Actors have been facing a lot of flak online for their ‘hypocrisy’ in supporting the Black Lives Matter movement while endorsing fairness products back home. Celebrities such as Priyanka Chopra, Disha Patani and Sonam Kapoor have all been criticised for their comments on social media.
Recently, a journalist asked in a tweet to name the Indian, or Pakistani actors who have never endorsed skin lightening products in their careers. Pakistani actor Mahira Khan said she was one of the few. Been refusing ever since I was a VJ till now. Never endorsed a skin lightening product.
