PIX: India's favourite pin-up stars
Move over Pamela Anderson, these hotties make India drool.
On Friday we continued with our list of hotties who've made Indian men sweat under their collars and weak in their knees.
In part three of our four-part series we bring you...
None of us would've thought of Minissha Lamba as a hottie in a bikini had it not been for that hideous film called Kidnap!
Minnisha started her career as a Kashmiri girl in a film called Yahaan.
And while she is best known for her role as one of Ranbir's angels in Bachna Ae Haseeno her bikini moment came in his arch rival Imran Khan's film.
Around the time of the film's release Minissha also did this hot photo shoot for Maxim India and had us begging for more.

The Reddy sisters may well be the only siblings to be featured in a list like this.
Of the three, Sameera has been most exposed to the Indian masses thanks to the movies. But Sushma (who's done a few forgettable roles) is someone we really can't take our eyes off.
Watch that Limca commercial and you'll know why.

Now Lara Dutta has always been the drool-wrothy types -- one you'd like to see dancing in the rains in little else but a sari.
Following in on Shilpa Shetty's footsteps, the hottie has also turned something of yoga model recently.
We're waiting for the DVD and intend to watch it in slow-mo... real slow-mo.

Something about female athletes is simply irresistible. And tennis girls, it seems, have a special place.
When you think of it, you'd be surprised at how many tennis stars you would have drooled over in all your years of growing up.
From Steffi Graf, Monica Seles and Jennifer Capriati to Maria Sharapova, Martina Hingis and Sania Mirza -- we really shouldn't be complaining when our girlfriends call us skirt chasers.
Arguably the hottest body on the court, Anna Kournikova has all but stopped playing the game that made her so famous and was recently spotted wearing a wedding ring (she's been with singer Enrique Iglesias for over eight years now).
But that doesn't stop us from dreaming about her now, does it?

Let's admit it, there are few things sexier than a supermodel in the kitchen.
So putting Padma Lakshmi before the camera and making her host a cooking reality show, was clearly a stroke of genius.
Unsurprisingly the supermodel and former Mrs Rushdie has been the most successful host of Top Chef. We guess it also helps the ratings when your host is quite a dish herself.

The 33-year-old Latino singing sensation Shakira, has been around for the longest time on the music scene (her first album released in 1990). But that hasn't hampered her popularity and drool quotient one bit.
We're not sure how many of us really understand her songs but we definitely love the jacket covers of her CDs! Now why else would we buy her music?
Watch out for the final part in our series on the hottest pin-up girls of our times on Tuesday.
