Kangana Ranaut has been in news for fluctuated reasons; right from for curved relationship status to her unparalleled accomplishment in Queen where the performer was quite respected for her acting abilities.
Why she is in news right now is because she rejected the offer for a 2 crore skin whitening cream advertisement, because she thinks it is racism.
In her interview with HT Café Kangana told, “Ever since I was a kid, I have never understood the concept of fairness. Especially, in such a case, as a celebrity, what kind of an example would I be setting for younger people? I have no regrets about turning this offer down. As a public figure, I have responsibilities”. Now that’s what we call an ace move.
A lot of celebrities feel that the same is not even the right move because it is derogatory and biased against dusky people; this also damages the self- respect and morale of the people who are black.
These creams are not even available in countries like Australia because for them probably colour doesn’t matter, and they adore people with tanned skin.
We kind of support the step taken by Kangana for neglecting the money and supporting a cause.
Celebs like SRK, Katrina Kaif, Virat Kohli, Yami Gautam ( current ambassador for fair n lovely cream), Deepika Padukone, Shahid Kapoor etc. however, have no qualms in endorsing for this multi-million industry.
She should be an inspiration for everybody who support these fairness creams and understand that being fair is not the only achievement and to earn money you cannot advertise every brand and join the Tom, Dick and Harry league.
Then we say that India is a country where discrimination on any basis- caste, colour, creed, sex does not prevail but this statement is so untrue. Ads in India are the biggest example. Indians are probably the biggest racists and we differentiate and judge people on the basis of colour.
