Priyanka Chopra, a Bollywood actress turned Hollywood star in a recent interview expresses her regrets for promoting fairness creams.

The White Tiger actress, who is currently in London talked about her association with skin lightening products to Marie Claire.

Priyanka Chopra who features on the publication’s Spring 2021 cover said, “[Skin lightening] was so normalised in South Asia; it’s such a large industry that everyone was doing it. In fact, doing it is still a check [mark] when you are a female actor, but it’s awful.”

She added, “And it was awful for me, for a little girl who used to put talcum-powder cream on my face because I believed that dark skin was not pretty.”





In her upcoming memoir Unfinished, Priyanka Chopra has also recalled being called “dusky” by industry influencers and the media.

“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, Quantico star had said.
