Bollywood's heartthrob Hrithik Roshan topped the 50 Sexiest Asian Men in the world for the second year in a row. The AGNEEPATH star beat off tough competition from around the world and won by an even bigger margin than last year as he received votes from all over the world from continents that included Asia, Europe, Africa and South America from fans of all ages and different cultures. The poll was conducted by popular weekly newspaper.
Even though he was the hot favourite and led right from the beginning, the win came as a major surprise to Indian cinema's hottest pin up. Hrithik said, 'I am extremely humbled at the public's decision, also a little embarrassed as I just can't imagine myself as sexy! I'm actually someone who's just trying to get by with his battered, bruised and broken tools. So a big thanks to all, for this dose of encouragement!''
Hrithik who is working on hotly anticipated superhero film KRRISH2 has become one of the most sought after names in cinema, television and by big brand endorsements. He beat Pakistani pop star turned actor Ali Zafar who was the surprise runner up. Salman Khan finished third and last year's runner up Shahid Kapoor came fourth.
A panelist mentioned that despite having the best physique, those voting for Hrithik were impressed by a lot of his other qualities. He said, ''Although guys and girls from different age groups, cultures and countries pushed Hrithik to the top of the list they all pin-pointed different qualities that make him the sexiest man on the planet. Whilst some were impressed by his physique and good looks, others liked that he is humble, a devoted family man, father and hardworking individual. This not only makes Hrithik the perfect role model, but the dream man of women around the world and some men are aspiring to be like. The mass global appeal means it will only be a matter of time before he becomes an even bigger international star.''
