They say beauty is in the eye of the beholder, right? But what if the person who has the benefit of looking-on, can’t see?

Katrina Kaif is more than popular for her acting, she is one of Bollywood’s attractive faces, and is not a newbie when it comes to posing for the camera. But one well-known soap brand had her do something a little different for their new campaign. 

Bhavesh Patel, a visually-impaired photographer was entrusted with the job of capturing Kaif’s beauty for the company.

Yes, you read right, Bhavesh cannot see, and has been blind from birth. The shoot was taped, and Kaif looked nothing short of stunning with her make-up and hair on point, but how did the photographer do? 

#BollyTalks quotes from the video where he said: “Taking a picture of a gorgeous woman seems easy. But for me, her beauty must exude from her personality, her laugh. As soon as she walked into the studio, the whole mood changed. Her aura, her spirit, her fragrance overwhelmed me.”

From the minute he started clicking, it was magic. 

Even Katrina Kaif had to satisfy her curiosity and asked to see the shots which she was absolutely pleased with. 

And admittedly, we were surprised. 

Patel believes that beauty is not just about looks, but about the entire being of a woman, and those photos showed just that.
