Actor Ranbir Kapoor has reportedly refused to promote a fairness cream. The actor is currently busy with Rajkumar Hirani's biopic on Sanjay Dutt

Recently, Abhay Deol has slammed fairness cream advertisements, featuring celebrities like Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone and John Abraham, “in  a reference to a comment made by a politician on TV”.
