In the latest poll conducted by the esteemed tabloid Hindustan Times, Bollywood heart throb Salman Khan has been voted the ‘Sexiest Man Alive’ by the youths of the country. Thousands of readers cast their votes to crown the indisputably hottest Khan who has also become the most ‘Wanted’ actor for the producers (given his recent box office records). Garnering over 28% votes, Salman edged past the likes of Rahul Gandhi and Hrithik Roshan who stood 2nd and 3rd on the list respectively.
Sexiest Woman Alive: Amongst the fairer sex, the princess of popcorn Miss Katrina Kaif had no competition as she thumped in over 33% votes to earn the coveted title of ‘Sexiest Woman Alive’. She left runners-up Angelina Jolie far behind in the race since Brad Pitt’s sinewy muse could only garner 15.3% votes. Dusky siren Bipasha Basu rounded off the top three.
It is indeed ironic that the sexiest man and sexiest woman alive (as per today’s youth) were a head-over-heels couple only till months ago. Had Salman and his ex ‘Partner’ Katrina not broken up, they would have, inarguably, been the sexiest couple on the planet.
Top Role Models: Meanwhile, in another category titled ‘Top role models’, actor Shahrukh Khan elbowed past APJ Abdul Kalam to claim the crown. With 15.4% votes in his kitty, he was marginally ahead of the former Indian President (14.8%). The ‘God of Cricket’ occupied the 3rd rung of the ladder with 11.3% votes.
Aw, you are wondering who is the ‘God of cricket’? Oh, the horror!
It is also intriguing in a way. Shahrukh Khan, who is a chain smoker, makes song-n-dance routine films, at times even staidly dull ones like Ra One, gets more votes than an erudite person like Kalam or an impeccably humble Tendulkar! Surely, today’s youths need to sort out their priorities!
