Radhika Apte, Anupria Goenka, Malavika Mohanan – 4 Talented Actresses Who Didn’t Let Their Skin Colour Impact Their CareersBollywood
Here are a few actresses who have broken the colour impact and come out successfully in their careers. They’re the real acting talents who don’t give a damn about fair skin
Being dark-complexioned for an actress has been regarded as a taboo in the film business from time immemorial. People would prefer to see a fair-skinned actress as the main woman whether or not she is brilliant or has put in a lot of effort. However, in recent years, several women have defied that stigma by demonstrating to the public that they should be judged only on their acting abilities. They are not allowing their skin colour to affect their jobs.
Here are a few examples of such women who have produced outstanding performances and are well-liked by audiences of all skin tones:
Radhika Apte has risen to prominence as the Netflix and digital platform queen. She has been providing successful movies and shows one after the other and is being cast opposite huge celebrities like Rajinikanth, Akshay Kumar, Nawauddin Siddiqui, Ayushmann Khurrana, Varun Dhawan, and many more. She has worked on projects in Hindi, Tamil, Marathi, Telugu, Malayalam, Bengali, and even Hollywood. She was even nominated for an international Emmy Award, which is one of the world’s most distinguished honours.

She has provided outstanding performances in programmes such as Sacred Games, Criminal Justice, Asur, The Final Call, Abhay, Aashram, and many others. In the film industry, she has collaborated with performers such as John Abraham, Hrithik Roshan, Shahid Kapoor, Salman Khan, and many more.
Malavika Mohanan has emerged as one of the most popular south performers to make a significant influence on Bollywood viewers. She has not only worked with Oscar-nominated filmmaker Majid Majidi on a globally renowned film, but she has also worked with actors such as Rajinikanth, Vijay, Ishaan Khatter, Vijay Sethupathi, and many others. She’s also become a fan favourite on a number of magazine covers.
Frieda Pinto has established a space for Indian actors in the international film with her powerful performances all over the world. She has worked with directors such as Ron Howard, Danny Boyle, Woody Allen, Andy Serkis, and many more internationally famous filmmakers, and she has become one of Hollywood’s most sought-after Indian actresses. Her film Slumdog Millionaire was nominated for an Oscar and she received a BAFTA nomination.
All of these brilliant actresses have repeatedly demonstrated that the complexion of one’s skin tone is not the determining element of an actress’s value. It is their skill, hard effort, and acting prowess that demonstrate their worth to the world.
