Hrithik Roshan tops ‘Sexiest Asian Man’ poll

In an online survey conducted by a London-based weekly, Bollywood hunk Hrithik Roshan has been crowed as the "sexiest Asian man in the world". For the second time in a row, the 38 year old actor has emerged as the winner of Asian sexiest man poll. He won the place by defeating Bollywood stars like Shahrukh Khan, Salman Khan, Akshay Kumar, John Abraham and Ranbir Kapoor.

"The star of 2012 hit Agneepath 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 Eastern Eye Newspaper said in a release.

Hrithik Roshan thanked the Eastern Eye readers who voted for him. "I am extremely humbled at the decision of the public, also a little embarrassed as I just cant imagine myself as sexy! Im actually someone whos just trying to get by with his battered, bruised and broken tools. So a big thank you to all for this dose of encouragement! Thank you Eastern Eye readers for this very sweet recognition," said Hrithik.

Hrithik bagged the position by defeating Pakistani singer-turned-actor Ali Zafar. He stood second. Salman Khan had to satisfy with the third position and last year runner up Shahid Kapoor came fourth. Debutante Sidharth Malhotra is the new entry to the list and he stood fifth. Popular TV star Kushal Tandon  came sixth. Shahrukh Khan achieved the seventh place and was followed by John Abraham who stood eight and Ranbir at nine.

Eastern Eye showbiz editor Asjad Nazir reasoned Hrithik’s victory. He said that despite liking his best physique, readers voted Hrithik impressed with lots of his other qualities.
