Recently, BBC Urdu correspondent Haroon Rasheed asked on Twitter about the same debate. Can you name the Bollywood or Pakistani stars who have never supported whitening products?
In response to this question, Mahira Khan, instead of naming another star, said that she never supported whitening products even at the beginning of her career when she was a VJ. He also refused to promote whitening products.
Singer Momina Mustahasan also responded to Mahira Khan’s tweet by saying that she too has always refused to work in skin whitening products. The amount of melanin in your skin has nothing to do with how beautiful you are. “If we all responsibly refuse whitening products, it could change the market,” he added. We have the power to change everything.
