As Mallika Sherawat hopes to find the love of her life in Bachelorette India, we are asking you, our readers to vote for India's hottest single woman.

Mallika Sherawat's brand new stunt, Bachelorette India is on. While she is being wooed by some eligible young men, we thought it might be a good time to take a look at some of India's most eligible young women who any man would consider fortunate to be snagged by.

So tell us if you had the chance, who would you love to date? Tell us who you think is the nation's most eligible single woman you'd go out of your way to woo!

We start out with Ileana D'Cruz who after making it big in south Indian language films, is hoping for a long stint in Bollywood after Barfi and Phata Poster... Even so, the young lady continues to remain unattached. With a promising career ahead, there are plenty of takers for this young lady.

When you have the genes of one of cricket's greatest players and one of India's finest (not to mention feisty) actresses, it's sort of difficult not to stand out.

We end the list with the feisty badminton player Jwala Gutta who took on the Badminton Association of India and won her right to play./p>

The BAI had withdrawn Gutta and her doubles partner, Ashwini Ponnappa, from the Denmark Open.

The BAI's disciplinary committee had recommended a life ban on Gutta for trying to stop some players of her franchise, Krrish Delhi Smashers, from playing a match against Banga Beats in the Indian Badminton League in August.

Gutta, who was once married to the Arjuna awardee Chetan Anand and has been linked to former India cricket captain Mohd Azaruddin, is a spunky young lady with an interesting family tree.

Born in Wardha, Maharashtra and raised in Hyderabad, Gutta's father, Kranti is Indian while mother, Yelan is Chinese. Yelan came to India along with her grandfather, a Gandhian to visit the Sevagram Ashram, Wardha, translated the Mahatma's autobiography and other works into Mandarin before eventually staying back.

We can't help but admire the 30-something shuttler who’s managed to find a way to stay in the news for reasons good and bad. Do you too?
