Bollywood movies are largely about casting for purely aesthetic purposes over substance in talent. Admittedly her complexion would unfortunately be a hindrance in securing a Bollywood role, but the truth is while the general consensus is that she’s immensely talented, she’s not particularly known for her beauty in Hollywood either. Just look at her IMDb boards, YouTube videos, etc. at the moment. They’re filled with nasty threads targeting her appearance. She’s considered a comedian, and most would agree that she got to where she is on her talent, which is an afterthought in Bollywood, not her looks. If that’s what you’re getting at, a fairer comparison would be Freida Pinto or Nina Davuluri – both ‘conventionally’ attractive women who probably wouldn’t make in Bollywood purely because of their color.
