Despite all the lovey-dovey public appearances, star couple Abhishek and Aishwarya Bachchan lost out to actors Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif when it came to being the ‘hottest Bollywood couple’ of the decade.
Of the 38,648 respondents to an online poll, 36 per cent voted for Sallu and Kat. While Abhi-Ash got 27 per cent, actors Bipasha Basu and John Abraham scored 13 per cent and Kareena Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan got barely six per cent of the votes.
The poll, MSN’s Decade Special For Bollywood, also had categories such as ‘Hottest liplock of the decade’ and ‘Superstar of the decade’. Leading the ‘hottest liplock’ category with 39 per cent votes, is Emraan Hashmi and Mallika Sherawat’s famous kiss in the 2004 film Murder. Hrithik Roshan and Ash’s Dhoom 2 smooch and Saifeena’s liplock in Kurbaan came second and third respectively.
Interestingly, all the top three films in the ‘Best film’ category — 3 Idiots, Lagaan, Rang De Basanti — are actor Aamir Khan’s blockbusters .
In the category for ‘Worst Film’, 48 per cent votes went to Ram Gopal Varma Ki Aag, followed by Sci-Fi flicks Drona and Love Story 2050.
