MODEL-TURNED-ACTRESS BIDITA BAG OF FILM ‘BABUMOSHAI BANDOOKBAAZ’ SUPPORTED NAWAZUDDIN SIDDIQUI’s REMARKS ON RACISM :

‘Babumoshai Bandookbaaz’ actress Bidita Bag supports Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s remarks on racism.  Model-turned-actress Bidita Bag, who will be seen opposite Nawazuddin Siddiqui in ‘Babumoshai Bandookbaaz’, has supported the actor’s latest remarks on racism in movies and beyond.  Bidita said the only colour or skin an artiste needs is “camouflage”. “I feel, the only skin we need, as artistes, is camouflage. Those who are colour-blind will never see what abilities he (Nawaz) has as an actor and a person.”  “Nawazuddin has never been the one to play it (a character) black or white. He has even taught me to be a chameleon and get into the skin of the character, as per director’s vision,” she said. Earlier this month, Nawazuddin had criticised the bias against dark-skinned people after the film’s casting director Sanjay Chouhan, reportedly said it would be “weird” to cast fair-looking people opposite the actor. “Thank you for making me realise that I cannot be paired along with the fair and handsome because I’m dark and not good looking, but I never focus on that,” the actor had tweeted.
