Pakistani pop-star-turned-actor Ali Zafar has been named as one of the sexiest Asian men on the planet.


He is second only to Indian actor Hrithik Roshan who has been declared as the sexiest Asian man on the planet by a weekly magazine published from London which releases the list every year.


Eastern Eye showbiz editor Asjad Nazir, who puts together the very popular list and is chairman of the judging panel, said despite having the best physique, those voting for Hrithik were impressed by a lot of his other qualities.


The Indian actor beat Ali Zafar who was the surprise runner up. Salman Khan finished third and last year’s runner Shahid Kapoor came fourth. Hrithik topped the list of the 50 Sexiest Asian Men in The World for the second year in a row.


Bollywood newcomer Sidharth Malhotra was the highest new entry at fifth place and narrowly beat off popular TV star Kushal Tandon who was sixth. Shah Rukh joined the list at seventh place and was followed by John Abraham at eight and Ranbir at nine.


Other Pakistanis in the list are British-Pakistani boy band star from One Direction Zayn Malik (12) and Atif Aslam (20).
