Broke is Beautiful for Indian Actors

The Indo-Asian News Service reports that actor-anchor Rakshanda Khan says she has had trouble finding work because television is full of village-based shows and producers complain that she is too glamorous to cast.

"I am having trouble getting work nowadays. Every other show is either about poverty or something to do with villages. And I have producers telling me - 'Aapko kaam kaise dein? Aap toh gareeb lagte hi nahin (We can't give you work, you don't look poor at all)'," Rakhshanda told IANS. "I never knew that I look so rich."
