Hrithik, who was third last year, got votes from all over the world from fans of different ages and cultures via social networking sites like Twitter. Described by many as a Greek God, Hrithik went back to his winning ways in 2011, playing the lead role in the mega-hit movie Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara and also had his wax statue added to the Madame Tussauds museum in London.
“He has acted in the most anticipated Agneepath remake, featured as a judge on the hit TV show Just Dance and signed up for the eagerly awaited superhero movie sequel Krrish 2," the weekly said.
“Hrithik is a worthy winner; a leading man with a global appeal. This year, there was a massive gap between Hrithik and the rest of the competitors. He is the perfect ambassador for India and someone who could take on anyone in Hollywood in terms of looks, talent and likability," said Asjad Nazir, Eastern Eye showbiz editor.
