In what seems to be a case of too much of a good thing, two separate publications have declared Akshay Kumar and John Abraham the 'Sexiest Man' of the year 2008.
John Abraham has been adjudged 2008's sexiest Asian in the world in a poll conducted by British Asian weekly 'Eastern Eye.'
On the other hand People magazine has declared none other than the 'Khiladi' Akshay Kumar as 'Sexiest Man Alive'.
John emerged on top of the list, defeating Hrithik Roshan and the Khans, while 'People' threw up an interesting lot of names other than the usual Bollywood lot.
The list included cricketer Dhoni, Rahul Gandhi and names from down south like Suriya and also newcomers like Imran Khan and Prateik Babbar.
Newcomers in the Eastern Eyes year's list were Harman Baweja, Stephen Uppal, Upen Patel and boxer Amir Khan.
"John Abraham made up for a quiet year with a sensational look in Dostana, with one of the greatest physiques ever seen on big screen.
His body helped to make the film a hit with Asian women," said Hamant Verma, Editor, Eastern Eye.Incidentally, John's girlfriend Bipasha Basu was voted as the Sexiest Asian Woman last year.
'In 2008 he made astute choices ....Proving he is not just brawn and who else in Bollywood can carry off the turban with with as much panache' reasoned People bestowing the title on Akshay.
Both the lists had the usual suspects like Hrithik Roshan and the Khans on them.
