‘I read that I’ve peeled five layers of my skin’

alking of the rumours around her identity and ethnicity, model-turnedactor Angela Krislinzki clarifies that she’s an Indian national, with the family name Krislinzki, because of her Polish father. “He’s now working in Spain, but that doesn’t make me Spanish, though I’ve lived in Spain for some time. I’m a Mumbai girl. Main bahut achhe se Hindi mein baat kar leti hoon (I can talk very well in Hindi),” she says.
She’s upset that “they’re changing information on my Wikipedia page and it’s not under my control”. Apparently, it says that she’s a graduate in Hindi literature, “which is not true”, says Angela. “I have a Masters [degree] in Psychology and all my professors in college (KC College, Mumbai) can validate this.”
Angela readily admits to participating in reality shows, including Splitsvilla, adding that the subject didn’t come up earlier because no one asked her about it. “I participated in reality shows, besides doing TV commercials and movies in South [India].” She explains that her name “Annie” on the show was the nickname she had in college. “When I was on the show, I was called by a certain nickname. Now that I’ve grown up, I feel I should go with the name on [my] documents,” she says.
Squashing rumours of multiple surgeries to look more Caucasian, Angela says, “Yeah, I also read somewhere that I’ve peeled some five layers of my skin. I really want to know from a dermatologist if it’s really possible. I understand someone peeling one superficial layer… but five? What does skin surgery really mean? Peeling off the entire skin and putting [on] new skin? And where does that new skin come from?” She says that she isn’t as white as she looks in her photos. “Most girls look very different in their Instagram photos, so please don’t judge on that basis.”
