New Delhi: Choreographer and director Remo D’Souza recently shared that he was called by names like ‘Kalia’ and ‘Kalu’ for his skin colour, which impressed him a lot as he hated it. In an Instagram post, Remo said that he dealt with name-calling by remembering his mother’s advice.

She revealed that her mother would tell her that it is not the color but the heart that matters and that she would sing Mohammed Rafi’s song ‘Hum Kale Hai To Kya Hua Dil Wale Hai’ from the 1965 film Gumnaam.

Along with the video of her lip-syncing the song, she wrote, “I used to hate it when ppl called me #Kalia #Kalu but then my mom told me it’s not #Rang, it’s #Dil What matters and uses. Sing this song, since then it’s become my favorite song. Now I sing this song to @lizelleremodsouza.”
