Tamannah, known for her complexion, has said south India is not obsessed with fairness.
“I don’t think that there is any obsession with fairness down South. In fact, I had to tan myself for two films. One of them is Baahubali and it turned out to be a big grosser at the box office,” she said at the India Today Conclave in Chennai.
She added: “Unfortunately, our country is obsessed about fair skin. But, I think that Indian colour is beautiful. More than anything, I encourage women to be the way they are. Accepting yourself is where the beauty begins.”
Amyra Dastur of ‘Ko’ fame said, “A lot of us are from Mumbai. We do a lot of work down South. In fact, the divide is actually disintegrating with time. And in near future, there won’t be this divide anymore.”
Shriya Saran said, “India is one country and it is Indian cinema. I deny that there is any North-South divide.”
