It was a perception before, and the society is changing now and tilting towards earthy complexion. Dusky is definitely sexy now. Bipasha Basu, Kajol, Priyanka Chopra, Sameera Reddy, Lara Dutta, Mallaika Arora, Sonali Kulkarni, Raima Sen, Konkona Sen, Tanushree Dutta, Koena Mitra, Nandita Das, Jiah Khan and Geeta Basra are examples of earthy complexioned actresses who are very popular and extremely admired for their beauty and grace.

We all need a beautiful wife only, and beauty never bound any color in it.
it may be the skin beauty for some person, but in most of the cases we go for heart and mind beauty.

Come to south india, here most of the people are little bit Dark in color and never mind to get marry a same color lady.

So color should not be the main factor before choosing a life partner.

Cheers,
Aks
