The versatile hottie Sonali Raut (of The Xpose fame) got quite a surprise when she found out that she beat another beauty Chitrangada Singh in the recent Celebex poll, charting the up and coming celebrities of 2014.
The newbie debuted the polls at Number 35, just after hot and happening names like Deepika Padukone, Katrina Kaif, Priyanka Chopra, Kareena Kapoor, Aishwarya Rai, Sonakshi Sinha, Anushka Sharma, Vidya Balan, Sonam Kapoor and Parineeti Chopra.
But what bothered Sonali is that she beat Chitrangada, who came at Number 44. `I really like Chitrandaga and I also know that a lot of men swoon over her. I wish I was placed after her in the poll,` she remarked.
Now now! That's a first for a gal in any cat race. But Sonali's goodwill doesn't there! She has a word of praise for some other more contemporary names like Shraddha Kapoor, Kajal Aggarwal, Nargis Fakhri, Ileana Dcruz, Jacqueline Fernandez, Tamanna Bhatia, Alia Bhatt and Kriti Sanon who preceded her in the poll.
`They are all making an impacting presence with some spectacular movies. I felt privileged to be placed amongst them too,` quipped Sonali. Guess many would want to learn humbleness from this gorgeous new-age girl.
