Does This Indian Model Look Like Rihanna?


By NAN ET Editor

 News Americas, NEW YORK, NY, Fri. July 6, 2018: An Indian model, who once faced discrimination for her dark skin, is now getting more attention and gigs after being compared to Rihanna.

Renee Kujur, a model from Chhattisgarh, India, says comparisons of her look to Bajan star Rihanna changed everything for her.

It wasn’t until a friend told her that she looked like Rihanna that Kujur noticed a change in the way that she was treated, with designers and photographers noticing the similarity too.

“I laughed off the Rihanna part. But soon, everyone was saying the same thing,” Kujur said according to the Hindustan Times “With such a deep-rooted prejudice in people’s mind, it would’ve been very tough to get work. The Rihanna factor turned out to be a blessing. Rihanna has already convinced people that she’s sexy and beautiful, and the West is crazy about her. If I resemble her, how can I be unattractive? That’s how our mind works. I don’t know where I would’ve landed without Rihanna.”
