FHM India's annual "Sexiest Women in the World" list is out and most people won't be surprised to find that Katrina Kaif tops this year's poll. But it's the inclusion (or exclusion) of Aishwarya Rai that is causing the bigger stir.
FHM themselves announced Katrina Kaif as their cover girl for the July 2012 issue, naming her the sexiest woman in the world for the fourth time. And the magazine specifically mentioned in their announcement that Aishwarya hadn't made the cut. Their wording? "While Katrina Kaif retains her supremacy, Aishwarya is out of the list this time. To know why pick the July issue."
Well that seems pretty cut and dry, doesn't it? Aishwarya isn't on the list (for reasons which should be obvious). So why then are some websites including her?
The International Business Times (not the most trustworthy source, to be fair) has printed a list which places Aishwarya at #8 on the list, and other media organizations have taken this report as gospel. Comments on the story pointing out that the list is fake have been repeatedly removed by the site.
What on earth is going on there? Are Aishwarya's people making sure she appears in conjunction with the title "World's Sexiest Women" whether she appears on the list or not? Or is it a case of an irresponsible website doing sloppy reporting (or even outright lying and making stories up)? Most likely it's the latter. It's incredibly stupid either way. The world won't stop turning if Aishwarya fails to make the cut for some skeezy men's magazine.
