Racism is racism! Stop covering it up !

Not a racist here but from what I heard, brown skinned people are looked down more in India than in USA

I guess, she should have a look at how her sister treats people below her in terms of status and fame.

The I irony. Look at how Indians treat blacks like savages. Good riddance

Where is the money coming?

They were probably being loud and obnoxious.

is she even relevant??

She sounds drunk

I have to admit that’s really bad hope Tanisha is ok

Give me a break ! Bollywood pretends that there is no racism in India. There is Religion and caste racism and bigotry. Prejudice exists between states and regions. Bollywood famous for colorism. Only light skinned actors & actress are considered for jobs. How many Bollywood people would like to paired with dark skinned individuals? So dear Tanisha, Don’t be a snow flake and make a big deal about racism in USA.

completely agree !
