However, in a recent video, the Dil Ruba actress revealed she has faced colorist comments as well. Speaking about the social issue, she said:
I was with a very good friend recently and he says ‘hey girl, you need to get a tan!’
She further explained how fair-skinned people are told to get a tan, while those with darker skin tones are told they should do something to ‘improve‘ their complexion.
I think it’s high time now that we start having these conversations because for how long will we keep feeling insecure because of the way we look?
The actress further pointed out that everyone should own their skin color and be confident in who they are.
These are really bad beauty standards and we don’t need to follow them. We have a responsibilty towards the next generation to come.
