Katrina Kaif - Sexiest Asian Woman in the World
We already told you all about the Indian superstar Aishwarya, and her reigning title as "The Most Beautiful Woman in the World". Well now another Indian beauty has stepped in to grab the title of "Sexiest Asian Woman in the World"...damn! India is doing something right in that gene pool over there!
Katrina Kaif is actually British, but with Indian ancestry. She's become a big star in Bollywood, and continuously works in Hindi films in India through an employment visa, though. But that is just the tip of the iceberg in Ms. Kaif's international life story. She was born in Hong Kong to a Kashmiri father and English mother. From Hong Kong, her family moved to China, Japan, France, Switzerland, Germany, Belgium and even Hawaii before landing in the UK. That's so GLOBAILE!
And so while she is in fact a British citizen, she only lived in London for 3 years before moving to Mumbai to become a movie star. Ms. Kaif started out as a model, and is was through her modeling work that she was discovered by a London film maker that cast her in her first film, Boom, for which she moved to Mumbai.
She had a bit of a slow start in the Indian film industry because she could not speak Hindi, but pretty soon the films she did make grew to be successful blockbusters, making her a bonafied movie star. And in 2008, 2009, and 2010 she was named "Sexiest Asian Woman in the World" by Eastern Eye, the self-proclaimed #1 Asian website in the UK.
She's paired up with one of our favorite Bollywood hunks, Akshay Kumar, for many of her films, dating back to 2006. Here's a song from their latest collaboration, the film Tees Maar Khan. We love the big band sound and style of this video - almost like Bollywood meets Go-Go...and Katrina and Akshay are pretty easy on the eyes too...
