Dream Girl director Raaj Shaandilyaav called actor Swara Bhasker "sasti cheez" on Twitter. He later apologized for his remark and deleted the tweeted.
Swara, however, took a screenshot of the tweet and lashed out at the Raaj. She wrote, "Agli baar role offer karne and aapki film ka trailer share karne ki request vale messages bhejne ke pehle aap bhi sasti harkaton ke baare me thoda soch lo. Good luck."
Raaj apologized for his statement with a tongue and cheek note. He wrote, "Meri baat se yadi aapko theek nahi lagi to dil se mafi lekin ek guzarish aapse bhi hai ki aap bhi kisi ke baare me kuch bolne se pehle socha karein. chahe wo desh ho, log ho, ya phir koi vyakti vishesh... rahi baat meri to, agli baar role offer zaroor karunga kyunki mujhe aapki actor hone pe koi appati nahi."
Raaj had offered Swara to do a role in his film Dream Girl. The film, which starred Ayushmann Khurrana and Nushrat Bharucha in lead roles, was a major success.
