Why is it that I have yet to see dark skinned Indian women being the main character in an Indian movie or show and most of the background dancers in Indian movies are white… Why is that??? This is why so many brown people struggle with their self imagine.. Show more dark skinned desi people and stop trying to tell us that being light skin is the answer to all of our problems or being of darker skin complexion is ugly!! Beauty comes in every color!! Don’t try to tell us otherwise
The Indian film industry would rather hire a white woman from a different country, put her in Indian clothes, give her a fake tan and pass her off as an Indian before they dare hire a darker skinned Indian woman for a lead role. What the hell.
