Hamant Verma, editor of ‘Eastern Eye’, said: “Katrina Kaif’s natural beauty and easy charm has enabled her stock to rise in Bollywood. This has resulted in a number of lucrative offers, and appearances in films that proved to be box-office hits.”

Katrina, who gave a string of hit movies this year, has been adjudged an international beauty in various other polls recently, including FHM’s Sexiest Women 2008.

Other Indian beauties in the top 10 includes Mallika Sherawat, Malaika Khan, Aishwarya Rai, Priyanka Chopra and Kareena Kapoor. Katrina is also the most downloaded wallpaper person in India, gracing almost every tenth computer.

The judges included Brianna Ragel, editor of ‘Asian Woman Magazine’ and the former editor of ‘FHM India’, Farhad Dadyburjor.
