'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.'

Sameera Reddy

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'.
