Swara Bhaskar’s latest web series on Prime Video, Rasbhari, has been in the limelight since its release. However, all the attention that it is gaining is not for good reasons.
A few days ago, CBFC Chief, Prasoon Joshi posted a tweet saying “Saddened by Webseries # Rasbhari’s irresponsible content portraying a little girl child dancing provocatively in front of men drinking.Creators& audience need 2 seriously rethink Freedom of expression or freedom of exploitation? Let’s spare children in the desperate need4 entertainment.”
In addition to the complaint from CBFC Chief, the audience doesn’t look impressed by the Rasbhari TV show. The controversy regarding the show and statements from Swara combined proved to be disastrous for the Rasbhari.
The web series Rasbari has an abysmal rating of 2.1 out of 10 on IMDb (At the time of writing). Going by the reviews received, 7,337 have given One Star rating which translates to 81.3% of the total. The users have left comments like “A complete trash story unworthy of bystanding forget about watching.“
A few people are claiming that even though the show was awful, the main reason for such a low rating is Swara Bhaskar, herself. She is well-known for creating controversies through her statements over the web.
