MUMBAI - 'Veere Di Wedding' actor Swara Bhaskar made the headlines when she called Pakistan a 'failing state' in response to the ban on her movie, adding that India should stop making it a point of discussion.

"I don’t know why people think I’m a spokesperson for the Pakistani government,” she said. “What do you expect from a state that’s run by Sharia Laws?"

Swara's statement ignited a lot of backlash from Pakistan, including Pakistani celebrities like Mehwish Hayat, Armeena Khan, Urwa Hocane and Gohar Rasheed on social media.

The actress has now come forward with a tweet saying that  her goodwill towards the people of Pakistan remains unchanged despite the chain of events.

She didn't seem to fail to see the humour in the situation.

Last, the actor tweeted her stance upon her regard for the people of the neighbouring country.

"They’re (Pakistan) a nonsecular state. I’m not surprised at all. Why should we hold up Pakistan, which is a failing state — I don’t understand why we keep taking pleasure and feeling a sense of self-worth from all the silly things that happen in Pakistan. Apologies to all my Pakistani friends right now. Rest assured, Pakistanis have way worse vocabulary than we do. I know," Swara had said in her interview earlier prior to the backlash.
