He was born with a dark complexion and has no qualms about it. In a country where people are obsessed with light skin tone, actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui says beauty is not about being fair.
When asked the newly-appointed ambassador of The Mayur Suitings about endorsing a fairness product, Nawazuddin said: “Fairness? No, no. No plans (of promoting fairness creams). You don’t need a product to look beautiful. Some people have a measurement for beauty… that people with a particular complexion are beautiful.”
“I believe that beauty is personal. It’s not forced on anyone like if you are fair then only you are beautiful. This is a concept of the West that we have borrowed from them,” added the 42-year-old.
What about fashion?
“Fashion is something that you think looks good on you considering your body type and comfort. It is not what a particular group of people suggest,” said Nawazuddin, who likes to dress up in casuals on most days and suit up for formal events.
