Bollywood has a fetish for fairskinned people in general.

WHat you are pointing out is a miniscule of the actors. out of the 4, 1 did well which is a good 25% success ratio. How many of the strugglers do well in reality?

shashi kapoor's children
- karan kapoor looks totally gora
-sanjana loves theatre too much
-the third one  well just failed


there are other mixed race stars not specifically bolly though
AMALA was quite successful down south. SHe is Half Irish

and she has a SUPERHOT SON! who is probably going to make his debut soon
naga akhil

HELEN- half burmese and the other half anglo

JOHN ABRAHAM- he is half parsi and half mallu. that still is mixed rase..isnt it? I dont think he needs  a pic here

Indian Baghdadi Jewish actress of the the 50s i think

if we go into non lead roles, even feroze khan(fardeen's dad) is half afghani and half iranian. he did fairly well for himself too

You have a point, but the others are forgettable or have not made a calculated move to imprint a certain image in the audience's head. Dia? Eh....she's pretty, is decent but has the media image of a masala. Katrina is popular because she has consciously indianized herself to appeal to the masses. I conclude this because she did a complete 180 in her career choices after the debacle that was boom. Also, She can easily pass of as a light skinned indian.  She does the typical commercial hindi movies, gives the typical seedhi saadhi bhartiya naari interviews, has the image of a loyal innocent gf to the big bad misunderstood wolf. Comeon...she's like the innocent nymph everyone wants to protect. So indian men fall flat at her feet every Friday. She's a knockout too. 

Karan, Kunal, Sanjana mainly did non-commercial or theatre work, didn't they? Not to mention they looked more Nordic than Mediterranean/Indian. They were not very appealing to the masala movie watchers. Katrine has adapted and hence she rules. 
Bow down to your words!
Its that innocent, vulnerable image of the girl next door that's mainly working to Katrina's advantage. Desi guys may "enjoy" the sultry women like Bipasha and Lara onscreen, but on the inside, they're all the same hypocrites who wanna have fun with the naughty girls, but at the end of the day, bring home the seedhi saadhi ghar ki murghi.
