The 10 hottest Indian women are intellectuals, actors, athletes, world-renown authors, freak-nasty porn stars, and religious devotees. They represent the panoply of female sensuality almost as well as their homeland does the sweltering stew of the human condition.
- Jhumpa Lahiri. Technically, Lahiri is Bengali American, and she’d probably be appalled to find herself on this list (sorry). The Pulitzer Prize Winner is not only physically beautiful; she’s a consummate and heartbreaking artist. Recently appointed to President Obama's Committee on the Arts and Humanities, Lahiri merits her inclusion as one of the 10 hottest women for her intelligence and sensitivity.
- Aishwarya Rai. Bollywood superstar Rai was Miss World in 1994. She attends to her Ganesh statue daily (for the uninitiated, that’s the Hindu elephant god). Her seductive eyes, sensuous movements, and inviting smile make her one of the 10 hottest Indian women. It doesn’t hurt that at the 2002 International Indian Film Academy Awards, she won the coveted Most Searched Personality on MSN India prize.
- Deepika Padukone. Forgive the transgression to common parlance, but Copenhagen-born Indian model, Bollywood actress, and Badminton star Padukone is smokin’ hot. Her regal composure, seductively arched eyebrows, come-hither eyes, and serpentine body give her an Old World aura. One of the 10 hottest Indian women, Padukone looks as if she stepped right out of the Karma Sutra. Frankly, we wish she’d step back in it, and do some of those dirty deeds with us.
- Sahara Knite. British-Indian porn star Knite is a super freak. It’s just another day at the office for the liberal bi-sexual when she gags on upright organ, slurps seeping stink holes, tongues gash, and is blindfolded, tied, raped, and roped on by geriatrics. Whether or not you like ‘em filthy, Knite is undeniably sexy, and one of the 10 hottest women in India. Wrote a fan on message board: “I want her to finish her career by shagging some midgets.” Here here.
- Sati. Sati is the self, forced, or coerced immolation of a widow on her husband’s funeral pyre. Indicative of the gross, historical oppression and objectification of women in India, the practice was justified by early Brahmin scholars, though today is rightly seen as barbaric, grotesque and inhumane. Any way you slice, a woman engulfed in flames is quite literally one of the 10 hottest Indian women.
- Preity Zinta. Bollywood and Tollywood star Zinta has a degree in Criminal Psychology, and writes columns BBC News. Far from bookish, Zinta is glamorous, and handsomely sexy. She’s also part owner of Indian Premier League cricket team Kings XI Punjab. Other than a solid gold toilet, what’s better than a foxy woman to jibe sports with over curry and a Kingfisher? Nothing, we tell you. Nothing.
- Genelia D’Souza. D’Souza’s an up-and-coming Bollywood and Tollywood star, and one of the hottest Indian women. In addition to her acting prowess, Genelia has played soccer at the national level, has a degree in Management Studies, and is the new face of Fanta in India. D’Souza is a standout for her normal, Western looks.
- Sonam Kapoor. Kapoor is the daughter of Bollywood mainstay Anil Kapoor, who appeared as the game show host in Slumdog Millionaire. Though she had not intention to pursue acting as a career, Sonam posses the glamour, magnetism, dignity, and sex appeal of old school Hollywood. A sophisticated beauty, Sonam Kapoor is one of the 10 hottest Indian women.
- Freida Pinto. Slumdog Millionaires’ Pinto brims with youthful passion and an exuberant lust for life. Though she’s only been in one movie thus far, her ebullient grin, innocent charm, and genial countenance posit her as someone you’d wanna take home to mom and much as you’d wanna play hide the weasel with. As such, Pinto is certainly one of the 10 hottest Indian women.
- Parminder Nagra. In Bend it Like Beckham and ER, Nagra brought a smoldering, guarded sexuality to the screen. In her intellect and self-conscious reservation, Nagra comes off as the timid, bookish girl next door who unleashes her inner demon of lust behind closed door. Smart as a whip and sexy as a Swiss Bank Account, Narga is one of the 10 hottest women.
