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. Now the 19 years old actress opened about her share of unpleasant experiences she has to face at the at the age of 7 because of her dark skin. She said that she was very passionate about acting but at the very young stage, she came across the dark side of this glamour industry.
She said that after wrapping up Resham Dank, she along with her father used to go for auditions on daily basis and every time she was disappointed to see that producers were looking for fair girl. She added that she has faced several rejections in past, only because of her skin tone and colour. She got the role of Saloni’s daughter in Saat Phere due to her complexion as the serial was based on girl’s courage beyond her dark complexion, so casting director finalized her. She ended it by saying that she wants her talent to speak up for her and not the colour of her skin.
