Taapsee Pannu, who is currently busy promoting her new Bollywood film “Naam Shabana”, told that the reason why she was not successful in Telugu and Tamil Film Industry is that she was too fair and people could not accept her because of her color complexion.
"I have never used a fairness cream in my life. I don't think being fair in any way superior to any other colour. And when I started working, I found that being fair has actually backfired for me. I have lost a few films because I'm too fair. Especially down South (she has done several Tamil and Telugu films), they don't relate this complexion to a girl-next-door. This is something that has not worked for me, so why will I endorse it?" She told in her recent interview
While critics are of opinion that if what Taapsee is telling is true, then all famous actress in south India should be in dark color and people wouldn’t have accepted heroines such as Jayalalithaa, Tamannaah Bhatia, Amy Jackson, Kajal Agarwal, Hansika Motwani, Samantha..etc
