In India, beauty and fair skin are considered to be synonyms for the majority of people. Fairness has become a stigma in the society while the West continues to sunbathe for a perfectly tanned dusky skin. Same is the case with the Bollywood actresses.
Well, Bollywood actresses have to meet the demands of the masses (that love fair skin and fair skin only). So, most of them are going for skin lightening/whitening treatment. For eg. If we consider Kajol’s skin color. Was it the same in DDLJ? Hell no! But, on being asked ‘Kajol did you undergo whitening treatment?’ Her answers are pretty much made up. We know it!
Many B-town actresses have undergone some major whitening treatment. Check out the list below:
