Horrified to be made fun of my skin colour on show: Tannishtha Chatterjee

Mumbai: Actress Tannishtha Chatterjee has slammed a TV comedy show, to which she was invited, for making fun of her skin colour in the name of roast.

As a part of the promotions of her recently released film "Parched", Tannishtha along with director Leena Yadav and co-star Radhika Apte went to show "Comedy Nights Bachao".

The actress, in a lengthy Facebook post, wrote about her frustration with the way her dark skin tone was made fun of.
