Katrina & Rahul Top Hottest Singles List
Bollywood star Katrina Kaif and Gandhi family scion Rahul Gandhi have emerged as India's most eligible single woman and man in a poll conducted by a wedding portal.
While Rahul Gandhi polled 30 per cent votes, Katrina was preferred by 27.5 per cent respondents.
“It surely feels nice to top such a poll. I really hope I will not remain single forever,” smiled Kaif, while reacting to Mail Today over the outcome of the poll by the website.
Katrina beat Vidya Balan (22.7%), Priyanka Chopra (18.7%) and Deepika Padukone (13.3%) to wrest the top spot.
Rahul Gandhi edged out Team India skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni, vice- captain Yuvraj Singh and Bollywood stars Shahid Kapur and John Abraham to top the year- end poll.
Dhoni polled 21.1% and Shahid had 13.4% votes. Interestingly, flavour of the season Ranbir Kapoor finished sixth.
“Rahul Gandhi deserves the top slot. He comes across as a good boy and a thorough gentleman. Plus, there are no past ‘ stories' about him unlike several cricketers and movie stars,” says ad guru Prahlad Kakkar. “ For example, a person like Salman Khan is unlikely to top such a list due to his several past encounters with women,” he added.
Katrina Kaif, however, has no such image problems. “ Katrina comes across as a genuine and beautiful person off screen. I feel that really helps her connect with the audience. Unlike other divas, she doesn't wear a mask in real life. Plus, she can easily connect with the youth, which is vital for a star,” New York director Kabir Khan said.
Kaif has been topping several surveys of late. Besides topping the annual World's Sexiest Asian Women list by Eastern Eye website, she was also named the ‘Google Queen' in a Google India list.
Along with Aamir, she also became the most downloaded Bollywood celebrity. Around 22,000 netizens participated in the poll, including well- known names from politics, sports, fashion and entertainment. The lists featured Vijay Mallya's son Siddharth, politician Milind Deora and Miss India Pooja Chopra.
