In the video series, which is now circulating on the Internet, Mohan is seen wearing a dark base makeup on her face. and dressed as a street vendor selling roses across the streets of Bangalore. Clearly, digital creators have done so to see the lives of economically backward people.
However, the concept of the content was not so good with social users criticizing Mohan for exploiting the financial status of a particular class. Just to get the number of views and likes on her page.
One social user called Mohan ‘painting’ himself dark to earn money. ‘Influence and money’ instead of getting people of a certain color and working there for a living.
Another blamed the Indian influencer for ‘using’ powerful tools like merciless photography and being ‘insensitive’ about the hardships in someone’s life. Indian influencer being bullied faking dark skin

Then find dark skinned people selling flowers for a living to take pictures and pay them reasonable fees/royalty!
Wealthy whites paint themselves darker to earn money, and money doesn’t say what you think.

For me, your body language lets go. But for those who defend this as the appreciation of makeup artists must watch this video. Absolutely tasteless.

Photography is an art form and a powerful tool. Here it is grossly misused and too sensitive. Where is the art in this story?
