The war for winning the title of The Ultimate Seductress has just wrapped up! And guess who's the winner. Well it's none other than Chikni Chameli Katrina Kaif. But Chammak Challo aka Kareena Kapoor's fans need not be disappointed. She came a close second, losing out the title to Katrina by some hundred votes.

In case you are wondering what we are talking about, we had floated a poll asking the surfers to vote for the ultimate seductress in Bollywood. And who were the contenders? Katrina Kaif, Kareena Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra, Bipasha Basu, Aishwarya Rai and Vidya Balan battled it out.


Out of 1,701 respondents, 38.15% (649 votes) voted for Sheila girl Katrina. After Ek Tha Tiger's success, the glamorous actress seems to be in demand.

Katrina Kaif is slowly but steadily riding the glamour ladder. Though she started out with a bold role in Boom, she turned into a sweet girl later with films like Namaste London and Singh is Kingg.

Kat who showed promise with Zara Zara Touch Me (Race), emerged into a definitive sex symbol with Sheila Ki Jawani (Tees Maar Khan). Finally with Chikni Chameli (Agneepath) and now Ek Tha Tiger stint the lady has solidified her glam image.

Check out the poll result:

Avtar Chauhan a surfer comments: "The unbeatable 'Katrina Kaif'! She will remain 'Number One' at least for a decade! God bless her"

Jitendra Pradhan posted on Twitter: "@htshowbiz its Kat 4 me... No way kareena in comp. Wid Kat."

Katrina obviously, says a follower Mohi.

Katrina Kaif, Kareena Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra


Kareena Kapoor is not far behind as she clinches first runner-up position with 30.51% (519 votes). Bebo is currently making waves with her raunchy number Halkat Jawani.

The actress is playing a bold heroine in Madhur Bhandarkar's upcoming film. Her attitude, confidence and grace make her one of the most sought after actresses in Bollywood. The film is set to release on September 21.

Be it Pooja of Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham, Kaurwaki of Asoka or her portrayals in Chameli and Tashan, Bebo has upped the sensuality quotient in B-Town. She gave Malaikas and Mallikas of Bollywood a run for their money in Chammak Challo too.

Prajit Mathew votes for Kareena as he posts his comment: "Kareena is the only one in the list who remain on top from 12 years, she is the best." (sic)

Priyanka Chopra has grabbed the third slot with 9.05% (154 votes). The actress ironically plays a completely deglam look in her upcoming film Barfi! opposite Ranbir Kapoor. She plays an autistic girl. But her glam diva image is intact.

Priyanka Chopra's chemistry with Akshay Kumar was crackling to say the least in Andaaz. Her body language conveyed she would continue with her bold ways in her subsequent films.

She dared to play a negative role of a seductress in Aitraaz. She looked tailor-made for the role. Her 'Fashion' sense got her not only a national award but also a siginificant place in showtown.

Vidya Balan sits gracefully at the fourth position. She garnered 8.99% (153 votes). She went 'dirty' for a film and still walked away with a National award. In fact she displayed her bold side in her debut film Parineeta. Her lovemaking sequences with Saif Ali Khan and Sanjay Dutt in the film were high on steamy quotient.

Guru, Salaam-e-Ishq and Ishqiya further accentuated her bold image.


Bipasha Basu comes fifth with 7.11% (121 votes). Bipasha Basu's Jism is probably the Raaz of her success. The lady seduces in Raaz 3 with a vengeance.

The bongshell first tasted success with Raaz, opposite Dino Morea. The film is as much known for its horror quotient as its steamy scenes. Her portrayal of Sonia Khanna in Jism established her as a sex symbol in the industry.

Madhoshi, Omkara, Race, Bachna Ae Haseeno and Players are some of the other films that helped entrech her sensual image in Bollywood.

Bipasha Basu, Vidya Balan and Aishwarya Rai


Last but not the least, Aishwarya Rai is not exactly the flavour of the season. She could manage only 6.17% (105 votes).

Aishwarya Rai might be on a break from Bollywood post motherhood, but her previous achievements qualify her as a sex symbol. She broke her pretty doll image with Shabd, her eyes did the trick in Umrao Jaan and her Kajrare was an ultimate gamechanger.

Her bold kissing sequence with Hrithik Roshan in Dhoom 3 and her bindaas performance in Chokher Bali helped her reach there.
