Not surprisingly, three leading Hindi film heroines -- Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Deepika Padukone, Hrithik Roshan and Priyanka Chopra accepted the trophies in various categories of the first Videocon India Youth Icon Awards.

Joining these names were the likes of Rahul Gandhi and Jammu & Kashmir chief minister Omar Abdullah among others who were named youth icons of the year.
