|Could we highlight Katrina Kaif's lightness a bit more?|
|Oh yes, that's Denise Richards in Bollywood|

So is this bad, necessarily? Liberated Bollywood actresses shown as intelligent, independent shapers of their own lives (along the lines of western feminism, at least)? White women relegated to the sidelines, which is where they should be in a country of a billion people the vast majority of whom are not white? But the problem is that in the adaptation of whiteness and white culture, ideas of blackness (or even brownness) haven't really been explored. And then I was shocked and dismayed to see SRK in skin whitening ads. Something has gone obviously very wrong.
