Renee Kujur stepped into the modelling industry a few years ago. However, her journey (so far) hasn’t been easy as she had to face a lot of rejection. She was labelled as unattractive and was constantly ridiculed because of her dark complexion.
The present internet sensation has spent her days of youth being called as kaali. Renee has told in one of her interviews that many agencies tried to lighten her skin tone via makeup and photoshop as they believed dark skin wouldn’t work in the modelling world.
Despite the bumpy ride, Kajur proved to be too stubborn to let go of her dream to become a model. And looks like light finally started to show at the end of the tunnel when her associates started comparing her to pop-singer Rihanna. The undeniable resemblances between the two turned the model’s destiny around.
Renee Kujur soon started to land some exciting offers which appreciated her bold and unique features. Though the opportunities are pouring in for Kujur, it is apparently just one-third of what “fair-skinned” models would get.
Well, it takes time to change the mindset of the society, and meanwhile Renee Kujur continues her modelling journey with undeterred confidence. Do follow her Instagram @badgirlrene (yes, it is a play on Rihana’s Instagram handle @badgirlriri) for more updates.
