But strip queen Sherlyn Chopra took the cake away when she was labeled 'Bollywood legend' by American men's magazine - Playboy.
Raj Kapoor, Nargis Dutt, Rajesh Khanna, Meena Kumari, RD Burman, Kishore Kumar and a galaxy of stars must have groaned in their peaceful grave when Playboy magazine called Sherlyn Bollywood's legend.
Living salwarts of the Indian cinema like Dilip Kumar, Lata Mageshkar, Amitabh Bachchan have got the coveted title after serving Indian cinema for a long time with their incredible talent and hard work.
Then comes Sherlyn Chopra, who gets the tag by sheer audacity of shedding clothes.
Sherlyn, found fame posting nude images of self on Twitter, till she hit the jackpot. She became the first Indian model to pose nude on the cover of Playboy magazine for 2013.
In a stark contrast to this American adulation of a B-grade actor, British journalist Sir David Frost calls Aishwarya Rai 'the Queen of Bollywood'.
One of the most beautiful women in the world, Aishwarya is an actress of international credibility; she worked as a model before starting her acting career and ultimately won Miss World pageant titles in 1994.
David Frost is a name to reckon with in the world of television and journalism.
Till date he has interviewed every President of the United States.
In 1977, Frost had cornered one of the most powerful men in US, Richard Nixon. His judgment and credibility is without doubt.
After a lifetime at the forefront of television Sir David Frost travels the globe and explores the world of some of its most important newsmakers. He traveled all the way to Mumbai, India to interview Aishwarya.
Frost explains his choosing Ash, “Juxtaposed against changes sweeping through India, her arrival on the scene and her films has undoubtedly made a significant impact.”
The West is looking towards East and to be precise beauty of an Indian woman. A master of fashion and luxurious taste, Italian designer Roberto Cavalli finds Indian women beautiful, elegant, sophisticated and sensual.
As the interest of West persist we witness one heroine who acquires international fame for her body of work - Aishwarya Rai.
Another gets focused only for her body - Sherlyn Chopra. She will be seen as a leading lady in Kama Sutra, a movie that will be made in 3D
So who do you think should be crowned as the queen of Bollywood or the legend of Bollywood? Is it Aishwarya Rai or is it Sherlyn Chopra?
