An online poll done by Times Of India to decide the most desirable man of 2016, the total unique 1.17 votes received on www.itimes.com/polls and the http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/ decided the final 50 most desirable and hottest man of 2016.
When Ranveer was asked when he was chosen on the top he said, “I am thrilled that I am considered the Most Desirable Man in India today. Whatever it is, it feels wonderful to be called that. The dictionary meaning of desirability is ‘someone high on sex appeal’. In my case, iss baat mein koi sandeh nahin hai. When I was launched in 2010, people told me that I wasn’t the best looking guy, so I would have to act really well. I am awar e that I am not conventionally good looking. I have heard it so many times that I have started believing it.”
He added, “Aditya Chopra had told me, ‘You are not very good looking, so you have to act. I can’t sell you on a poster to people; they have to watch you to like you.’ I have grown up believing that when an individual excels at what he does, it makes him desirable. I am a living example that lack of conventional good looks shouldn’t hinder you from being awesome.”
