Dark vs Fair?
In Malaika Arora spoke about the bias and the hardships she faced because of her ‘dark skin’. She said, “I came at a time in the business when this whole thing about dark-skinned, fair-skinned was so prevalent and I was always put into the dark-skinned category so that was always there initially so ya that bias was always there.”

Rising Above It All
But while Malaika Arora revealed that her ‘dark skin’ was biased, she also talked about her relationship status trolls that go around.
She told, “Personally, I care a damn. I really I mean if I have to say as crudely, I care a f**k. The only thing that comes to mind is that I just feel bad for people out there who talk or behave a certain way. I mean like you gotta be really messed up in your head or you gotta be really low self-esteem or its gotta be some sort of you know for you to actually sit and belittle somebody or degrade somebody or be nasty.”
Malaika Arora has been in the middle of much relationship controversy since long. She criticised the trolls and the people who make them.
