A slew of actors are endorsing fairness products but actor Abhay Deol believes they "stoke the inferiority complex" amongst Indians.

"If Indians were 'White', would there be a 'Dark and Sexy'? Here are some brands to stoke our inferiority complex...," he tweeted, along with a photograph featuring three products.

From Aishwarya Rai, Shah Rukh Khan, Priyanka Chopra to Shahid Kapoor and Varun Dhawan - various actors have featured in advertisements for fairness products.

Active in Hindi filmdom since his debut in 2005 with "Socha Na Tha", Abhay has faced the camera to play various kinds of roles in films like "Honeymoon Travels Pvt. Ltd.", "Ek Chalis Ki Last Local", "Manorama Six Feet Under", "Oye Lucky! Lucky Oye!", "Dev D" and "Chakravyuh".

He had also produced a film "One By Two", but it failed to impress moviegoers.

completely agree with him
these small small things only are the basis of colour discrimination
i feel famous personalities should refrain from promoting such things

Abhay Deol is absolutely right!!! you could be a complete witch and be white in complexion, does that make you better than a kind-hearted darker skinned person?
