Hrithik Roshan’s godly sex appeal is known not just to Indians but the world in general, so it’s pretty obvious that the list of ‘50 Sexiest Asian Men’ alive belongs to him. However, beating this obvious choice and the previous two-time winner is former One Direction star and teenage heartthrob Zayn Malik. He was voted as the sexiest Asian man alive by a UK-based weekly newspaper Eastern Eye.
Not only is he the youngest celebrity to top the list ever, but Zayn’s ginormous fan-base made sure to send votes in millions to secure him the most coveted title, from the ninth position last year.
“Leaving One Direction did no damage at all to Zayn. From social networking sites to global media, everyone was talking about Zayn this year. Whether it was his haircuts, love life, solo career or life after One Direction, he had the kind of mass interest globally never seen before for an Asian celebrity. He has also established arguably the most multi-cultural fan base in the world and this was illustrated by the diversity of those who voted in force for him from around the world. And he did all this without an official solo single release. The prospect of what he can achieve when his official debut single releases is mind-blowing,” said Asjad Nasir, the editor of Eastern Eye.
