Shruti Das has stated that she has received ‘abusive comments because of my dark skin tone.’ She has been in shows such as Desher Maati and Trinayani.
Shruti Das, a Bengali actor renowned for her roles in Desher Maati and Trinayani, has spoken about receiving ‘abusive comments’ because of her skin tone. She also discussed her choice to submit a complaint with the cyber cell after a social media user made derogatory remarks about her. Shruti Das told a prominent daily, “I have been subjected to such nasty comments from infancy because of my dark skin color.” I’d ever wanted to be an artist and struggled hard to get here.
However, people continue to make fun of me because of my skin tone. They also believe I made certain concessions to land a part or that I pressured someone to cast me… My life has been filled with name-calling. Someone recently referred to me as a “blackboard”… I’m sick of being judged based on my skin tone.
I, too, am a human being. Though I had been contemplating legal action since Desher Maati’s inception, I finally decided and filed it yesterday.” He also addressed her allegation, saying, “I have been attacked online for two years, and I have raised my voice when necessary.” I was startled to see this girl’s comment on the channel’s official website. Swornendu (Samaddar) inquired whether I remembered if I knew this girl, who is also from my hometown.
I had a flashback to the girl. She is my dancing student’s sibling… When I reached her, she was not prepared to speak. Later, I discovered that she harbors a personal vendetta towards me because of a bit of incident…
With that resentment, she wrote some nasty remarks on the channel’s official page. Later, in a social media message, she apologized and deleted her account.”
