2. Hrithik Roshan (Jodhaa Akbar)
Hrithik Roshan started the year in stunning form, alongside Aishwarya Rai Bachchan (her of the world’s sexiest eyes) in Jodhaa Akbar, rescuing Bollywood from what was beginning to look like a truly disastrous year. This performance alone is enough to ensure his inclusion in this year’s list. He then spent the rest of the year working hard on his US-based movie Kites – together with Mexican beauty Barbara Mori and Kangana Ranaut, apparently in her sexy avatar (okay, I’m hooked – book me those tickets now!) – and also a quickie appearance in the movie Luck by Chance which is released next month. Pin-up boy Hrithik is very clear about what he’s looking for in a woman: “Jessica Rabbit from Who Framed Roger Rabbit (1988). I thought she was really hot!” he says. Actually, so did I.
