Bollywood actor Shahid Kapoor has been named the Sexiest Asian Man in a poll, dethroning singer Zayn Malik who has been winning the title for the past two years.

The Haider actor topped Eastern Eye’s 2017 list of 50 Sexiest Asian Men in the world. Last year, he ranked seventh. Expressing surprise, the Udta Punjab star dedicated the title to his fans who voted for him.

“I would like to thank everyone who voted for me. I am humbled by the desirable tag. I believe sexy is not only to do with the physical, but as much to do with the mental perspective on life. This one is for all those fans who have loved and supported me,” Shahid said in a statement.

Actor Hrithik Roshan ranked second for the third year in a row, with Zayn Malik falling to number three.

    @Pavati Chaudhry:
    Who were you thinking of, Jack Ma ? Jokes aside, its a habit of SE Asians and NE Asians to exclude South Asia and other western parts of Asia when considering what’s “Asian”. I guess in a similar vein South Asia is now returning the compliment. However a man who underwent a nose job,yes, Shahid Kapoor, should, in my mind, be given a lesser ranking than others represented in their natural selves. Recommend

    Eastern Eye is an Indian publication out of England, which explains the biased ranking system favoring Indians followed by former Indians. I guess India is a world unto itself, where there is no room for billions of other Asians. Recommend
