Actor Sushant Sigh Rajput says he doesn't encourage the practice of endorsing one skin complexion over another.
The actor, who was present here at the trailer launch of his upcoming film "Raabta", told media persons: "As an actor or even as a responsible citizen, we should not, in any way, endorse one particular skin tone over another."
Sushant's comment comes after actor Abhay Deol slammed fairness cream advertisements, featuring celebrities like Sonam Kapoor, Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone and John Abraham.
However, while asked about the raging topic of national interest -- award of death sentence in Pakistan to alleged Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav, Sushant said: "Where has it been written that we have to have opinion on everything?"
Jadhav has been sentenced to death on charges of espionage and waging war against Pakistan. Islamabad says Jadhav was arrested in Balochistan. India says he was abducted from Iran.
The trailer of "Raabta" was launched in the presence of director Dinesh Vijan and producers Homi Adajania and Bhushan Kumar along with Kriti Sanon, Jim Sarabh and Sushant. The film is set to release on June 9.
