5 Celebrities Who Turned A Few Shades Duskier For Their Respective Roles

Many celebrities have been seen changing their skin tones for films and it's mostly for the requirement of the role.  However, many times celebrities have found themselves being criticised for changing their skin tones from what it actually is.

Recently, Bhumi Pednekar also got a lot of flak when she shared a poster of her upcoming film Bala wherein she is seen in a dusky skin tone which isn't her natural complexion.  There are many actors who resorted to the 'tan' to look like a particular strata of the economy and we think it's not cool.

Varun Dhawan In Coolie No. 1

Coolie No. 1, starring Varun Dhawan and Sara Ali Khan, is a remake of the 1995 original film starring Govinda and Karisma Kapoor. Varun Dhawan has turned into a dark-skinned guy, maybe to look like a porter, which is his character in the movie.

Here's how he looks:

Bhumi Pednekar In Bala

The film stars Yami Gautam, Ayushmann Khurrana and Bhumi Pednekar in lead roles and has been making headlines due to a lot of reasons. Have you seen the trailer of Ujda Chaman? If you have, you'd see why the film has fallen into a controversial pit.

However, Bhumi is seen in a completely different look for the film.

If you haven't seen her look yet, go ahead:

Hrithik Roshan In Super 30

The film is a life story of India's renowned Mathematician Anand Kumar and has made the audience go crazy with the extraordinary journey of a coaching class teacher.

Hrithik Roshan has done a great job playing the role of Anand Kumar, but was the dusky skin tone very important for the role?

Ranveer Singh In Gully Boy

We loved the film, didn't we? Alia and Ranveer's performances blew our minds and definitely inspired a lot of boys from different gullies of the country to own their passion.

Here is Ranveer's look in the film-

So, maybe it was the requirement of the role.

Alia Bhatt In Udta Punjab

This movie directed by Abhishek Chaubey was loved by the audience and we saw Alia Bhatt in a never seen before avatar. She looked way darker than her original complexion and the brainchild behind the look was to show her belonging to an underprivileged segment of the society.

Here's how she looked-

Now, maybe it is because of the requirement of the role or it's becoming a trend to look duskier, but we anyway loved all the movies on this list. However, are we really using skin tone to demonstrate a different section of the society? If yes, then that's racism, according to me.
