Freida Pinto: People [in India] Are So Fascinated By White Skin

Freida Pinto: People [in India] Are So Fascinated By White Skin | Freida Pinto

Stunning actress Freida Pinto recently discussed with The Independent about a delicate issue: Indian women’s obsession to get lighter skin. Let’s hear her out: 
“It’s completely wrong medically – and culturally, of course, because it’s giving people the wrong idea. My friend who’s a doctor told me that she’d have parents come in with kids who were three years old, saying, ‘Do something – I want my baby to be fair.’ It’s just this thing that people [in India] are so fascinated by white skin. There’s a lot of people there who are naturally really pale. But the whole idea that you have to be fair – without naming actors, but there are actors who admit it – the fairer you are, the easier it is.”
Even within Bollywood? “Oh yeah, absolutely. The amount of pancake cream on your face is ridiculous. I don’t think it is required, by the way. If a cream can give you confidence then you really have to check your whole confidence department in the first place.”
… says Freida.

What do you think about Freida’s revelations?
