Bollywood actor Bhumi Pednekar has been criticised for playing a dark-skinned character in her upcoming film Bala. The makers opted for an alcohol-based makeup to create her look, which made trolls ask why not give the part to someone who actually has the required skin tone.
“For Dum Laga Ke Haishaa, I gained 30 Kgs. For Saand Ki Aankh, I went through transformation as well. I am an actor. I will transform myself as and when required. I honestly think it is the direction’s vision and producer’s prerogative on who they want to take. As an actor, I am going to portray every character that comes my way even if I have to become a man,” Bhumi Pednekar said.
