Esha Gupta on colourism and fair skin obsession in Bollywood, says actors would tell her '‘Tu apna makeup thoda kaala karti hai, gora kiya kar'

People in the West admire Bollywood for its colourful song and dance numbers, and the abundance of melodrama, among other things. But within the country, Indian filmmakers have also faced criticism for perpetuating racism by glorifying ‘fair complexion’ in their films and songs. Many actresses and B-Town celebrities, including Priyanka Chopra, Radhika Apte, Chitrangada Singh, Bipasha Basu, and Suhana Khan have in the past spoken about skin colour bias. Esha Gupta is the latest celebrity to speak about the issue. The actress, who has appeared in films such as ‘Jannat 2’, ‘Raaz 3D’, ‘Humshakals’, ‘Rustom’, ‘Commando 2’, ‘Total Dhamaal’, is also a former beauty queen. Recently, speaking to an entertainment portal, the actress opened up about facing colourism in the initial days of her career. She said, ‘I remember, initially, when I came, there were some actors who I’ve not even worked with… But they met me and said, ‘Tu apna makeup thoda kaala karti hai, gora kiya kar (Your makeup is very dark, you should make it fairer)’, and I was like, ‘Dude, what?’ Furthermore, the actress spoke about how makeup artists used to mask her complexion and how she was typecast as the ‘sexy one’ because of her complexion. She continued, ‘There were also makeup artists who’d try to make me fair always, and then they had to paint my whole body because my body doesn’t match my face. So suddenly I’m looking like a clown. I’ve done two multi-starrers, and they told me, ‘You’re the sexy one’, because black, the skin tone that I have, which is considered black in our country, that can only be sexy or negative, and fair skin has to be the girl next door and sharif.’
