When asked about feminism at the Express Adda, Swara stated, "Equality not just of representation but equality of opportunity and equality of accountability, which is something that not just women but a lot of communities in India have not had."

Her latest film proved out to be an eye-opener in a male-centric industry and is continuing to receive mixed reactions. In the film, Swara uses a vibrator to her pleasure. While many in the audience have loved the iconic scene and her performance throughout, a critical-minded section certainly saw it as “unacceptable” and “cheap”.
