2016 hasn't really been a good year for Hrithik Roshan, but this news should bring him some cheer. The actor has been declared among the top five sexiest Asian men of 2016 by a UK-based newspaper, The Eastern Eye. The actor was just pipped to the number one spot by pop star, Zayn Malik. 

In his race to the top, Roshan pipped Shahid Kapoor, Ranveer Singh, Salman Khan, and the recent phenomenon of Fawad Khan in the top 10 list. Fawad kept him close company in the 3rd position, while Salman's Sultan performance saw him return to the top five. Padmavati co-stars, Singh and Shahid Kapoor show up at numbers 7 and 10 respectively. 

After the very public spat with Kangana Ranaut, the failure of his period epic, Mohenjo Daro, this news should add some buzz to his next, Kaabil. Roshan has always been one of the fitter stars in the industry, with his physique earning him the sobriquet of a 'Greek God'. However, the actor would hope that the next year would bring better luck as far as his acting is concerned.
