Actress Chitrangda Singh has recently opened up about the bad experience of her life that she faced in her profession.

“I know the feeling of living life as a girl with a dusky complexion. This is not something that people will say directly to your face. You can only sense it. I have been through the biases, especially while growing up in the north,” Chitrangda told Bombay Times.


Before coming to Mumbai, Chitrangda lived in Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan, and Delhi.

She also talked about how she lost out on work because of her skin tone. “I did lose out on modelling assignments. In fact, when I lost out on one ad in the initial days of my career, I was specifically told the reason as it had come down to selecting between two people for the part,” the actress said.

However, Gulzar gave her a chance in his music video after he saw her audition that she did for a product. She then realized that not everybody looks for white-skinned people in the industry.

On her work front, Chitrangda was recently seen in a cameo in Ghoomketu. She also appeared in Baazaar alongside Saif Ali Khan.
