"I dislike people who stereotype women, like how could they judge any girl wearing a short dress or having short length hair would not be following ethics, morals or otherwise or if I have a brown skin, I would not be entertained in the media world as it is owned by the fair complexion actors," Teena said in a statement.
"I have proudly broken the myth time and again with each of my show, series and movies that I have been a part of even though being a dark brown skinned girl," she added, who is now part of the new series "Date Gone Wrong".
Talking about the series, co-produced by Culture Machine and Eros Now, she said: "'Date Gone Wrong' is a fabulous series, which is not only humorous but also puts light on the stereotypes of the world. Small minded people are such a turn-off. It's a free world and everyone should be allowed to live their life as they want to."
