“Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder and, unfortunately, in India we are pretty much stuck with fair skin, light eyes, straight hair,” the 29-year-old said here.
Describing a typical Indian woman, Sameera said: “I think beauty is the actual Indian woman – warm skin, saanvli (dusky), dark eyes and just the Indian woman. Also, little bit not-size-zero, a little jhatak-matak (flashy), that for me is Indian beauty.”
Asked which actress, according to her, lights up the big screen, she said: “Madhuri Dixit for me. When she smiles, there is nobody who can match her. Kajol and I think from the newer lot Kareena (Kapoor), she definitely has that X factor.”
Sameera was last seen in “Tezz” and will next be seen in a cameo in Prakash Jha’s “Chakravyuh”.
