Dark Skin Roles But STILL No Dark Skin Actors

It's trying to show more dark skin on screen, but Bollywood is getting it wrong.

    Indian people are such a beautifull race of people. Specially the darker skin tones. They are all beautiful. Which they could celebrate it instead.

    Why I stopped watching Bollywood movies! Got tired of watching the same actors and actresses with light skin and green eyes.

    Here's the reality: Indians worship fair skin. I'm the whole of India, every cream is a skin lightening one. The reality is if dark skinned actors were used then Indians won't wanna watch the movies. The mentality of the whole country must change.

    Sorry but people Like Bipasha and Kajol and Deepika are no long their true stunning dusky selves anymore...they have all does some retarded skin lightening nonsense and lost out on their actual stunningly beautiful golden glow...... Body positivity a struggle in our country cause the people (celebs) who try to promot it have undergone surgery or some type of cosmetic change

    Underrepresented? Are you serious? It's Bollywood not a Democracy. They produce content which people consume. That's how they make profits. All these self righteous people calling things this and that, you are the consumers and you are the reason for the kind of casting that happens.

    Unfortunately this will NEVER change. Asians in general believe and like only fair skin. Be it any ASIAN around the world. (SEE HERE, I HAVE NIT MENTIONED INDIAN, BUT ASIAN INCLUDING THE YELLOW RACE).

    This is why Bollywood is so fake and baseless in wat they portray

    This topic is good but baseless. Dark skin or not its nonsense to hire anyone only based on the looks. Why would you support someone hiring a dark skin actor just because he she got the required look but not the required talent??? Bhumi is a great actress she isn't dark skin but isnt fair either. She's brown and I think she got the role for her talent, not for skin colour. But I would still believe this video only if I see an evidence that a "good" dark skin actor with talent and the required look was rejected and replaced by a fair skin actor either with talent or no talent .

    Bollywood is full of filthy politics, they harass and bully people who come from non filming backgrounds, all these bigger celebrities in Bollywood are full of DOGS, INDIA as a country is full Nepotism

    Indians are obsessed with fair complexion, fair and lovely is selling nuts..it's the viewer demanding actors fairness not nepotism..
