Guys the topic doesn't have to be about who you idolize. It can be someone who a lot of new comers in bollywood would look up to. Recall that movie I want to be Maduri Dixit or something like that. There is a reason why the movie was made...because she is an icon.

And the title says what's your def of an icon, not who is your icon! LOL
 
Lensa some or should I say most people here are too cynical to admit that they consider some celeb as an icon.. and that too bolly celeb.. chichi.. ganda.. bolly celebs are only there to be ripped apart.. LOL


Or maybe some people are just too self-absorbed to think highly of anyone else but themselves. I include myself in this category. Who has time to idolize people for free? Pay me and I'll do it. 


LOL

I think the main confusion here is the distinction between an Idol and an Icon.

An example would be Mitun and his Iconic Disco Dancing I guess?

^ Here is a def than...

A cultural icon can be a symbol, logo, picture, name, face, person, building or other image that is readily recognized and generally represents an object or concept with great cultural significance to a wide cultural group. A representation of an object or person, or that object or person may come to be regarded as having a special status as particularly representative of, or important to, or loved by, a particular group of people, a place, or a period in history.



Idolatry is the worship of a physical object as a god

And that's from wiki lol

It is a general idea that people love to hate others!

The reason I dont really considery a bolly celeb an icon is that they didnt do any nek kaam to reach there.

Like a doctor, lawyer, business man have different avenues of jobs, these guys act for a living. I dont think they are anything that Special to be called icons.

Somebody who has gone the extra mile to be a standing example decades later or atleast for a few years could be an icon. I dont see any of the current crop that way.

thinking about icons, I really think people who have a rags to riches story are icons for me- one of the reasons rajni is an icon is his rags to riches story. they give hope to the common man!

most of the current crop are starkids. I dont really respect them.

An icon for me is sushmita sen who went the extra mile adopted two orphaned girl children and is there every step of their lives instead of hiring nannies.

For me Mani Ratnam is an icon not for his movies, but for the work he does for the Banyan(he is the chief fundraiser of Banyan. This institute takes care of mentally ill destitute women on the roads of chennai and help them regain a life)

These people are not typical stars but some of their actions set them apart for me.

By MY principles an icon should be someone who doesnt endorse drunk driving, hunting, some one who takes his job seriously. In short someone who goes the extra mile. and ofcourse a monogamous/monoandrous person.

I cant take people who dwell too much on their red carpet appearances seriously.
