Bollywood actress Swara Bhaskar has joined hands with her brother Ishan to to launch her production house — Kahaaniwaaley — aiming to create and support entertaining and hard-hitting cinema. “The idea of Kahaaniwaaley has been in the works since the last year-and-a-half. At Kahaaniwaaley, the aim is to support good scripts and filmmakers that have these fresh and powerful stories but they don’t get the right platform to showcase them,” Swara said in a statement.
Ishan added: “There was a very popular Amrita Sher Gil painting – Ancient Story Teller – at our house in Delhi which served as an inspiration for Swara and me. The core idea of the painting is to tell stories which are compelling, fresh, raw and very different from the rest. Both Swara and I share a driven desire to make striking stories. Hence, when the opportunity came to set up Kahaaniwaaley, it fit our vision perfectly.”
They are working on films and will announce the projects soon. Also, earlier Swara Bhasker was in a chat with her “Veere Di Wedding” co-star Kareena Kapoor Khan for Ishq 104.8 FM’s show “What Women Want with Kareena Kapoor Khan” when she shared how difficult it is to be an opinionated woman, read a statement. When Kareena asked Swara about ‘how tough it is to call out patriarchy in your own home‘, Swara said: “It’s very tough. The most difficult thing is to question yourself and people around you, especially whom you love the most including your parents, brother, and boyfriend.
“When it comes to patriarchy it should be viewed as a conversation among sensible people. Also, I feel bad for boys sometimes because the problem lies with the parenting method which doesn’t let them equip with strong and opinionated women. They have also silently absorbed that patriarchal attitude and don’t know how to deal with this.”
