Bollywood fans will unanimously agree that even at 39, Hrithik Roshan is still one of the hottest male stars in the industry. So it hardly comes as a surprise that Hrithik has topped the chart of Sexiest Male Celebrities, beating others like Salman Khan, Shah Rukh Khan and Akshay Kumar. One of the latest weekend polls by the consumer research company Ormax Media on Twitter has come up with the result.
Hrithik“While Hrithik beating Salman and Shah Rukh has come as a surprise, it was nothing less than shocking to see Ranbir Kapoor, who is being called the flavour of the season, at the bottom of the list,” says an industry insider.
But nonetheless, Hrithik is excited about the results. When contacted, the Krrish star says, “I am extremely humbled at the decision of the public. A big thank you to all for this dose of encouragement.” It’s interesting to note that Hrithik has topped the list in spite of not really being in the public eye much recently — the actor has only had two films — Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara (ZNMD; 2011) and Agneepath (2012) — in the last two years. Salman and Akshay, on the other hand, had multiple releases.
While Hrithik tops the men’s list, his ZNMD co-star Katrina Kaif beat off competition to emerge as the hottest actress. Other names that bring up the list are Kareena Kapoor, Deepika Padukone, Priyanka Chopra and Anushka Sharma.
Interestingly, Hrithik and Katrina star together in Siddharth Anand’s Hindi remake of Hollywood blockbuster Knight And Day (2010).
