Bollywood star Ranveer Singh, who has topped a ‘Most Desirable Men List’, feels flattered to be considered for the title. He has topped The Times of India’s 50 Most Desirable Men List of 2017, which has Prabhas, Virat Kohli, Hrithik Roshan and Sidharth Malhotra rounding off the top five.
“I do not consider myself to be the best-looking actor, but it is very flattering to be considered desirable,” Ranveer said in a statement.
The star added: “It’s important for people to feel desirable for the sake of their self-confidence. I do not consider myself to be the best-looking actor. Also, I was an overweight kid till about Class 9.”
The actor said he still sees himself the same way, “In my head, I am still that fat kid who gets no female attention. I will always be that fat kid because those years were my foundation years. I don’t actively seek validation of my desirability from people, but it is most definitely welcome.”
Ranveer expressed his happiness about this on Twitter and thanked all those voted for him. His thanks received a “You’re Welcome” from none other than alleged beau, Deepika Padukone.
Most desirable! Sweet! ???

Talking to Conde Nast Traveller about his childhood and family vacations, Ranveer said, ”We didn’t have a lot of money when I was growing up. So my parents would save up and save up for that one big summer holiday abroad; I remember going to Indonesia, Singapore, Italy, but most often it was the US–we had a lot of family there. And December was always Goa with my grandparents.”
