In India, where people love to watch movies and go crazy after film stars, it is natural for almost everybody to have role models, mimic their favourite stars and be inspired by them. Actresses in particular are adored, loved and looked upon as epitome of beauty. Men dream about these beauty queens and desire for them, while women are in awe of them and want to be 'like' them. With time, women have begun to idolise actresses who are not only beautiful, but also have made a niche for themselves and are 'women of substance'.
Whether it is Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Sridevi Kapoor, Kajol Devgn, Madhuri Dixit Nene, Sonam Kapoor or Vidya Balan - each of these heroines are not only great actresses, but have also set an example to the rest of the women in the country in many ways.
Since time immemorial, movie actors and actresses have inspired their audiences. People perceive their favourite film star as their role models and desire to be like them. Whether it be children or adult, film stars influence and inspire our lives in more than one way.

Nandita Das and Vidya Balan broke all stereotype and did unique and different character roles. Likewise, Shabana Azmi, Sharmila Tagore and Jaya Bachchaan have stood apart from their contemporaries and made a unique place for themselves in the minds of the moviegoers.
