Added by harini on Jan 25, 2012

Sonam Kapoor’s good fashion sense has earned her the title of a Fashion Icon. While many celebrities crave be called the same, Sonam Kapoor fears being called a fashion icon.

“It's only been four years since I have been in the industry, and if in such a short time someone calls you iconic, it is scary and overwhelming,” she said to a daily.

The actress also said that it was more important to be known as good citizen than a fashion icon.

“As long as I am a responsible adult and I am responsible as a youth or a style icon, and I don't take myself very seriously that Oh! I am so amazing, but be a responsible citizen and a good Indian, that is the most important thing,” Sonam Kapoor said.

While there is so much of hoopla going around the country about Indian being influenced by western culture, Sonam Kapoor sees nothing wrong in it.

“Values are usually universal...good values are universal. The west in not a devil coming to change our minds about certain things. Yes, we have amazing values in India which we should be very proud of. But I think its fine to get influenced by the world because the world is getting smaller in a lot of ways,” she said.

Sonam Kapoor believes that the future of India is bright because our country is youth centric.

“India is predominantly a youthful nation. When you are younger, you are more idealistic and you want to strive for a better future for ourselves. I think we have an amazing future because we are such a young nation,” she said.

The actress is currently busy working in Rakeysh Om Prakash Mehra's ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’ alongside Farhan Akhtar.
