Ghanaian actress Salma Munim has dispelled rumours making the rounds that she has started bleaching to catch the attention of producers to earn her lead roles in movies.
This because over the last few years, there is the perception that light skinned actors sell more making them the prefered choice of producers for leading roles, regardless of their acting capabilities.
As a result of this, some dark skinned actors and actresses have been rumoured to have resorted to bleaching to be cast in such roles too. ” I will not bleach and I have not bleached. I am confident with my body and skin tone and I like the way I look”, she told Showbiz last Monday.
The 25 year old actress made it clear that she is against bleaching because she is fully aware of the health hazards that it leaves in its trail.
“I admit being light skinned is nice because it gives you some confidence but bleaching is not good because of the damage it causes the skin. Moreover I don’t need to be light skinned to get roles. I know my capabilities and movie makers I have worked with can attest to that” she said.”
Touching on other issues, the Passion and Soul actress revealed that she would not mind being in a relationship with a celebrity even though she believes “it will take some ‘X factor’ for us to sustain the relationship”.
Salma who hails from the Upper East Region has been in the movie industry for almost a decade. She has since featured in a number of movies including The Will, Seduction, No Apology, Crazy and Five Brides.
