Superstars Hrithik Roshan & Priyanka Chopra come out tops in a special poll on the sexiest man & woman alive in India this year. For this daunting task, we decided to take the help of some experts and picked a panel of five men and five women, all renowned in their fields.
Our panel of women included Monikangana Dutta (a model par excellence in hot demand on international ramps), Shilpa Gupta (the Mumbai-based artist known for her versatility in expression), Mehr Jessia (former supermodel who currently runs a modelling agency), Preity Zinta (the feisty queen of Bollywood) and Sunidhi Chauhan (the voice of the stars).
For our men, we turned to Subi Samuel (the management graduate-turned-ace photographer whose eye for detail has stars lined up to be snapped by him), Arjun Khanna (the designer known for his colourful menswear collections), John Abraham (the actor who recently made one of the hottest pin-up pictures in Bollywood history), Milind Soman (Bollywoods thinking actor) and Rohit Bal (the maverick Delhi-based designer). After careful selection of our finalists, Team Speak Up conducted a poll where 500 men and women of Mumbai voted from our panellists pick. Here you have it drum roll please Indias sexiest woman Priyanka Chopra and sexiest man Hrithik Roshan. While Priyanka beat the likes of Priyanka Gandhi and Sania Mirza, Hrithik scored over Salman Khan and Yuvraj Singh, amongst others.
