Aishwarya to take lawful action against Elle magazine

Aishwarya Rai is in a foul mood and it’s all owing to her latest Elle magazine photo-shoot that spurred very a racial row. The actress, who appears to be a several tones fairer than her original skin tone, is peeved with the publication for making her look a few shades lighter. The actress, who is always politically correct and rarely indulges in any show of emotion, has been fuming ever since the cover hit stands.

Confirming the news, a source close to her told a daily, “Aishwarya’s first response was shock. She believed that these things don’t happen any more.Not in this day and age when women are recognized for their merit, and not for the colour of their skin. She is presently confirming this skin-whitening claims. If there is any evidence of this, she might even take action.”As per reports, the doctored image was brought to Ash’s attention by her fans, who flew into a rage after they saw that their icon was made to look ghastly white on the cover.

However, this isn’t the first time that the magazine has preached Caucasian standards of beauty. It might be recalled that in September this year, the US edition of the same magazine had featured on its cover an African-American actress, Gabourey Sidibe, with a much paler complexion.
