Reveals a source, “Co-hosts Krushna Abhishek and Bharati Singh did their routine act. It all went smoothly until Bharati decided to bring up Yami’s ad for a skin-lightening cream. Bharati went on to pull up a dark-skinned man from the audience and challenged Yami saying something to the effect of, ‘You claim that your cream can make anyone gora. I challenge you to turn this man gora.’”
Yami giggled, Bharati growled and even pretended to smear-off the dark skinned man’s blackness and put it on herself as nazar ka teeka. The poor ‘victim’ of what can best be described as skin racism looked deadpan at the camera (probably unaware of what had just happened). But what’s with the naked prejudice, guys? And this coming from a comedienne who routinely gets picked on for her weight. Is this what comedy has boiled down to?
