Endorse it or not, it's a known fact that fairness creams have a huge market in India. But actress Payal Rohtagi accused the film industry of racism and favouring white skin.  

With Sunny Leone getting ready to make her debut in Hindi films, Payal hinted at how actresses like Katrina Kaif, Zarine Khan, Nargis Fakhri and Leone are getting work because of their skin colour whereas Freida Pinto is largely ignored here.

'I found similarity in there faces and the fact that on an average indians go crazy for white skin. That's why a talent like frieda pinto gets ignored here but does A plus films in hollywood. So its either camps or foreign exports who get work in indian cinema inspite of them being. Not able to speak hindi or dance or act. Sad,' she tweeted.

As her claims went against her, she cleared that she wasn't out of work. 'And calling me out of work so let me enlighten you about my new reality show survivor to coming soon. Guess these so called journos can't get their facts right before making their own so called blah blah blah,' she added.

There were reports about Shah Rukh Khan planning to gift BMW 7 Series car to superstar Rajnikanth as a thank you gesture for his guest appearance in Ra.One. But Rajni reportedly refused to accept it.

However, according to SRK, there's no truth to the story. 'Giving cars to ra.one team!! how these unreal reports start is unfathomable. ppl make stories..ask about it..make another story..unending.. its quite amazing the extent of opinions i read about public figures. at times it can only be best described as 'artificial hallucinations',' he tweeted.

In the meantime, Shah Rukh will be seen attending Dubai International Film Festival and inaugurating the 42nd International Film Festival of India. As far television is concerned, he won't be hosting Zor Ka Jhatka 2 but will be seen co-hosting Zee Cine Awards with Priyanka Chopra.
