Indians are renowned for their exotic dusky complexion but thanks to the obsessive skin lightening and fairness craze,every other girl wants to be” fair ” to look pretty here.When the concept of beauty is considered in the society, a mass number of people find fair skin and sharp features as the bench mark for beauty.And well,our Bollywood divas have not stayed behind either.A number of well known Bollywood divas seemed to have undergone the lightening/whitening/fairness treatments to keep up with the societys Notion of beauty.To be impartial,I would say theres nothing wrong with skin whitening or lightening as it is a personal choice at the end of the day.However this trend should not be a requirement to call a women beautiful or to judge her capabilities.
Here are top bollywood actresses that seem to have gotten skin whitening procedures or surgeries.
Kajol is truely a very talented actress and we have loved every bit of her career in the Bollywood industry.However she is one of those Bollywood divas who clearly went for some skin whitening treatment or surgery.She has never admitted to getting any skin lightening treatments and had quashed a number of rumours by saying that “by staying at home had kept her from getting tanned,hence she looked a bit fairer.Rumours also stated that Kajol underwent a Melanin Reduction Surgery to lighten her complexion.
From Bhanu Rekha to Rekha,this B- town enigma left behind not just her flab.but also her dark complexion to turn into a dazzling beauty.
Shilpa almost changed everything about her!!!
Named the confident “Dusky beauty of bollywood”.She was voted as one of the sexiest woman in Asia in 2005 and 2007.She was always quoted as saying “Im dark skinned and im proud of it”However,hypocrisy slipped out of her nature forced by pity taunts and hurful comments,and she finally gave in.
Even if she was happily crowned as the worlds most beautiful woman,she was not happy being dusky,that we can clearly see.
Stardom makes you rich and opulent,but that it makes you fair also?we did not know that.Its true we live in a society obsessed with fair skin,but even those Bollywood divas who became famous despite the tone of their complexion could not resist the temptation of looking Fair & Lovely and did,we know what,to get many shades lighter.
All those who have seen her early films know what change she has undergone!
While we were almost in love with her bronze looks,Chitrangda perhaps was unhappy and wanted to acquire the coveted GORI CHAMRI that she eventually managed.
