Around the same time last month, Padmaavat star Shahid Kapoor was declared the sexiest Asian man alive by UK based magazine, Eastern Eye. The actor was followed by Hrithik Roshan at number 2, singer and songwriter Zayn Malik at number 3, next by TV actor Vivian Dsena, and another television star Ashish Sharma at number 5 and Fawad Khan at number 6! And now, Hrithik Roshan has trumped Shahid and a lot of other Bollywood and Hollywood hunks to emerge as one of the most handsome actors in 2018.

The actor, who rang in his 44th birthday on January 10 and announced Krrish 4 for Christmas 2020, won the title by World’s Top Most. Roshan won the fifth spot, with the likes of Robert Pattinson (first) and Prince William (fourth) ahead of him and beating Chris Evans (seventh), Omar Borkan Al Gala (eighth) and Tom Hiddleston (tenth). Interestingly, there is another list on the site which has Hrithik topping the list with 2. Brad Pitt, 3. Godfrey Gao, 4. Robert Pattinson and Salman Khan on the seventh position.

It is amazing to see how our Indian stars are trumping against some of the most known and loved faces from the world over. This also talks about how their popularity is transcending boundaries. On the work front, Hrithik is soon to start shooting for Super 30, mathematician Anand Kumar’s biopic and he is also set to start on the untitled YRF film which also stars Tiger Shroff and Vaani Kapoor.

While the past year has been one where the actor’s controversial personal life and relationship with Kangana Ranaut discussed in the media more than his work, we hope the year 2018 is where his work is the focus.
