They had emerged as the winners even last year

It is very difficult to define sexy but few celebs personify the word with their charisma and inherent sex-appeal. And the youth of the nation seems to agree for they have reached a consensus on who is the sexiest of them all. In the annual youth survey conducted by Hindustan Times, Ranbir Kapoor has been voted as the Sexiest Man Alive, while Deepika Padukone has snagged the title of being the Sexiest Woman Alive. However, what’s interesting is to see whom they have toppled to reach the top spot.

Deepika Padukone battled it out with Priyanka Chopra and Alia Bhatt to emerge as the winner, for the second time in a row. She clocked in a total of 33 per cent votes, while PeeCee managed to secure 22.9 per cent votes, and Alia Bhatt got 22.1 per cent of votes. It is evident that despite Priyanka’s popularity around the globe, it is Deepika who is the crowd favourite, at least as far as being sexy is concerned. Alia Bhatt, while popular among the millennials, still has a long way to go before competing with these seasoned actresses.

Ranbir Kapoor has been reigning supreme as the Sexiest Man Alive since 2015. This year too, he has retained his position by securing 32.7 per cent votes, while Ranveer Singh fetched 21.6 per cent votes and footballer Cristiano Ronaldo managed to get a mere 8.9 per cent of votes. While we have always seen Ranveer score high on the fashion meter and get full points for experimenting, it seems like the youth likes the inherent charm that Ranbir Kapoor sure has oodles of. And as far as the others are concerned, seeing what they have scored, it seems evident that they don’t even stand a chance in front of these two.
