Actor Shahid Kapoor
has upset a lot of Hrithik Roshan
and Fawad Khan fans by beating these two gorgeous men in the race for Sexiest Asian Man 2017
. According to reports, the actor has topped the list of '50 Sexiest Asian Men 2017' for the first time. Also featuring on the list are other popular men including, Zayn Malik, Vivian Dsena, Ashish Sharma, Salman Khan, Gurmeet Choudhary, Ranveer Singh and Virat Kohli.
The actor took to Twitter to express his gratitude for the seemingly unexpected win and said the title was only possible because of the love and support of his fans.
But we are not at all surprised by his name topping the list. From being a chocolate boy to the brawny man he is now, Shahid has certainly come a long way. You would seldom spot the actor at a restaurant but always at the gym. In fact, most of his recent pictures on the internet have been clicked outside his gym.
While it's hard to ignore his natural good looks, no one can deny the fact that his sexiness has a lot to do with his lean and chiseled body. The actor is known to follow a hard gym routine and a strict diet. According to reports, the actor really works hard on his core as it enhances the body's efficiency in performing other activities.
Shahid's gym regime includes planks, side planks, push-ups, bench-press, pull-ups to sumo dead-lifts, running and many other techniques. His daily fitness regime includes equipment training, cardio and body-weight exercises like burpees and a little bit of yoga.
Shahid, who is a strict vegetarian reportedly banks upon protein and energy dense food to stay in shape. His daily diet is said to be a mix of tofu, paneer, soy, brown rice, fruits and green leafy veggies and amino rich food.
Besides being a gym rat, the actor is a loving husband to wife Mira and a doting father to cute Misha and guess that adds to his sexiness. It's a known fact that committed men are seemingly more attractive to women and to gay men alike and with Shahid topping the chart, the asian ladies and gay men have only proved the fact.
The actor, who began his innings in Bollywood doing teeny-bopper romances has transformed into a tough guy onscreen and his transformation is one of the main reasons why is one of the most followed Bollywood stars on social media. A look at his Instagram account is enough to justify why he beat Hrithik and Fawad in the game of sexiness. Let's have a look at some of his most gorgeous pictures from Instagram.
