Indira Varma Twitter

Indira has a Twitter account. And by just scrolling through her account you can see that there isn’t much about her in there. We’ve done a little bit of a research and found out that she really doesn’t have time for social networks. Indira is a true humanitarian and an adventurer.

As the matter, in fact, Indira visited South-East Europe in 2016. She has been writing for a website called Medium, and that website is reporting about refugees. That is why she was in Serbia. She wrote, “I was offered the chance to go to Belgrade, Serbia with the International Rescue Committee, a humanitarian organization working on the frontlines of this crisis. I wanted to take the opportunity to put a face to this tragedy, and give a voice to the unheard”. And although her visit wasn’t long, only by writing about the crisis she proved how special she really is.

She obviously likes acting, but she loves traveling. She is a true adventurer. That is why you don’t see her at conventions and on “Talk Shows”.

Is Indira Varma Lesbian?

Indira Varma is not lesbian. Although, there were some scenes in movies and tv shows she was a part of which would allude that. That is only acting. Indira is happily married.
