Sharukh Khan may be the King of Bollywood, but when it comes to health, Salman rules.
Salman Khan has been voted as the number one role model of health in the entertainment category by the public of India, in a one-of-its-kind survey conducted by the Complete Wellbeing magazine.
The survey was conducted by global market research company Synovate for Complete Wellbeing magazine to identify India's role models of health and happiness across entertainment, business, sports and politics. Men and women between 25-45 years of age across eight metros were asked to name their role models from these fields.
In the entertainment category, India's choice for its role model of health is Salman Khan with 26% votes coming his way. Shahrukh Khan is the next choice at 24% votes. The public has voted for Amitabh Bachchan instead of Hrithik Roshan or Akshay Kumar to make him the role model of health at number three.
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan received maximum votes from her home state, Bengaluru. Abhishek Bachchan is Ahmedabad's idol for health. Ahmedabad has also voted heavily for Ajay Devgan and Katreena Kaif.
John Abraham's fantastic physique doesn't seem to inspire a lot of Indians as he figures at no 10 for health with 4% votes.
Though he failed to make it to the top 10, Sunil Shetty is quite popular in Delhi, reveals the survey.
The top three role models of happiness from entertainment are the same as health, except that Shahrukh knocked Salman off the number one position. Amitabh maintained his post at number three. On the fourth place is Akshay Kumar securing 12% votes with only 1% depriving him of the third place.
Hrithik Roshan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan share the ninth slot with 5% votes each.
The findings of the Complete Wellbeing-Synovate survey for Health and Happiness results are as entertaining as a typical Bollywood masala flick. They are published in the December 2008 issue of Complete Wellbeing, out on stands, now.
