Popular singer Zayn Malik has topped the 50 Sexiest Asian Men list for the first time. The former One Direction band member beat off tough competition in the long-running poll compiled by UK based Eastern Eye newspaper to be declared the sexiest Asian man on the planet for 2015.
Last year’s winner, Bollywood actor, Hrithik Roshan came in second with Pakistani singer and actor Ali Zafar holding onto third position. Pop superstar Zayn rose up from ninth position last year and came out on top following millions of votes from across the globe for the 12th edition of the popular annual poll. At 22-years-old he also became the youngest ever to top the list.
The surprise win rounds off a very eventful year for the young British singer/songwriter who has been under a global media spotlight since he left super group One Direction and subsequently landed a lucrative solo contract.
