Bigg Boss’ Sumbul Touqeer Khan Reveals People Said “Kaali Ladki Ko Cast Kar Liya” When She Bagged ‘Imlie’ While Talking About Being Obsessed With Being Light
During the 14th edition of Bigg Boss, Sumbul Touqeer Khan was one of the most loved actresses in Indian television. The actress, who rose to fame with her TV show ‘Imlie’, was named as one of the highest paid contestants on the show. After enjoying a huge fan following on and off social media, she came very close to finals week. She recently surprised fans when she bought a luxury home, which she shared photos on social media.
The actress, who is known for her opinion, revealed in her latest interview that she was called ‘Kaali’ because of her skin color. The actress revealed that he initially rejected Imlie, but later when she was cast to star in the show, people were saying “Kaali ladki ko cast kar liya.”
Sumbul Touqeer Khan told ETimes: “When I wrapped Imlie, things didn’t immediately change either. People would call and say “arre kaisi ladki ko cast kar liya, kaali hai. I had felt really bad that day and cried a lot, but after the broadcast things started to change. Our opening TRP numbers were 2.2 and the number just went up from there, it never came down until the time I was part of it. People forgot what I looked like, they just noticed my work. The people who hated me also started to praise me.”
“For me, the color tone is not important. I started to believe that if you’re dark skinned, you can’t be a main heroine. All the heroines, if you see them all, were mostly honest. I have nothing against anyone, but this is what I started to believe. But this stereotype broke when I sacked Imlie,” Sumbul Touqeer added.
The actress further revealed that she had come to believe that if she has this skin color, she can never be a heroine. She further stated that when she was offered Imlie, she was not convinced she would get that role, to which she immediately said no and declined the offer at the beginning. “Mujhe laga main kya starring karungi. But they asked me to send an audition clip. Abhi tak ke life ka sabse kharab audition agar koi raha hai mera woh wohi tha I gave for Imlie,” said Sumbul Touqeer Khan.
