Brows­ing through ac­tor Saumya Tan­don’s In­sta­gram page, one could not pos­si­bly miss a photo of Saumya sans makeup, cap­tioned, “Lot of peo­ple ask me if my eye colour is real... yes yes yes I have dark green eyes ..... all real”. When asked about it, the pop­u­lar TV ac­tor replies that she felt this is the best way to clar­ify doubts about her nat­u­ral eye colour.

“I don’t know where such dis­be­lief comes from. At times show­biz is fake and peo­ple mis­use technology to en­hance features and make one look ap­peal­ing. [It is] not just about my eye colour, many have also asked me whether I am fair in real life,” laughs Saumya, be­fore adding, “I don’t blame them. Re­al­ity, at times, doesn’t match up to the reel world.”

Saumya feels one should not try to make their features look bet­ter, ar­ti­fi­cially. “I have seen peo­ple wear­ing colour­ful lenses that don’t go with their skin tone.” She thinks that wear­ing the right kind of clothes and tak­ing good care of the body can en­hance one’s looks. Saumya adds that she does her make-up and styling for her on­go­ing show, her­self.
