Coming back to the list of top 25 Most Desirable Men of 2015, Yash — who had won the title in 2013 and secured the third place in 2014 — is in the second position this year. Budding actor Dhananjay, who made his acting debut in Guruprasad's "Director's Special," has taken the third spot.

Powerstar Puneeth Rajkumar is fourth, while former Indian cricket captain Rahul Dravid is in the fifth place. Crickter Manish Pandey, Diganth, Sri Murali, Rakshit Shetty and Chandan Kumar of "Bigg Boss 3" Kannada fame are in the next five positions, respectively.
