As she basks in the suc­cess of her re­cent re­lease, Tanu weds Manu Re­turns, ac­tor Swara Bhaskar (right) says that all ac­tors are very “self­ish”, and she doesn’t ex­clude her­self from this tag ei­ther. “For any ac­tor, their own role is very im­por­tant. I am only fo­cused on my role. I guess as ac­tors, we are very self­ish peo­ple. You are al­ways wor­ried about how you are look­ing and act­ing. Ev­ery­one is like, ‘I want to be the best and stand out in what­ever I am do­ing, big or small’,” says Swara, who will be seen in ac­tor Sal­man Khan’s up­com­ing film.

Talk­ing about Khan, Swara says that she didn’t think he would be so nice. “It (work­ing with him) was in­ter­est­ing as well as daunt­ing. I have never worked with Sal­man. He is a huge star and has a larger-than-life pres­ence. I found him to be very pleas­ant and nice. I did not ex­pect such a big star to be so nice,” says Swara adding, “He has great energy and is very co-op­er­a­tive. He is in­ter­est­ing to watch. He is very par­tic­u­lar about what he is do­ing and im­pro­vises fear­lessly. That is such a lovely qual­ity.”

Asked what she thinks about com­pe­ti­tion in the in­dus­try, Swara says that she has al­ways taken it in a pos­i­tive light. “We have a lot of tal­ented ac­tors in Bol­ly­wood. I think it is good to have com­pe­ti­tion be­cause it keeps you on your toes. I don’t think too much about things that are not in my con­trol. I think you should fo­cus on do­ing good work and not stress too much,” she says.

For any ac­tor, their own role is very im­por­tant ... I fo­cus only on my role Swara Bhaskar, ac­tor
