Renee Kujur, a model from Chhattisgarh, was subject to humiliation and insults of being "kaali" and "unattractive", only before a friend of hers discovered a close resemblance to singer and Hollywood actress Rihanna. Prejudices of dark skin and her inability to speak English made it extremely tough for Renee, who in her own words, credits Rihanna for her rising popularity. The model, who is currently occupied with a bunch of projects and photoshoots, has chocolate skin, stunning eyes, and a pout that resembles Rihanna's.
With such a deep-rooted prejudice in people’s mind, it would’ve been very find to get work in the modelling world, where the Rihanna factor turned out to be a blessing, Renee said. “Rihanna has already convinced people that she’s sexy and beautiful, and the Western audiences are 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,” she added.
Rihanna's Indian fans love Renee's stunning pictures. Here are a few pictures:
"You really do look like Rih! And you are beautiful on your own too!" read a comment on one of her Instagram post. "Looking at you... Fair girls would want to be dark," Syeda Jaweria commented.
