Siddiqui emphasized that in Indian culture, there tends to be a narrow definition of beauty based on specific body types and skin colours. He said, “Hamare yahan toh hum certain body type aur certain skin colour ko good-looking maante hai. But for me, Smita Patil se khoobsurat actress koi aayi hi nahi hai aaj tak. Aisa lagta hai ke she was made for the camera (In our culture, we tend to consider certain body types and specific skin colors as good-looking. But for me, no actress has been as beautiful as Smita Patil till today. It feels like she was made for the camera).”

Furthermore, Siddiqui touched upon the unique perception that the camera offers. He said, “Camera ka kuch ek doosra perception hota hai. We have to see one through the lens. Hum log bina camera ke dekhte hai and decide karte hai ki yeh good-looking hai ya nahi. (The camera has a different perception. We have to see someone through the lens. Without the camera, we look and decide whether someone is good-looking or not) But when it comes to movies, whether an actor is good-looking or not should be decided after seeing them through the lens.”

Lauding Smita Patil, Nawaz added, “If we stand Smita Patil here, she would appear as a typical Indian girl. But as soon as she faced the camera, no one looked more beautiful. If she were here today, she would have been a favourite for international filmmakers. The West was drawn to her.”

He also praised Slumdog Millionaire actress Freida Pinto and shared, “I was at the Cannes Film Festival, and I saw this massive billboard with Freida. To many of us, she might seem like any other girl next door. But there, people were saying she looks more beautiful than some big Hollywood actresses. People were taking pictures of that billboard. It highlights the contrast in people’s perceptions.”
