A few days ago, actor Swara Bhasker revealed that she had decided to adopt a child. Now, in an interview, the Veere Di Wedding actress has opened up about the typical concerns she was met with when she decided to adopt a child as a single woman. However, Swara goes on to say that she has received a lot of support from her family and is also unaware as to how many years will pass by before she is assigned a child.
“There are those very typical concerns that people have like ‘Oh, you know, now you won’t get married’, or ‘Who will marry you’, and I did hear that from some people. But I have to say that overwhelmingly, I had a lot of support from my parents, my brother, my sister-in-law, my close friends and family,” she told a leading daily.
“The process of adoption is very detailed with several steps, including background checks. That happened to me as well. I was not treated any differently. The officials that I spoke to were very helpful in explaining the procedure to me, but no special favour was given. I am now on the waiting list just like everyone else is. I don’t know how many years it will take for me to actually be assigned a child, it’s a random lottery system, you cannot choose if a child is allotted to you,” she added.
On the work front, Swara will be seen next in Jahaan Chaar Yaar which also features Shikha Talsania, Meher Vij and Pooja Chopra.
