Akshay Kumar’s former co-star Shanthipriya who had earlier worked with him in movies like Saugandh had recently opened up on how she faced a lot of rejection back in the 90s owing to her skin colour. The actress had further revealed that she felt humiliated on the sets because of the same. She had also recalled one incident when Akshay joked about her knees being darker than usual when she had to wear a short dress during the shoot for Ikke Pe Ikka.

However, the actress has now clarified the entire statement and has said in a tweet that Akshay Kumar’s comments on her skin tone were not meant to hurt her. Shanthipriya writes, “I want to make it clear, making those comments were akshaykumar's way of being playful with me. Even though his comments stayed with me for a while, I believe he didn't mean to hurt me or cause me distress. I adore all of his work and wish him love & luck for his future!”

The actress had earlier also revealed that although the incident left a deep impact on her mind, Akshay still happens to be a good friend of hers. Shanthipriya had again opened up in one of her interviews about how her sister Bhanupriya quit movies later on as the film industry did not accept the latter too. Not only that but she also revealed about being thrown out of two movies for refusing to wear swimsuits.

Dark knees are always made fun of in India . It made me conscious as a child ! It’s not a playful comment . Akshay should apologise to her .
