Simple, progressive, intelligent and emotional — these are the qualities that Bollywood’s leading men feel make the ideal 21st century woman

John Abraham
“Indian women are among the most beautiful women in the world. And the fact that they are also intelligent gives them the X-factor. Modern Indian women are far more progressive than they are perceived to be.”

Emraan Hashmi
“For me, the ideal modern Indian woman is simple, yet determined. Her professional aspirations may be strong, but she is never complicated at heart. She is always ready to take on challenges.”

Varun Dhawan
“My ideal woman would be one who stands up for what she believes in. She would hit back if pushed against a wall. At the same time, she should have a soft, maternal side, so she can bring up her kids with the right values. She should be educated, because an educated woman can do wonders for her family.”

Sushant Singh Rajput
“The ideal Indian woman of the 21st century should be brave, independent and educated. She should be brave so she can face any situation, independent so she doesn’t need to rely on anyone and educated so she can empower herself.”

Neil Nitin Mukesh
“Be it a mother, sister, wife or girlfriend — there is nothing more attractive than a woman who follows her heart. According to me, the ideal woman is one who takes her own decisions in life. She doesn’t follow, she leads. She is strong, yet gentle; and never settles for anything less than what she wants.”

Vidyut Jamwal
“My ideal woman is one who follows her heart and beliefs. She should be able to stand her ground and protect herself and others. She charts her own life course and believes in leaving no stone unturned to fulfill her vision — a woman like this, according to me, is ideal not just for the 21st century, but for many more centuries to come.”

Sidharth Malhotra
“The ideal Indian woman should be progressive, emotionally intelligent and opinionated. She should have the power to create her own future and not succumb to the pressures of society.”
