Dibyendu Bhattacharya, a well-known actor, bravely spoke out about a concerning issue in the Indian film industry. He shared that darker-skinned actors face discrimination and struggle to get positive roles in movies. This is a big problem, and Dibyendu wants everyone to know about it.

In a recent interview, Dibyendu Bhattacharya talked about his experiences in the industry. He mentioned that even though he works hard, he knows he might never get a chance to star in a very big movie. But he’s okay with that. He just wants to do good work, no matter how big or small the project is.

When asked about his earlier statement regarding the lack of positive roles for darker-skinned actors, Dibyendu nodded in agreement. He believes that this idea is widely held in the industry.

Dibyendu compared the Indian film industry to Hollywood. He explained that Hollywood has rules about including people from all backgrounds in their movies. But sadly, he thinks that India is becoming more racist. He feels that Indians are not doing enough to fight against racism like people in Hollywood are trying to do.

He shared an example from a TV show he watched, where the character of Lord Krishna was played by an actor with fair skin. This surprised Dibyendu because, in ancient stories, Lord Krishna is described as having dark skin. This shows how even in traditional stories, there is a preference for lighter skin.

Dibyendu feels disappointed that this bias is still so prevalent. He quoted a line from the movie “Swades” to express his feelings. The line says that things that never go away are the ones that bother us the most. Dibyendu believes that this issue of colorism is deeply ingrained in Indian society and may not change easily.

It’s not just Dibyendu who has spoken out about this issue. Actress Priyanka Chopra also talked about it. She mentioned how fairness creams and the pressure to lighten skin have been harmful in the industry. Priyanka shared her own experiences of facing discrimination based on her skin tone.

Dibyendu Bhattacharya’s bravery in speaking out against this issue is commendable. He’s shedding light on a problem that many people face but may not talk about openly. Hopefully, his words will encourage more conversations and actions to create a more inclusive and fair industry for everyone, regardless of skin color.
