Time's Most Desirable list was out a few days back. They say the one who causes you to lust after him possesses the desirability quotient. Voting was conducted among lakhs of Indians who chose the top 50 Most Desirable men in India.
It was sad and shocking to see Hrithik Roshan on rank 2, he was
beaten by Telugu super star Mahesh Babu who went from rank 2 in 2012
to rank 1 in 2013 list. Telugu star Mahesh Babu is called Prince
down South for a reason. It's the actor's regal looks and his suave
ways that make him popular. He is married to Bollywood actress
Namrata Shirodkar and his desirability quotient lies in his boyish
charm. He has also earned another nickname - Milk Boy - and with
his six pack abs, this cute boy seems to ave transformed into a
On spot two is our very own Greek God Hrithik Roshan, we need
not define his desirability quotient for the man has it all. Great
looks, six pack abs, hit films and everything. The actor has off
late been in lime light owing to his personal life problems. That
instant feeling of desire is what makes the person climb the charts
on the 50 Most Desirable.
It's has got nothing to do with success, good looks, popularity
and fan following of the celebrity, it is purely based on the
desirability quotient for that year. If someone tops the chart one
year, there's no guarantee he or she will be in the Top 10 the next
year. In fact this year onwards, they have created a separate list
for those who will be Forever Desirable. Men like Salman Khan,
Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir Khan, Akshay Kumar. Women like Aishwarya Rai
- Bachchan, Kareena Kapoor Khan - they will stay forever beautiful,
forever desired. The separate listing of the stars who're Forever
Desirable shall make room for more new entrants who could be
possible winners in the future and surprise entrants based on their
body of work.
It's not just restricted to our Bollywood industry, the list
truly name Indian most Desirable Men from every field possible.
Virat Kohli and mahindra Singh dhoni too feature on this list. But
we are hoping to list out the Bollywood actors who featured on
India's 50 Most Desirable List.
Hrithik Roshan -Rank 2
India's very own Greek God was in his most loved avatar as a
Superhero in the sci fi movie 'Krrish 3'. It was a Diwali release
& it broke most records at the box office. Hrithik Roshan's
larger than life persona in 'Krrish 3' where he does everything to
saving lives to helping people to dancing to romance got a
tremendous response from the audiences, fans as well as critics.
The hot hunk gave a scare to his fans when he had to go for brain
surgery, though all is well now.
Farhan Akhtar-Rank 3
He lived, breathed & pursued 'Milkha'. Yes, its Farhan
Akhtar who gave a performance of a lifetime with 'Bhaag Milkha
Bhaag'. Right from taking lessons from the legend himself,
following a strict workout & getting under the skin of the
character to play the role, Farhan deserves hundred percent kudos
for being the Milkha of our times. Not to mention, the perfect
physique he acquired for his role, which had many women swooning
over him. On the filmmaking front he produced 'Fukrey' & is now
concentrating more on his acting assignments.
Ranveer Singh-Rank 5
Ranveer Singh had his first release of 2013 with 'Lootera' where
he played a conman. Then came his dream role of playing Ram in
Sanjay Leela Bansali's 'Ram Leela' where his physique, acting &
on screen chemistry with Deepika were the highs of the film. He is
mum on his relationship status with Deepika but has been spotted
with the actress even in NY.
Ranbir Kapoor-Rank 6
Bollywood's true rockstar, Ranbir Kapoor had a blockbuster start
to 2013 with 'Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani'. Not only did it create a
lot of buzz for bringing together ex lovers Ranbir and Deepika, the
film became a rage & became the highest grosser in Ranbir's
career. Next was the much hyped Ranbir starrer 'Besharam' where he
shared screen space with his parents Rishi Kapoor & Neetu
Singh. But the movie sank without a trace. But other than that,
Ranbir splashed the tabloids when pictures of him and Katrina
holidaying in Ibiza were leaked. Question him & he maintains a
dignified silence. The heart throb has been signed on by top brands
as their brand ambassadors & has signed interesting mix of
Arjun Rampal -Rank7
This hot hunk had a variety of releases in 2013. It started with
'Inkaar' where he plays the suave CEO of an ad agency who is
accused of sexual harassment. Then, in the action thriller 'D Day'
Arjun played an intense cold blooded assassin who is responsible
for his own actions & is on a mission to bring back India's
most wanted man. A role where his brooding intensity made him look
hotter than ever. And there was 'Satyagraha', where he played a
John Abraham-Rank 8
Handsome hunk, John Abraham had a long line up of movie releases
in 2013. First was 'Race 2', where John looked stylish to the hilt.
This was followed by his metrosexual role in 'I me aur Main'. Then
came John in a completely grunge avatar in his role as Manya Surve
in 'Shootout At Wadala'. And last was the controversial film that
he produced & acted in, 'Madras Cafe' . Though John dismissed
it as a work of fiction some political parties protested its
release. It was all about his image, his tough guy look, his
struggle & it was a delight to see John in new light.
Aditya Roy Kapoor- Rank 9
In 2013's blockbuster hit, 'Aashiqui 2', Aditya Roy Kapur played
a fading singer whose angst and struggle he portrayed with so much
earnest that it melted many hearts right away. And the lead pair,
Aditya & Shraddha's onscreen romance hit the right chord with
the youngsters. Earlier in 2013, Aditya also impressed with his
role in 'Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani'. Clearly, a young talent who is
turning into quite a national heartthrob.
Shahid Kapur -Rank 10
Finally after a string of flops, chocolate boy Shahid Kapoor
bounced back in 2013 with two releases. First was 'Phata Poster
Nikhla Hero' where Shahid Kapoor dreams of becoming an actor which
had him doing comedy & action. Then in 'R Rajkumar' he teamed
up with Prabhudeva who showcased his dancing skills and action
finesse & got him a much a deserved hit. Shahid's one line
dialogues were a huge hit. And of course, good news for all the
ladies out there is that he is still single!
Siddharth Malhotra -Rank 11
Through 2013, this 'Student of The Year' star was riding high on
the success of his movie released in 2012. He was performing at
award functions, busy on endorsement sprees & his single status
was keeping the girls hooked on their feet. In 2013, he was
shooting for Karan Johar's 'Hasee Toh Phasee' opposite Parineeti
Chopra & has signed 'The Villain'.
Surya – Rank 12
This South superstar roared like a lion in 2013 at the box
office. He had a sequel to his previous hit 'Singam' with 'Singam
2'. This time there was more action, more romance, more comedy
& more dhamaka songs with Surya's signature style &
effortless acting. He has been seen in many commercials & also
sang for the first time in a coffee commercial.
Varun Dhawan -Rank 14
He entered Bollywood with a bang in 'Student of The Year' in
2012. Though he didn't have a single release in 2013, he was
constantly in the limelight. First it was performing at award
functions & with endorsements. He shot for his dad David
Dhawan's 'Main Tera Hero' & has also signed big banner films
produced by the likes of Karan Johar.
Sushant Singh Rajput – Rank 16
This television star made his Bollywood debut with the much
acclaimed 'Kai Po Che' in 2013. Next was 'Shuddh Desi Romance'
which was a toss-up between live-in relationships and marriages.
Sushant set the record by kissing 27 times on screen. On the
personal front, he has always been open about his relationship with
Ankita Lokhande. He has also signed films like Shekhar Kapur's
'Paani' where he will be playing the lead role.
Vidyut Jamwal- Rank 17
He's certainly the Bruce Lee of Bollywood. With his style,
physique, attitude & looks he has taken action to a new level.
Hence, 2013's 'Commando' was solely dependent on him as the lead
hero & he was the reason why everyone came to watch the movie.
From death defying stunts to chases, he's done it all & stunned
everyone. He worked hard & gave it all for this role. In
'Bullett Raja' he had a cameo where he was specially required to do
Arjun Kapoor – Rank 20
This 'Ishaqzaade' star had a solo release in 2013 playing a
double role in 'Aurangzeb'. He delivered a strong performance in
both the characters in this fast paced potboiler. He has also shot
for 'Gunday' & is shooting for '2 States' opposite Alia Bhatt
where he plays a geek. He maintains that he talks less & let
his work speak. His fans just love his intense eyes & cool
Saif Ali Khan – Rank 21
The dapper Chote Nawab had an interesting mix of films in 2013.
It started with 'Race 2' where he continues to play the suave guy
who wants to avenge the death of his wife. He was stylish in every
sense. In 'Go Goa Gone', Saif experimented with a new look, new
accent & a new concept altogether. Then, finally there was
'Bullett Raja' where he played a rustic macho gangster to the
Ali Zafar- Rank 22
A hot favorite among the ladies, Ali Zafar, had only one release
in 2013 with 'Chashme Baddoor'. Adding to his boyish good looks
& charm onscreen, he even lent his voice to the songs. Ali
Zafar has also been crowned the sexiest Asian on planet of 50
Sexiest Asian Men in The World.
Ram Charan Teja- Rank 23
In 2013, this Telugu superstar was the centre of attraction in
Bollywood as he was stepping into the shoes of Big B by reprieving
his role in 'Zanjeer'. Though the film was in the news from the
time it was announced, curiosity grew once the release date began
to approach. When the film arrived it was well received in Andhra
and though Ram Charan gave his best, comparisons to the original
were inevitable. And though, Bollywood fans didn't quite bite the
bait, Ram Charan's oozing sex appeal won him even more female
Dhanush- Rank 25
The 'Kolaveri Di' Star who's a big name down South made his
Bollywood debut with 'Raanjhanaa' & gained even more fans with
his brilliant screen presence. Down South, he had 'Mariyan' in a
role where he shares a deep bond with the sea & the film is set
in 2 different continents. Dhanush's power packed performance &
dialogues are to watch out for in the film. And last is a rural
comedy 'Naiyaandi' which has crazy situations, romance &
Emraan Hashmi- Rank 26
The serial kisser of Bollywood had a couple of releases in 2013.
His 1st release was 'Ek Thi Daayan' in which he was the central
character surrounded by beautiful girls. He played a magician whose
life was falling apart & he can't get rid of hallucinations
that plague him. In 'Ghanchakkar' his pairing opposite Vidya Balan
was different. He had selective amnesia. He played the character
with poise. He is hardly seen out at public functions or events
& is a very private person.
Ayushman Khurana- Rank 28
VJ turned actor, Ayushman Khurana had one release in 2013 with
'Nautanki Saala'. He played an actor & theatre director who
played Raavan on stage where the character & comedy took more
precedence than the star persona. He even sang in the film. His
acting skills have earned him a film with Yashraj films.
Ajay Devgn- Rank 30
2013 was a mixed bag for Ajay Devgn with two films, brand
endorsements & signing new films like 'Singham 2' & 'Action
Jackson'. His first release was the much hyped 'Himmatwala' where
Ajay did everything from action to romance to dancing to comedy but
the film was too old fashioned to fly with the audience. Yet Ajay
was it's only saving grace. His next release was 'Satyagraha' which
also got a tepid response from the audience. Though 2013 was
lukewarm for Ajay, he will be back in 2014 with Rohit Shetty in
'Singham 2' & Prabhu Deva's next 'Action Jackson'.
