IMO... Icon is too big a word to be used for someone in Bollywood....
 
Icon is someone who would inspire me... who I would look up to....
 
and none in Bollywood fit the bill.... Smile 
 
 
 
Not just bollywood... but everyone is flawed.. be it a bollywood figure.. holly figure.. someone in sports.. a legend .. or a leader.. the whole concept of expecting an idol or icon to be flawless.. doesn't make sense.. all these people just specialize in something.. and that is something one can appreciate about them.. other than taht you cannot expect anyone to be flawless...
 
Ladygaga.... I did not say that an Icon is not flawed.... Thats why I said... IMO...
 
And IMO Icon is sombody I look up to and who inspires me... That could be my dad or a teacher or a it can be someone walking down the street... Does not matter... Smile
 
Its just that in Bollywood all I see is a bunch of hypocrites and Yes they entertain me but definitely they dont inspire me...
 
I think hypocrites exist everywhere...but i guess its simply your opinion so i cannot question that.. but i do think .. that things that we observe very closely everyday.. start seeming less special to us.. bollywood is soo part of our lives.. that we don't think its anything special.. celebs are under 24/7 media scrutiny.. and all that.. if you put even a regular person under such scrutiny then you will start seeing flaws in them too!

An iconic person doesn't have to do good things to be considered iconic eg adopting a baby from Africa.  Celebs who entertain and have a huge fan following can be considered iconic.

^ this is where it becomes difference in perceptions.

there are people who idolize entertainers and there are people who idolize do gooders! Im a fan of movies not stars.

I get annoyed with people who cant bother abt the homeless kids in their city and go all the way to third world countries to have rainbow colored families.Ermm


someone who is an icon to me may not be an icon to anybody else as well.

Again... I did not say that hypocrites dont exist anywhere.... They definitley do exist and i have no doubts about it...
 
The TM's question was how it related to Bollywood and my answer was that I just dont relate it to Bollywood.... Simple... Smile

Lensa... agree its a matter of perception....and if everyones peception was the same this forum would have been a very boring place...
 
Different opinions... Different ideas... Different outlook... is what makes this place fun.... Smile

I know maddy, that's why I liked @bandicoot post because I do respect her opinion. I was just pointing out that an iconic person doesn't always have to do good things to be considered one, to some that's not the case...and its fine with me!  Mine was also an opinion. Smile
