‘Lost Many Chances Because of My Dark Skin’
Young actress Ulka Gupta, who made her silver screen debut playing the young Rudramadevi in Gunasekhar’s ‘Rudramadevi’ movie, has revealed that she lost many opportunities earlier because of her dark complexion.
In a recent interview, Ulka divulged that she had to face racism in film industry when she was just seven years old. At 19, she said things have not changed yet.
Being very passionate about acting, Ulka started giving auditions for serials right from the age of seven. Most of the times, the reason for serial makers turning down her was her dark skin. She said that she was replaced in some successful serials as well due to her dark complexion.
‘Makers think that irrespective of talent, fair skinned girls bring lot of attention to serials,’ she rued.
