Sonam wary of `youth style icon` tag
Mumbai: Stylish actress Sonam Kapoor is fearful of being called a fashion icon for the youth as she feels the tag comes with a lot of responsibilities.
"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," the 26-year-old actress said at a derby event here.
However, she feels it is more important to prove herself as a good citizen first.
"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," said Sonam.
Sonam turned up at the derby event clad in a coral red sari and donning silver jewellery. While most women doll up in dresses and a hat at a derby, Sonam decided to go unconventional.
"Everyone wears a predictable dress and hat and comes to the derby. I said why don`t I do it the old Indian style where they used to wear cotton and chiffon saris. That`s why I wore silver and coral," said the actress, who was recently seen in "Players".
Sonam is currently busy shooting for Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra`s "Bhaag Milkha Bhaag" and Rajkumar Santoshi`s untitled film.
