The beauty of women is often seen associated with their color. White girls are generally considered to be beautiful and dark girls are considered to be second-class in society. Though this perception has changed over time, some Bollywood actresses have also gone through this apartheid.
Recently, Shah Rukh Khan’s daughter Suhana also faced trolling on social media due to her dark complexion. She was even called Kali and Witch, to which Suhana also gave a befitting reply. There are other actresses in Bollywood who have faced criticism due to their dark complexion but without worrying they made their mark.
Priyanka Chopra, who has become an international celebrity, has also fallen victim to apartheid due to her dark complexion. In an interview, he said while talking about this, I was refused the role because I am too much brown. The only way to deal with apartheid is to proof yourself with your work so that the person in front agrees to sit at the table with you. I lived in my country on my own. My work speaks.
Apart from this, when Priyanka went to study in America, she also had to suffer apartheid in childhood. Priyanka had said, ‘When I was 12 years old I went to school in America. Everyone called me brownie. I have suffered a lot of racism in my life. He used to say that we Indians shake our heads and talk. We are made fun of. The smell of food that we cook at home is made fun of. Being fed up with these forces, I left America and came to India.
Bipasha Basu also got to hear taunts from childhood because of the dark color. He mentioned this on social media. Bipasha wrote, ‘When I was growing up, I often heard that I am black and dark. While my mother was also Dusky Beauty and I looked very much like her. I never got to know why my relatives used to discuss this’.
I started modeling when I was 15,16 years old. I had won the supermodel contest. There was news in every newspaper that the dark girl of Kolkata became the winner. I then wondered why the first analysis of my name is dark. Then I went to New York and Paris to do modeling and realized that I get more work and attention here for my skin color. This was my separate discovery.
When I came back, I started getting offers from the film. Finally I did my first film, I was completely stranger to the industry. Suddenly I was adopted and liked. But analysis remained connected. The dusky girl impressed the audience with her debut film. In most of my articles, I discussed more than my work. I did not understand it. I think sexy is a personality and not a color. Why I was considered different from the rest of the actress due to my conscience. I do not understand much difference but people make.
Here is a mindset of beauty and how an actress should look and behave. But I was different. It never stopped me from doing what I love. I was the confidant that I am since childhood. My skin color does not define me. I like it and I don’t want to change it.
The line used to be dark and thick in the early days. In Bollywood, Rekha got her first break in the film ‘Saavan Bhado’ in 1970 but had to face a lot of criticism due to her dark complexion, after which Rekha made a tremendous change in her looks. He is said to have taken skin lightening treatment for this. Rekha is still one of the most glamorous and beautiful actresses of her time.
Nandita, who was seen in a great film like Fire, was also upset due to her dark complexion. For this reason, he had to lose his hands on many projects.
Nandita Das once said, ‘We are often victims of apartheid. People keep saying that she is white. As if having dark skin is not a good thing. The same thing is promoted in films and songs. There is no doubt that songs have also contributed immensely in promoting apartheid. Often the lyrics of the song point to the white color.
The songs have always been white in songs. There are many songs ranging from songs like Gori Tera Gaon Bada Pyara, to Chitti Kaliyan Way, with so much adoration on the fair complexion, that the definition of beauty in the minds of people has become just a blond color.
Actress Shahana Goswami, who has appeared in films like ‘Rock On’, ‘Ra.One’, ‘Heroine’, also said during an interview, “White girls in Bollywood are more preferred than fair-skinned girls like me. Is given. I was once thrown out of a film because of its dark complexion.
Radhika, who was an actress in films like ‘Padman’, ‘Manjhi: The Mountain Man’, ‘Andhadhun’, had to listen to the taunts of people in the industry due to her dark complexion. Many people said that she is not fit for the industry, she can never become an actress, but Radhika did not care about these things. He responded to critics through his best work.
