Aashram 3 actress Esha Gupta lately has been making headlines for making some shocking revelations. In a recent interview, she revealed that she and her team were sued by a cosmetics brand when she refused to endorse a skin whitening product. The actress explained that she and her team backed out from endorsing the whitening product after they mistook it for a skin brightening product. Esha pointed out that many people still believe in ‘white supremacy’.
Speaking with ETimes, Esha when asked if she ever felt insecure about her skin colour, revealed, “It happened with a brand contract once and it was actually my fault and that of my ex-agency. We did not read the contract properly, which said whitening and not brightening products. If I put cucumber on my face or eat the right food everyday, the brightness of my face will make a difference. But the brand decided to sc**w me and sue me because I wasn't ready to endorse their skin whitening products. That's when I realised that we come from a land where there's a problem. Some Indians have the mindset where we think like white supremacy."

The actress went on to add that many Indians still believe that “fair skin is superior, fair girls are prettier and that fair people get their way more easily as compared to dark skin people.” She explained that in abroad, people with Indian skin tone are more accepted and that foreign countries have space for everyone.
