The list of top 50 sexiest Asian men has been released by a London-based newspaper Eastern Eye . Stealing the limelight, British Pakistani singer Zayn Malik has been named as Asia’s sexiest man with rank one. Many TV actors such as Ashish Sharma and Barun Sobti have also made it to the top of the list, but the real surprise comes with the new Pakistani heartthrob Arshad Khan (Chaiwala) who has got rank 31. PTI quotes Asjad Nazir of Eastern Eye saying,
”The singer/songwriter showed comprehensively there was life after boy band One Direction with a rip-roaring start to his solo career. It was as if he struck a match, casually threw it at the world and stepped back to watch a wildfire sweep across the continents with his songs burning up the charts.”
He has since been plucked from obscurity and gained global media attention along with a new career in modelling. He makes the list for representing the everyday man and for showing the most impossible dream can come,” PTI quotes Nazir as saying.
