Katrina again

Bollywood beauty Katrina Kaif has been named the Sexiest Woman in the World for the third year in a row, beating off competition from her contemporaries like Freida Pinto and Priyanka Chopra.

“I”m very happy that I have made it to the top of Eastern Eye”s list again. England is off course a very special place to me and I think it”s very sweet to be voted the sexiest by them. I just want to thank everyone for the support,” said the 26-year-old actress.

The list was calculated on the basis of the most photographed women in the world and the most in-demand with film producers and fans. ‘Although Bollywood heroines dominated the top 10, the list for 2010 included stunning beauty pageant winners, top actresses from around the world, pop stars and TV personalities. That is why Katrina should be deservedly proud of her amazing win,’ Eastern Eye showbiz editor Asjad Nazir said.

Priyanka Chopra narrowly missed out on the top spot by finishing second for the second year in a row. Pakistani actress Mehwish Hayat came eighth, a spot behind Kareena Kapoor.

Bipasha Basu occupied the third spot and Freida Pinto, India’s most popular export to Hollywood only managed a fourth position, while Lara Dutta rounded off the top five.

Katrina Kaif was born in Hong Kong to a Kashmiri father and British mother. She spent her childhood in Hawaii and later moved to England. She first came to the notice of filmmaker Kaizad Gustad while she was modelling for a jewellery campaign in London and that led to her break in Bollywood in the film ‘Boom’.

The beauty of Katrina can be enjoyed in the song “Sheila ki Jawaani” in Tees Maar Khan movie. At the end of the year of 2010, Katrina has put fire on the screen. The song is the most sexiest, seductive and can be voted as  item song of the year. Click here for the the song. enjoy it :

Deepika in Sari at Cannes

Deepika at Cannes

We, Indians feel proud of Deepika Padukone who flew the flag for India high at Cannes film festival 2010, with a traditional Indian Sari. She is looking glamorous, stunningly beautiful in sari. While both Aishwarya and Mallika opted for Western dresses, the 24-year-old took the six yard route to style as she stepped out on the red carpet in a sari. when one is representing India in a very visible platform like the Cannes, gowns and elaborate western dresses do not really represent India. One should not only feel Indian, but also look Indian. Finaly bollywood at least has got a beauty with brain. Deepika was able to make the right choice in her first go itself , this makes her different from others in Bollywood. Deepika is the real ambassador of India.

25 May 2010 : It is reported by the media that  she with her  attractive look and stunning Sari caught the attention of none other than  film maker Woody Allen and many Hollywood agents at Cannes .

Sexiest Asian woman-2008

Fully blommed Katrina

According to a poll by a leading UK magazine, Katrina Kaif is the Sexiest Asian Woman of 2008, and John Abraham is the Sexiest Asian Man of 2008. Last year’s winner Bipasha Basu was pushed to second spot by Katrina Kaif. Katrina Kaif was voted ‘Sexiest Asian Woman Alive’ for 2008. The poll is an annual shindig run by The ethnic Asian magazine in the UK.


“I’m very surprised. I really didn’t expect this” – was the reaction of Katrina. This in spite of the fact that Katrina doesn’t think she’s sexy. “Maybe the way I define sexy is different from the general definitions. Maybe the people who have voted for me think differently from me… thank god for that! The beautiful thing about this world is that there’re so many different opinions.”

“The important thing is to enjoy this moment. I smile about these things. Such momentary honor makes me want achieve a lot better. They help me take the next step.”

Katrina Kaif was born and brought up in London to a Kashmiri Father and a British Mother. While her stint at modeling in London, she came to the notice of filmmaker Kaizad Gustad and bagged an important role in his film Boo. It was this move that encouraged Katrina to take on to acting in Bollywood as her full-fledged career and shift her base to Mumbai. Flooded with modeling assignments in Mumbai, she took onto the big screen with movies like ‘Sarkar’ and ‘Maine Pyaar Kyun Kiya’.
