In an open letter to Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, a group of child rights activists including Shantha Sinha, former chairperson of National Commission for Protection of Child Rights, have demanded withdrawal of the recent advertisement of Kalyan Jewellers, calling it racist. The letter wanted the advertisement, in which the actor appeared as a bejeweled, relaxing aristocratic Victorian woman with an underage slave child in the background, be retracted. “We wish to convey our dismay at the concept of this advertisement, and that you have, perhaps unthinkingly, associated with such a regressive portrayal of a child to sell a product. While advertisers routinely use fantasy images to sell products, they must surely desist from using images that condone, legitimize, normalize, or build desirable fantasy around slavery or servitude of any kind, including child slavery or child servitude. Further, the extremely fair colour of your skin contrasted with the black skin of the slave-boy is obviously a deliberate “creative” juxtaposition by the advertising agency, and insidiously racist,” the letter read.
Meanwhile, addressing the writers of the letter, Aishwarya has issued a statement in which she said, “On the onset we would like to thank you on drawing our attention to the observation of the perception of the advertisement. Here is an attachment of the shot taken by somebody during the shoot. The final layout of the ad is entirely the prerogative of the creative team for a brand. However, shall forward your article as a viewpoint that can be taken into consideration by the creative team of professional working on the brand visual communication. Thank you once again.”
Kalyan Jewellers posted on their Facebook page, “The creative was intended to present the royalty, timeless beauty and elegance. However, if we have inadvertently hurt the sentiments of any individual or organisation, we deeply regret the same. We have started the process of withdrawing this creative from our campaign.”

However, there was a small group of men, who constantly ignored my requests. The ladies meanwhile were consistently asking me to ask them to move slightly. Again, I kept very calm and upon the ladies persistence I again requested the Gentleman to give them some space. It was then that the particular doctor in mention starting swearing at me from the audience and showing his middle finger in front of all the doctors present. I realised at this point he was drunk which all the doctors also witnessed.

(…contd) Now what I want to ask is why is it that I am always perceived in a negative way even when I am doing things for the protection of our own Women? Would people have rather preferred if I hadn’t taken a step to help others? Either I should ignore people like this and let these type of things carry on in our country or forget who I am and stand up for the vulnerable.
I have been like this for the last 18 years and I will never change myself. I would like to tell you of an incident last year where I helped two men on the road who had suffered a hit-and-run accident. The next day the news reported that I had hit them with my car and I was the target of the media. The question is why is help first perceived in the wrong way?
Finally, I just want to conclude by saying the people can decide whether I was right or wrong. I did what I felt was for the betterment of our ladies and children and I will always continue to stand up against what is wrong.”
