Abhay Deol attacks Shah Rukh Khan and others for endorsing fairness creams

In the wake of BJP leader Tarun Vijay making comments about how Indians aren’t racist because they’re accepting of South Indians who have dark skin, actor Abhay Deol has put out a series of sarcastic posts that question the part Bollywood celebrities play in perpetuating the idea that fair skin is better.

John Abraham, Abhay sees you being a sell-out.

The actor wrapped it up by driving his point home; if we want racism and xenophobia to end, we have to start by checking ourselves and those around us who encourage these schools of thought.
