Actor Swara Bhasker says she plans to have her own family one day and has signed up as a prospective adoptive parent with the Central Adoption Resource Authority (CARA). She is currently on the waiting list to adopt a child.
Swara says she has not only read up about adoption but also met several couples who adopted children.
“I’ve always wanted a family and children. I realised that adoption was a way to marry these things. Luckily in India, the State allows single women to adopt. I met many couples who have adopted children, met some children who were adopted and are now almost adults. I read up on the process and experience," she told Mid Day.
After doing a lot of research, Swara conveyed her decision to adopt to her parents, who were ‘fully supportive’.
“I am now a prospective adoptive parent on CARA. I know the waiting period is long, often as long as three years, but I can’t wait to be a parent to a child through adoption,” she said.
Swara's next film is same-sex love story titled Sheer Qorma, which also stars Divya Dutta and Shabana Azmi. The short film has been directed by Faraz Arif Ansari and has won acclaims globally.
On Wednesday, Faraz took to Twitter to announce that Swara won the Best Actress in a Supporting Role award for the film at the Soho London Independent Film Festival.
She tweeted about her win as well. “I WON! Woooohooooo! Thank you Farazzzzi for trusting me with Sitara! Thank you Marijke for telling this story! Thank you Shabana ji and Divya ji for being you- you made me rise! So happy, so honoured, so humbled! #lovewins,” she wrote.
