1/7Endorsing fairness creams made Priyanka Chopra feel like crap
Priyanka Chopra, who was on her way to the Toronto International Film Festival, spoke recently about what it felt to endorse a fairness cream back home in India. The actress has talked about the terrible obsession with fairness in India, this time she touched upon when she inadvertently ended up endorsing a fairness product. When Priyanka did an ad for this particular brand and later saw it on TV, it made her feel like crap. She said it reminded her of what she felt like when she was a little girl. The ‘Quantico’ actress expressed immediate regret by realizing this is what she felt like when she commercials for fairness products in her younger days. She stated that she immediately got out of the contract and never did it again. It took her seeing herself advocating the thing that made her teenage years miserable, because it was normal and everyone did it. She understood the effect that a product like this has when she did the ad. The former beauty queen said that creams for glowing skin are different, but the concept of ‘whitening creams’ is baffling to her.
