Bollywood's Youth Icons

Indiatimes Movies conducted a poll on 'Bollywood's Youth Icons'. We present to you the results

1. Shahid Kapoor

Actor Shahid Kapoor has been voted the ideal 'Youth Icon' in a poll conducted by Indiatimes Movies. He secured 38 per cent of the votes.

The actor made a bang with his film, 'Jab We Met'. And is not looking back. Known to possess Shah Rukh Khan's charm coupled with Aamir Khan's perfectionism, Shahid Kapoor is a teetotaler and doesn't smoke. His once-upon-a-time affair with Kareena Kapoor was much talked about. Though there have been link-ups with Vidya Balan and Sania Mirza, the guy is still single and ready to mingle.

2. Hrithik Roshan

Actor Hrithik Roshan came second place with 30 per cent votes.

His Greek God looks, perfect body and down-to-earth attitude, makes Hrithik Roshan an easy choice. His act in 'Jodhaa Akbar' went down well with the masses. Having struck gold at the box office even in his dad Rakesh Roshan's films, Hrithik became a household name with ad commercials. A one-woman man, the actor tends to steer clear of controversies.

3. Abhsihek Bachchan

Actor Abhishek Bachchan comes third in the 'Youth Icon' poll.

Actor Abhishek Bachchan has come back into the reckoning post his 'Dostana' act. The guy who has married the most beautiful girl in the world, Aishwarya Rai secured 16 per cent votes in the 'Youth Icon' poll. After movies like 'Sarkar Raj', and 'Guru', actor Abhishek Bachchan is one to be taken seriously. And his 'mobile-service' ad has also contributed to his popularity quotient.

4. John Abraham

Actor John Abraham came fourth in the 'Youth Icon' poll.

The actor became the talk of the town when he did his 'butt' act in 'Dostana'. He was also hailed 'gay icon' and 'sexiest man in Asia'. John is known to endorse products that are very young – cola, motorbikes, jeans... His love for bikes and gadgets makes him 'cool' and helps him connect to a younger audience. His fetish for fitness, too, makes him the ideal choice.

5. Saif Ali Khan

Actor Saif Ali Khan makes it to the fifth position in the 'Youth Icon' poll.

The actor is more talked about today because of his rollicking affair with Kareena Kapoor. However, Saif has revamped himself on the big screen and is ahead in the 'race'. With pictures such as 'Race' and 'Omkara', Saif Ali Khan is sought after today. He has also embarked upon production by starting his own home production. His first will be a movie directed by Imtiaz Ali and starring Deepika Padukone.
