Though we are aware that Bollywood and the Indian TV industry are two completely different entities, yet we can’t keep ourselves away from drawing comparisons between B-Town celebs and small screen stars. Celebrities of B-Town are well known for ruling India, Asia and the World as they never fail to impress us with their charm, fashion sense and gorgeous avatars. Needless to say, they have been winning million hearts for years now. But looks like these gorgeous ladies and gentlemen have competition.

If you’re wondering if these Bollywood celebs are facing competition from stars from the foreign land, then you’ve got it all wrong; their competitors are none other than our desi celebs from small-screen. Yes, B-Town divas and hunks are facing competition from the TV world and I am not saying this but the Sexiest Asian Men/ Women List 2017 does. Surprised? Well, the annual poll of Sexiest Asian Women and Men is out and it proves it all. The top 10 list had not one but at least four television celebrities. Let’s take a look at the top 5 TV actors, who have left the Bollywood biggies behind in the race.

Nia Sharma

Nia Sharma, who shot to fame with Jamai Raja where she essayed the character Roshni in the soap opera Jamai Raja, was ranked the third Sexiest Asian Woman last year. She is one position up this year (2017) at No. 2 has beaten some Bollywood A-Listers such as Deepika Padukone, Alia Bhat, Mahira Khan, Shraddha Kapoor and Katrina Kaif. While last year Deepika ranked second in the list, Nia has left her behind in the race this year.

Vivian Dsena


In the list of Sexiest Asian Men, Vivian Dsena, who is currently seen in Colors’ much-celebrated show Shakti Astitva Ek Ehsaas, is ranked fourth on the list, while Vivian was in the eighth position last year. These TV actresses are only scaling up the ladder, year after year. What’s more shocking is that the actor has left the Pakistani actor Fawad Khan behind in the race, who is on number 6 in the list of Sexiest Asian Men 2017.

Ashish Sharma


TV heartthrob Ashish Sharma, who shot to fame with Colors’ another popular show Rangrasiya, has taken the fifth spot on the list of Sexiest Asian Men 2017. While last year, Ashish was in the fourth position, the actor has dropped down to the fifth spot this year. Guess who has beaten him, not a B-town A-lister but a television star. Yes, Vivian Dsena, who was on the 8th spot last year beats Ashish in sex appeal.

Gauahar Khan


Gauahar Khan, who appeared in Bigg Boss season 7, has defeated most of the Bollywood stars except Priyanka Chopra, Deepika Padukone, Alia Bhat, Shraddha Kapoor and Katrina Kaif. Yes, Gauahar Khan, who won Bigg Boss 7, is at no. 5 this year. Shocked?
