Rimi Sen who plays Nirali confesses that she also felt that she was a boy in the company of Ajay, Tusshar, Sharman and Arshad. “I play a sweet and beautiful girl in the film. The best thing that I like about the film is that though it has four heroes, I am the only heroine. Rohit Shetty is amazing as a director. He can make even a black African look pretty“. [Yahoo India, via POP]
She. Did. Not. Just. Say. That. I’m in shock. This is a feed from this article.
It is common knowledge that Bollywood and Indians in general are obsessed about fair skin, but this sort of racism takes the biscuit. It’s more surprising that Glamsham printed the quote and Yahoo India carried it. Their policy is clear about not carrying racist material In case Yahoo take the article down, I have a screenshot.
My suggestion: Write about this story and / or contact Yahoo through this form or email them and express at your disgust at Yahoo carrying the story and demand they pull Glamsham off their feed. We need to force Glamsham to apologise and make it clear racism will not be tolerated. Only a few news outlets have carried so far.
