Bigg Boss Tamil winner Riythvika: When it comes to casting, fair-skinned actors are given priority

Riythvika, the winner of Kamal Haasan hosted Bigg Boss Tamil 2, is looking forward to doing films and is waiting to share screen space with Vijay Sethupathi. In an interview with The News Minute, she also makes an appeal to all the filmmakers, that how fair-skinned actors are given priority and that needs to change. During the interview, Riythvika was asked what kinds of roles does she want to do? To which, she replied, “I’m not someone who says I’d do only lead characters. I’m game for performance-oriented ones.”

Riythvika also has an appeal to filmmakers. She says, “I have been politely told multiple times that I won’t suit a character despite speaking flawless Tamil. Deep down, I knew why. There’s an unspoken rule in the industry – when it comes to casting, fair-skinned actors are given priority. This needs to change.”

Riythvika also shared her wish to do a film with Vijay Sethupathi. She reveals, “He’s a terrific actor and has a knack of choosing interesting scripts. Let this be a shout out to all directors.”
