Priyanka Chopra stopped endorsing fairness products

BOLLYWOOD: Priyanka Chopra had nettled social media after she came forth extending support for the Black Lives Matter movement.

Many users were quick to slap labels like ‘hypocrite’ on the Quantico actor owing to the several fairness cream products she had endorsed earlier.

And in the midst of all the criticism, Priyanka’s fans managed to dig out an old interview of the actor where she can be seen explaining why her endorsements for fairness products are a thing of the past.

Talking to Barkha Dutt in 2015, the Baywatch star said: “I felt really bad about it, that’s why I stopped doing it. All my cousins are gora-chitta (fair) I was the one who turned out dusky because my dad is dusky. Just for fun, my Punjabi family would call me ‘kaali, kaali, kaali’. At 13, I wanted to put fairness creams and wanted my complexion changed.”

“But then I got into films and I didn’t understand. And I did do a fairness endorsement for a year and then I felt like ‘I look pretty alright.’ I shouldn’t, I don’t wanna do this and then I didn’t do it,” she said.
