Having fair skin is considered as a plus point if you aspire to become an actor. Dark-skinned actresses are hardly given leading lady roles and skin lightening treatments have become common in Bollywood. There was a time when Priyanka Chopra used to endorse fairness creams but she stopped being a part of such campaigns after moving to Hollywood.
In a recent interview to Marie Claire, Priyanka opened up about how as a child she used to believe that dark skin was not pretty. She also spoke about how skin lightening is normalised in South Asia.
