Bollywood actress Kareena Kapoor has been voted the sexiest woman in the south Asian region in the latest poll carried out by Eastern Eye.

According to the poll, Kareena Kapoor replaced the reigning champion, Katrina Kaif, to claim the crown of the sexiest woman of South Asia. Katrina Kaif, who won the title during the last three years by a large margin, slipped to second place now.

Kereena Kapoor won by 1 per cent of votes from Katrina Kaif.

"I am sure this fierce Bollywood battle will continue at the box office and in the race to sign the high profile projects. Katrina and Kareena battling it out to become the queen of Hindi cinema can only be a good thing for fans," said showbiz editor of Eastern Eye, Asjad Nazir.

The biggest surprise of 2011's sexiest list is that Bollywood actor Hrithik Roshan's wife and Sussanne Roshan received a massive number of votes and she was one of the highest new entries at number 16. (See the slideshow)
