PIX: Hrithik, Salman Are Asia's SEXIEST Men!
Hrithik Roshan, who topped the Sexiest Asian Men list of Eastern Eye Weekly last year, came out on top in the weekly's annual list for 2012 as well.
The actor, who had a blockbuster of a beginning this year with his film Agneepath raking in over Rs 100 crore at the box office, will be next seen in yet another high profile film -- his home production Krissh 3.
A suitably surprised Hrithik responded to his win, 'I am extremely humbled at the decision of the public, also a little embarrassed as I just can't imagine myself as sexy! I'm actually someone who's just trying to get by with his battered, bruised and broken tools. So a big thank you to all for this dose of encouragement!'
Several other Indian celebs -- some regular fixtures and others making their debut -- also feature in the list.
Here's looking at the HOTTEST Indian actors in Asia!

16. Emraan Hashmi
The star of the year so far, however, is Emraan Hashmi, who went from being a Bhatt camp loyalist to a bankable star with hits like Jannat 2 and Raaz 3.
His turn as the sleazeball porn filmmaker in Dibakar Banerjee's Shanghai won him many accolades as well.

Imran Khan, who we see next in Vishal Bhardwaj's delightful-looking Matru Ki Bijli Ka Mandola after the successful romcom Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu, is full of surprises as an actor.
It's hardly surprising to see this gentleman with impeccable dressing sense and manners on this list.
