In recent time, a lot of voices have been raised by celebs across the globe in support of the ‘Black Lives Matter’ in the US post the death of former footballer George Floyd. Even in India, celebs like Priyanka Chopra, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Disha Patani, and more showed their support to the ‘Black Lives Matter’ movement and championed the cause of the people of the US. However, closer to home, many of the celebs were called out for ‘hypocrisy’ on social media as some of them endorse fairness products. 

A day back, a Twitter thread went viral in which a user asked people to name actors from India and Pakistan who have never endorsed any skin lightening products. As soon as the tweet spread, Sacred Games star Kubbra Sait jumped in and mentioned Kangana Ranaut’s name in the comments. She wrote, “Kangana Ranaut. I think.” Furthermore, Pakistan star and Raees star Mahira Khan also mentioned that she has been refusing to endorse fairness creams since her initial days.

She wrote, “Been refusing ever since I was a VJ till now. Never endorsed a skin lightening product.” Many users replied to Kubbra Sait and thanked her for including Kangana in the list of the actors. Recently, in an interview with BBC, Kangana called out actors who stood up for Black Lives Matter. She said that Bollywood celebs keep mum on issues closer to home but are speaking up for the issue in the US. She even mentioned that many of the stars supporting ‘Black Lives Matter’ have endorsed fairness products. She said, “The Indian celebrities they’ve been endorsing all kind of fairness products and today shamelessly they stand and say black lives matter, I mean how dare they?”

Fans too came up with their own suggestions of the actors who they thought have never endorsed fairness products. It included Ranbir Kapoor, Prabhas, Aishwarya Rai, Sai Pallavi and more.

Meanwhile, recently Bollywood actor Abhay Deol also highlighted the popularity of fairness products in India and mentioned data to back it up. Kubbra replied to the actor there on the post and mentioned that she was only approached once for a shoot and other women involved in the campaign were Masaba Gupta, Kusha Kapila. She mentioned that they refused to be associated with any products that are for skin lightening. Bollywood continues to face flak on social media ever since many of them joined the Black Lives Matter movement of the US.

Kangana deserves an award for bringing out gems of Bollywood dumb philosophy. “Racism is in the brain and not on skin” comment below is like saying “fishes exist on earth and not in water” :D what does that mean?? Was it supposed to be a deep thoughtful :D looks like the custodian of cerebellum is going nuts! PV post!

I'm just wondering who's suffering from paranoia or brainwashing here. Worshiping a Bollywood star and putting it on a pedestal is not normal. Kangana is not a goddess - she is just a human beeing- regardless of skin color or religion- she has no influence one´s (or at least my) life at all. So please don`t worry.

If you think about the nonsense you are writing here, you may notice that everything you claim makes not much sense either. It sounds like a mixture of madness, persecution paranoia and "brain"-washing. Sorry, but you are also not exactly a Super-"Brain" either.

Agree, the racism in brain vs skin argument is hilarious! People who are perpetuated by the brains of others through manipulation and PR, forget how dumb they have become. They take it personally when someone calls their bluff and feel inadequate very quickly :D Arrogance is trying very very hard to pull kangana down but not realizing where you stand.

That probably means your great philosophical knowledge consists only of stupid insults on the lowest level, combined with even greater arrogance. For that you deserve an arward too.

Unfortunately the use or not use of lightening creams has nothing to do with racism and will not fight it. I dye my hair, use tinted day cream and put on my makeup. Nevertheless, I have no need to slander people of different skin color, race or religion, nor to exercise violence against them. Racism exists primarily in the brain and not on the skin.

Kangana has NEVER endorsed fairness cream. In fact she was in the news early in her career for that . BTW, Boro plus is an Antiseptic cream. Get your facts right, all those spewing venom against Queen K., the only celeb with guts!!!

Chill! Dont learn anything from kangana but the profound philosophical essays are coming from YOU. The thinking must have been so deep that the english went for a toss!

And the right spelling in "sense" not sence!

For someone whose dinglish / english is at least as bad as mine ,the use of the Phrase "essay" is a very big term. I don´t like to learn anything from Kangana Ranaut. Neither English nor her kind of bigotry. Have fun writing your profound "essays" full of sence and spiritual depth. I continue to take my English lessons.

Essay writer, spare is the horror again! Please learn English because every fourth word is wrongly used and the sentences make no sense. Learn from Kangana, she taught herself English and now speaks on global platforms.

"Having guts" would mean opposing racism and promoting equality for EVERYONE, like PC and many other Celebs do. Especially in a country whose diversity and rich culture has always been made up of many ethnic groups and which has suffered from foreign determination for decades / centuries. The use or non-use of fairness creams or Antiseptic creams has hardly anything to do with courage,the fight against racism or "beeing the only celeb with guts!!!

Mark Twain said don’t engage with fools, they will bring down to your level and beat you with experience. Kangana should ignore trolls who only have name dropping, abusing, agenda assignment and bad language.

Mark Twain was a great humanist who wrote profound novels about social injustice, violence (including those of a different color) and the importance of tolerance and solidarity in a society. You, I and Kangana can still learn a lot from him today.

Unlike India, there isn't anything in the USA you could call a systematic or cultural racism. Why is race always an issue when non whites are involved in anything? There are hundreds of blacks, browns and yellow people that are shot and killed by similar races in NY, Chicago, Detroit , Pakistan, Africa, China, India, Saudia etc on hourly basis but no one ever cries race card? Many black police officers have shot down black criminals but no one cries racism. I tell you why? Most of us came here from third world countries where skin color is a huge issue and where socioeconomic conditions are in a complete mess. Here, we got the jobs, Iphones, cars, fenced backyards, free welfare money, retirement benefits, social security, equality, justice etc but couldn't get the desired white faces, blue eyes and light hair that we always dream of. Our new found wealth, and equality goes fora toss when we see whites in this country. They remind us of our inferior countries, prejudice and hypercritical cultures, corrupt justice system, inferior physical features, lack of social and welfare system and much more. Now we will not sit in peace until and unless someone change our dark skin or there will be no equality. Until then cry racism !

Kangana should not be taken seriously nor all the minor wannabe celebs jumping on this bandwagon because she’s an immoral hypocrite who chooses disingenuous fights because she can’t address anything real like all the whitening injections, plastic surgeries, changed eye color that she and all the other other outsiders abuse to change themselves. It’s obvious in everyone of them, some more than others but she carries a particular grudge and rageful hate for the natural looks and talent of the insiders whose families tirelessly built Bwood with their own blood sweat tears time energy money, etc. etc that she wants to steal that credit from and appoint herself the rightful heir......,,jealousy has made her sick and toxic. In these hard times for humanity on the whole planet, she should cleanse her soul and pray for the well being of all of humanity and ask to raise her low vibrations.

That's why India needs to stay out of causes they can't relate to like BLM. The controversy around fairness creams are a whole different things that probably non-Asians can't relate to. People feel like endorsing/using them is racist, because it inherently makes it seem like dark people are ugly just by the product existing. But why is it, when white people so blatantly put bronzer creams and stuff to make themselves darker? It's all just appearance based. It's a debate going on here for a long time, which is why I don't understand why these dumb stars would dare try to get themselves involved in the BLM debate, when they can't even defend themselves in these simple matters.
