Critically acclaimed actor Swara Bhaskar has reportedly refused to play the role of Shah Rukh Khan’s mother in Aanand L Rai’s next venture, where the superstar plays a dwarf. According to DNA, the Delhi-born actor told the director that she would love to romance with the ‘King of Romance’ instead of portraying the roles of mother, sister or daughter.
To Swara’s utter misfortune, the director Aanand L Rai offered her the role of mother as that was the only role left vacant. This led the 29-year old actor to withdrew her name immediately.

Swara Bhaskar came to the limelight for her supporting roles in movies like Tanu Weds Manu (2011) and Raanjhanaa (2013). Ever since, she has gradually been making her presence felt into Bollywood as a rising star. She has also starred in movies like Prem Ratan Dhan Payo (2015) starring superstar Salman Khan and Nil Battey Sannata (2016), which has grabbed the attention of movie buffs.
Off late, she is busy with her upcoming release Anaarkali of Aarah, which is the most challenging role for her so far where she plays a singer crooning double meaning songs. Though, it is a small budget film, it is being promoted by director Karan Johar and actress Sonam Kapoor. Swara’s movie is going to get a tough fight as it clashes with Anushka Sharma’s Phillauri. Both these movies will release across India on March 24.
