Bollywood open to dusky beauties: Tannishtha Chatterjee

Mumbai, Aug 18 (IANS) Acclaimed actress Tannishtha Chatterjee says the Hindi film industry has always been open to dusky beauties. But she feels it’s the society which is biased.

Tannishtha feels that the Hindi film industry has always accepted dusky actors like Smita Patil, Shabana Azmi and Kajol.

“I think we had accepted dusky beauties as well. We had Smita Patil, Shabana Azmi, Kajol, who is a huge star and Rani Mukerji we have always celebrated dusky very well. We also had actors like Aishwarya Rai Bachchan on the other hand. I think Bollywood is open for dusky beauty,” Tannishtha told IANS.

The “Chauranga” star adds that “it’s the Indian society which is more close to certain kind of prejudice”.

“All cultures have certain biases and skin tone is one such bias,” she said.

Known for her power-packed performance in films like “Parched”, “Angry Indian Goddesses” and “Gulaab Gang”, Tannishtha says she is also keen to do typical Bollywood commercial entertainer.

“I love them and I would do them as well. I don’t think it’s the end of my journey. My upbringing has been different I grew up watching all kinds of cinema and my exposure has been diverse,” the 35-year-old said.
