Bradford-born Malik, who left the group earlier this year to be a "normal 22-year-old", is also the youngest person ever to top the list.

This year marks the 12th edition of the annual poll by UK-based Eastern Eye newspaper.

Last year's winner Bollywood star Hrithik Roshan slipped into second place this year, with Pakistani singer and actor Ali Zafar in third place.

Malik was in ninth position last year but ended up topping this year's list following votes from across the globe.

The top five is completed with Indian TV star Barun Sobti in fourth position and actor Vivian Dsena in fifth position.

Other notable names in the top 10 are Bollywood heavy weight Salman Khan in seventh spot, and Shah Rukh Khan, often referred to as the King of Bollywood, holding the ninth spot.

New career for Zayn Malik in the kitchen?

Former One Direction star Zayn Malik could be cooking up a new career - after his fiancee Perrie Edwards revealed he is spending his free time in the kitchen.

The singer, who shocked the boyband's fans when he quit in March, got engaged to the Little Mix star two years ago.

Edwards told the Sun: "It's nice to see more of him now. We spend a lot of time in the kitchen, he's a great chef."

She also revealed her career - the band have a new single out - is getting in the way of the pair tying the knot.

She said: "Me and Zayn want it to be perfect, so as soon as I have a bit of time, we'll plan it. I doubt it will be this summer."

Malik flew home from the boyband's world tour with "stress" before suddenly quitting the group, saying he wanted to be a "normal 22-year-old."

One Direction have insisted they will go on without Malik and fans will get the chance to see the four-piece perform at Capital's Summertime Ball in London's Wembley Stadium next month.
