Mumbai, June 29 (IANS) Bollywood actress Swara Bhasker says her latest web series "Rasbhari" reflects important issues of society, like "hypocrisy of a repressive society and patriarchy's fundamental fear of female sexuality".

The show narrates a love story set in Meerut. Swara plays the role of a stern English teacher who is the object of attraction for Nand (Ayushmaan Saxena).

"The interesting part about the series is that it comes as a breath of fresh air on the digital platform which has a lot of dark content. While on one hand it will entertain and has a lighter vein, on the other hand it also reflects some very important issues in the society which we do not discuss aloud," Swara said.

"Like adolescent sexuality, the hypocrisy of a repressive society and patriarchy's fundamental fear of female sexuality. But all this is narrated and depicted in a fun way. I hope people enjoy it as much as I enjoyed essaying these roles," she added.

The show streams on Amazon Prime Video.
