Hrithik Roshan tops Sexiest Asian Men 2011 list

Hrithik Roshan has emerged as the sexiest Asian Man in the World of the year 2011.
  
According to a survey conducted by the Eastern Eye Weekly, Hrithik, 37, beat off tough competition from high profile stars to top the 50-strong list.

The popular A-list actor won by the biggest ever margin in the history of the men's list to topple last year's winner Ranbir Kapoor.

Hrithik, who was third last year, got votes from all over the world from fans of different ages and cultures via social networking sites like Twitter.
   
Described by many as a Greek God, Hrithik went back to winning ways in 2011 playing the lead role in mega-hit movie
Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara and also had his wax statue added to the Madame Tussauds museum in London.
 
'He also shot for the hotly anticipated Agneepath remake, featured as a judge on hit TV show Just Dance and signed up for hotly anticipated superhero movie sequel Krrish 2,' the weekly said.

'Hrithik is a worthy winner and a leading man with global appeal. This year there was a massive gap between Hrithik and
the rest of the competitors. He is the perfect ambassador for India and someone who could take on anyone in Hollywood in
terms of looks, talent and likability,' said Asjad Nazir, Eastern Eye showbiz editor.
