These (the list) could be referred to as Dykons and mind you, that does not mean they are gay or that I am insinuating their sexuality–they are simply Bollywood stars who make excellent lesbian icons due to their strength, personality and various character portrayals. [Link]
Prerna at No Borders and Binaries has put up her list of Bollywood Lezzie icons. Somewhat similar to what I had posted couple of months ago…and I completely agree with her Lisa Ray selection. The woman is HOT to the core and add to that the “boldness” factor, I mean how many women in Bolly-land would dare to defy the set (pseudo) norms.
Nandita Das, spot on. Me thinks she is kinda-like Medha Patkar of the Hindi Film Industry. Sounds funny, I know but that’s the impression she exuberates.
Isha Koppikar and Priyanka Chopra….hmmm….okayish.
But Bipasha Basu. Now I know the woman has a long queue of Queer followers and she oozes with sexiness but…but there is just something very cold about her. Like someone who will slit your throat and not even flinch. Acting wise too, never found her to be impressive except for maybe in Omkara.
And my only other complain – why no Katrina Kaif? I mean…come on.
