Swara Bhaskar’s first script as a writer – Split Ends won the Asia Society India Centre New Voices Fellowship for Screenwriters last year.
The versatile actor, who is always known for her choice of interesting roles and playing it with great aplomb on screen, also won Rs 2 lakh prize money for coming up with a compelling story which will soon to be adapted into a film.
If sources are to be believed, the author is in demand for her writing skills as several well-known publishing houses have been approaching her with offers to write books, in both Hindi and English.
Not many know, Swara has done her Masters in English Literature and she also has a good command over Hindi.
The talented actress, who is currently busy developing Split Ends and two other new scripts, also completed a workshop that was organised as part of the fellowship.
Swara says, “One day, I want to write a novel. But I don’t think I am capable of doing that just now. One of those two new scripts is a comedy, about two Delhi girls and a trip that’s gone out of control.”
