LT asked a few of telly s leading ladies to tell us who they think are the hottest men on TV. Their responses – Rajeev Khandelwal and Rohit Roy – shouldn’t come as surprises to anyone…

They might be haute property on television, but that doesn’t stop tele’s leading ladies from having their own hot favourites! Lucknow Times spoke to a few screen sizzlers to find out who makes their heart go dhak dhak and trust us Rohit Roy and Rajeev Khandelwal seem to have beaten the rest for the top slot. But there are other names too. Read on… Put the question to Sangeeta Ghosh and it sets her thinking before she finally manages to say, “There isn’t any one who’s actually hot, but yes there are some good looking actors like Shabbir and Rohit Roy. In fact, I even find Kiran Kumar quite good looking and believe me, they look even better on screen!” And then adds as an after thought, “Come to think of it, all the actors who work with me are good looking!”

But Sangeeta isn’t the only one who finds it difficult to name a ‘hot’ looking male on the s m a l l screen, even actor Mandira Bedi seems to be facing the same dilemma. “I don’t find any man on TV hot enough but yes, there are some good looking actors, Rajeev Khandelwal is one. But I’m only talking about his onscreen persona, I haven’t met him in person,” says Mandira.

Roshni Chopra on the other hand seems to have worked out the names well in advance. Ask her and she’s quick to respond: “Rohit Roy, Iqbal Khan and Ram Kapoor are certainly hot. They exude charisma both on and off screen,” she rattles off.

Actor Neha Mehta is also quite clear about her choice. “I find Rohit Roy hot both on and off screen. Besides Rohit, Anand Suryavanshi who has worked with me in Mamta and Rajeev Khandelwal are also hot, but Rohit remains the ultimate choice. He’s gifted with great looks and a good voice, which contribute in making him so impressive .” Interestingly some of the ladies can’t think of even a single name. Achint Kaur for instance speaks candidly , “I don’t find any male actor hot because my definition of hot is not just great looks. For me a man must also be intelligent if he has to be hot and unfortunately I have not found anyone so intelligent,” Wow!

Another candid confession comes from actor Shweta Salve who says, “Frankly speaking none of the men fit the criteria. There’s a lot that goes into making one hot – a great personality, great style, a good voice, good aptitude, confidence and most importantly grey cells.”

So are the men paying enough attention?
