‘Am Brown n Happy’, Chitrangada Singh Opens Up On Colourism

The debate on Colourism seems to be getting off the track after Shah Rukh Khan’s daughter Suhana Khan opened out on calling her “Kaali and Ugli” by the troll army. The star kid speaks out on how she has been mocked for her dark skin since she was 12 years old.

She took Instagram to write, “There’s a lot going on right now and this is one of the issues we need to fix!! this isn’t just about me, it’s about every young girl/boy who has grown up feeling inferior for absolutely no reason. Here are just a few of the comments made about my appearance. I’ve been told I’m ugly because of my skin tone, by full-grown men and women, since I was 12 years old. Other than the fact that these are actual adults, what’s sad is that we are all Indian, which automatically makes us brown – yes we come in different shades but no matter how much you try to distance yourself from the melanin, you just can’t. Hating on your own people just means that you are painfully insecure. I’m sorry if social media, Indian matchmaking, or even your own families have convinced you, that if you’re not 5″7 and fair you’re not beautiful. I hope it helps to know that I’m 5″3 and brown and I am extremely happy about it and you should be too. #endcolourism
