Shreya Agarwal, 20, student
It’s got to be Alia Bhatt. She’s my age and made me want to join the gym with that bikini shot in Shaandaar.
Aditya Singh Rajput, 28, actor
Alia Bhatt looks cute and a bikini adds a subtle sexy edge to her persona which I find appealing.
Akira Merve, 20, student
I would choose Katrina Kaif in Bang Bang because looked breathtakingly beautiful in the bikini scene.
Sabeena Rangeela, 29, stylist
I dig Deepika Padukone’s bikini look in Cocktail. Her style is truly international.
Vikrant Kaushik, 27, entrepreneur
No one has ever looked as perfect as Nargis Fakhri in a two-piece swimwear. She looked effortless and not at all conscious about donning it.
Jhanvi Kulkarni Sonavne, 27, architect
It is undoubtedly Katrina Kaif’s neon orange monokini in Bang Bang. As it is, she looks sizzling hot all the time.
Yasmin Singh, 27, sales executive
Sonam Kapoor is known to be a clothes horse and by sporting a bikini in Beswakoofiyaan, she proved that she looks great in a risqué avatar too.
Vivek Salain, 25, sales executive
Deepika Padukone carried herself really well in Cocktail; none of her contemporaries have done as much justice to a bikini.
Harsh Parekh, 28, creative producer
Deepika Padukone takes home the trophy while Nargis Fakhri comes a close second because we keep seeing the latter’s bikini pictures often and so, there is not much freshness about it.
Wilson Pareira, 29, social media manager
Nargis Fakhri is sizzling, comes with a package, is not too fair, not muscular, not as tall as a coconut tree. She is perfection personified.
Abhishek Dutta, 26, social media manager
Alia Bhatt is the winner hands down. She has that mass youth connect as she is not the perfect bikini babe that we can only dream of. When I saw her in the bikini, I could imagine that my girlfriend would look sexy in a two-piece too.
Priya James, 23, student
We have heard about Sonam Kapoor’s battle with weight in her younger days and she showed us how well-toned her body is by strutting her stuff in a two-piece.
