visited an orphanage in Delhi during Diwali and the interaction with young girls there sparked a realisation that she was ready for parenthood.

Bhasker has also revealed that her parents fully support her decision. So how is Bhasker going about the process of adoption? The Veere Di Wedding star has signed up with Central Adoption Resource Authority as a prospective adoptive parent. The actor added that she has always wanted a family and children and eventually realised that adoption was a way to marry these things. “Luckily in India, the State allows single women to adopt. I met many couples who have adopted children, met some children who were adopted and are now almost adults. I read up on the process and experience,” Bhasker said.

Speaking to Mid-day, she also revealed that she was well aware of how long an adoption could take. “I know the waiting period is long, often as long as three years, but I can’t wait to be a parent to a child through adoption.”

The actor has recently won big at Soho London International Independent Film Festival 2021, securing the award in Best Actress In Supporting Role category, for her performance in the film Sheer Qorma. Directed by Faraz Arif Ansari, the film also features Divya Dutta and Shabana Azmi.

Sharing the news about her win on Twitter, Bhasker wrote, “I WON!!!!!!! Woooohooooo! Thank you Farazzzziiiii for trusting me with Sitara! Thank you Marijke for telling this story! Thank you Shabana ji & Divya ji for being you- you made me rise! So happy, so honoured, so humbled!”
