Priyanka Chopra Calls Endorsing Fairness Creams 'Awful'
Global icon Priyanka Chopra is looking forward to the release of her memoir - Unfinished. It will make it to the stands on February 9. Ahead of that, she is sharing a few bits of her life that have made a space in her memoir. Recently, she spoke about endorsing fairness cream. In a new profile for Marie Claire, she spoke on this topic. Priyanka was quoted saying, “[Skin lightening] was so normalised in South Asia; it’s such a large industry that everyone was doing it. In fact, doing it is still a check [mark] when you are a female actor, but it’s awful. And it was awful for me, for a little girl who used to put talcum-powder cream on my face because I believed that dark skin was not pretty."
