The bollywood stylish actor and dancer Hrithik Roshan created magic with his entry in 2000, as he has been voted the Sexiest Asian Male of 2019 as well as the last decade in an online poll released in London on Wednesday.
The 45-year-old actor, who has had box-office hits like War and Super 30 this year, topped the annual ‘Sexiest Asian Male’ ranking compiled by British news weekly Eastern Eye, based on votes from film fans around the world, heat generated on social networking sites as well as wider impact over the year.
Roshan scored a double win as he topped the overall ranking for the last 10 years as well.”I would like to thank everyone who feels so and has voted for me; I am flattered,” said Roshan, as he stressed that he did not view it as an “achievement”.
He said: “Just a person’s looks are not relevant in the larger scheme of things. I don’t judge people by the way they look. Similarly, I don’t judge myself either by the way I look. What is attractive in a person is his/her story, journey and the way that person has dealt with situations in his/her own life. Looking a certain way for my characters is just a part of my job, which takes a lot of effort and hard work.”
However, the 2017 winner Shahid Kapoor bagged the second place, with television actor Vivian D’sena ranking third. Action hero Tiger Shroff made his debut in the top 10 at No. 4 and British Asian popstar Zayn Malik completed the top 5 for 2019.
Besides Roshan, the top 10 for the decade is dominated by actors and singers except Indian cricket captain Virat Kohli, who is ranked seventh.
