Sonali Bendre, who has worked with some of the biggest Bollywood names in the past admitted that she had endorsed a popular fairness brand but that, she insisted, was because she was young and in need of money. “I have done a couple of fairness ads in the beginning of my career… I was young and needed money, so I didn’t really think about it. Having said that, today if I am offered, I won’t do any fairness ad again,” said Bendre.
Asked to comment on ‘Parched’ actress Tannishtha Chatterjee’s very public fallout with a comedy show, the former model and actress said that it is unfair to make fun of someone’s skin tone. Sonali said: “I think making jokes about somebody’s skin tone is absolutely wrong.”
