Elle Magazine accused of 'whitening' Bollywood star's skin

Elle Magazine has been accused of whitening the skin of Bollywood star Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, who appears on the cover of the Indian edition this month.

Readers have accused the publication of digitally "bleaching" the 37-year-old's skin so that she appears several shades lighter.

Inside the magazine, Bachchan also appears in a series of glamorous photographs with pale skin, the Daily Mail reports.

Fans commenting on the cover were upset by the image.

One wrote: "It seems like lighter skin is always in fashion, as if darker skin is something to be frowned upon."

Another said "They photoshop and airbrush ever freaking cover... every magazine does it."
