London, Dec 13, 2017: 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.

Shahid has 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.

The highest placed TV star in the 14th edition of the long-running list is Vivian D’sena, who ranked fourth. Last year’s highest placed small screen star Ashish Sharma ranked fifth, while Fawad Khan is the highest placed Pakistani for the second year in a row in sixth.

The rest of the top 10 consists of Bollywood superstar Salman Khan, actors Gurmeet Choudhary and Ranveer Singh, and the only sportsman in the list, the newly married Virat Kohli.

The highest ranking newcomer in the 2017 edition of the list is young actor Mohsin Khan, who has been delighting fans on hit serial “Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai”.

The youngest in the list is 20-year-old singer and musician Danyal Zafar, who has entered the top 50 for the first time and is the younger brother of Pakistani superstar Ali Zafar.

The oldest in the list is once again 52-year-old Shah Rukh Khan.

Last week, Priyanka Chopra was named the Sexiest Asian Woman for the fifth time. (IANS)

Actor Ishaan Khatter, who is close to his brother and actor Shahid Kapoor, says he discusses his professional choices with him.

“In the past I have shared with my brother and mother about the work that I am going to do. I think if you are close to somebody, you tend to share something that is so important to you and films are a very important part of my life,” Ishaan said in a statement to IANS.

“And because he is part of the same industry, it is much easier for him to understand. He doesn’t demand that I share everything with him or my mother. But I like to share things with my mother and brother,” he added.

Ishaan made his film debut with Iranian filmmaker Majid Majidi’s “Beyond The Clouds”, but “Dhadak” marked Ishaan’s entry in Bollywood. An adaptation of Marathi hit “Sairat”, “Dhadak” marked the much-awaited Bollywood foray of Janhvi Kapoor. It will find its way on the Indian small screen on Sunday on Zee Cinema.

On his love for dance, he said: “Actually my mother was the first dancer in our family and she is the most accomplished of us all as a dancer. I don’t think I was even conscious that my brother was a dancer when I started dancing, I was very young.”

“I definitely share dance with him. We are very passionate about dance and he is the more experienced dancer. He has been a mentor and he has taught me dance a lot of different techniques. So he definitely is my teacher and mentor,” he added.
