While the westerners prefer to be tanned, South Asians are somewhat obsessed with fair-coloured skin. Fair & Lovely, ubtan and numerous kinds of facial masks are not always a solution for a darker skin.
When these celebrities could not take their dusky skin tone any more, they turned to skin bleaching and this is what happened!
1. Kajol who was often referred to as black beauty went in for skin bleaching in early 00’s.
2. Priyanka Chopra has gone under the knife numerous times. She has had her skin lightened too.
3. Shilpa Shetty’s picture is self-explanatory.
4. It is quite obvious that Bipasha Basu lightened her chocolate-brown skin.
5. Rekha, the queen of Bollywood, couldn’t resist a fairer skin tone.
6. Sridevi had a lot of work done on herself including skin bleaching.
7. While Fahad Mustafa has denied the rumours, we can’t help but be suspicious.
8. Danish Taimoor allegedly whitened his skin colour.
9. Few more sessions and Beyonce will be white.
10. Well, this one is an open secret – the ultimate transformation of Michael Jackson.
It seems as if beauty doesn’t always lie in the eyes of the beholder.
