Sexiest: Sashi get most of the 1,5 million votes

2011-06-18 00:00

THE FHM readers have spoken: Shashi Naidoo, a model, entrepreneur and wife, is the 2011 FHM’s Sexiest Woman in the World.

Naidoo (30) is the first Indian to be crowned with the title. With 1,5 million votes, she tops the list of the 100 sexiest women in the world.

The Port Elizabeth-born beauty appeared on the small screen in the days of 20something on, and in 2004, when she played Linda McGinty on Backstage. She also had a stint on Generations and won the Tropika Island of Treasure in 2009.

Naidoo, who has been a model for a decade, has run a Johannesburg-based modelling agency since 2008 and is an ambassador for Audi A1.

She believes sexiness is a state of mind and that one does not need looks to be sexy. She is also not one to shy away from “slap” chips and crisps and only seeks out a gym two weeks before a major shoot.

The chiropractic graduate said she has no regrets that she did not take up medicine.

“I’m really happy. You see, when you’re Indian you’re expected to be a doctor, accountant or lawyer. I’ve always been a drama queen and loud when I was growing up.”

She told Weekend Witness that most Indian girls don’t see modelling as a career.

She added, “There is no perfect woman and looks don’t last forever. People should just love themselves and be true to themselves.”

Naidoo will be taking her dad for an Audi advanced driving course for Father’s Day tomorrow.
