Priyanka Chopra’s one regret

Priyanka Chopra’s one regret

Priyanka Chopra is one of the most successful actresses in Bollywood, but she has a single secret regret of her career. During her younger years, she had endorsed and promoted a cream for fairness.

In an interview with the international magazine Glamour, Priyanka talks about her growing up in India and the realities she faced there, including facing prejudice against the color of her skin.

She speaks of how she hears a lot of condescending pity from others about her skin color, that it will be hard for her from those who would hate her for it.

In India, skin-lightening creams are therefore advertised, claiming to work their ways in about a week. Priyanka herself would use these when she was very young.

Priyanka then further elaborates that after she had become a celebrity, she ended up endorsing a fairness cream. However, after having done this, she claims that she had regretted it almost immediately after.

When she was in her early twenties, she did a commercial for a cream to lighten skin, her playing a girl conflicted with insecurities. After seeing it, she had a realization, questioning what she had done in advertising that product.

After she realized that, she began talking with pride about the way she looked. She said how she actually truly likes her darker, tanned look of her skin tone.

Priyanka is not the only one with this situation, for other Bollywood celebrities have recently been admitting their faults when it comes to their endorsement of creams for lighter skin in their country.

For example, actor Abhay Deol recently went on Facebook and publicly called out some of his peers from his industry for their advertising of various fairness creams, with his posts since having gone viral.
