Abhay Deol took a bold step by criticizing Bollywood actors’ endorsing fairness creams, misleading the public and propagating fair skin. On April 12, 2017, Abhay Deol posted on Facebook pointing out all the actors from Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone to Sonam Kapoor for endorsing fairness creams in a country where we talk about equality in all colors and creed.
Abhay Deol’s post is receiving tremendous praise on Twitter and while Sonam Kapoor and Suchitra Krishnamurti tried to offend him, people slammed them on twitter.
Sonam Kapoor, in order to retaliate to Abhay Deol, posted a picture of Esha Deol endorsing a fairness cream and asked him what he had to say on this. Abhay very diligently replied her that he opposes this too and asked her to read his views in his post.
Embarrassed of her reactions to Abhay’s post, Sonam Kapoor even deleted all her twitter posts but couldn’t escape the criticism on Twitter.
