With Deepika Padukone endorsing her sexy midriff as her new asset, we wonder who can give the leggy beauty a serious competition when it comes to showing off that killer, gyrating girth

She twirled it, twisted it and swung it to create hysteria and now she is calling it her new asset. The leggy Deepika Padukone used her stunning midriff in almost every film she did – and even in every possible commercial she appeared in – to make us lust after her toned mid- segment. Though midriff is the most underrated part of the body, Deepika proved how one can master the game of seduction by employing that part of the bod sexily!

With that interminably long frame she has been blessed with, Dippy’s newest asset becomes one of the most ‘extensive’ we have seen so far, and definitely one of the sexiest in B-town. And that assessment has led us to a newer quest. In fact, we have set out to find out who can give our elegant diva a tough competition by showing off her midriff. From Anushka Sharma to Katrina Kaif and from Kareena Kapoor Khan to Illeana D’Cruz, we wonder who’s got the most seductive midriff…

 Katrina Kaif: A strong contender to walk away with the best midriff title, Kat is blessed with much more than just a hot belly. But since we are restricting our analysis on mid- segment alone, we must add that the quintessential Chikni Chameli simply caught us with the eyeballs with that super-sexy kamariya in her item number from Agneepath.

Kareena Kapoor Khan: She has not exactly acquired the right reputation for her FLABULOUS bod. But one can’t deny the fact that Bebo made men go berserk by giving them a generous dose of her meaty midriff in films like Chameli and Omkara. Not exactly toned and super shapely, Bebo’s midriff is curvy enough to kill!

Anushka Sharma: Super fit, toned but not exactly enticing is how we see Anushka’s midriff. Though we like Miss Sharma in all her hotness (as a complete package), but we don’t find her tummy-in it exclusivity-sexy (enough)!

 Ileana D’cruz and Nargis Fakhri: The Main Tera Hero hotties simply made us go oooh-look-at-that with a liberal display of their sizzling skin show (only after Varun Dhawan that is!). The petite Ileana has a tummy the size of a tiny chocolate bar, and her nubile kamariya is explosive! And even Nargis showed us the sensational effect a good midriff can have on our collective nervous functioning!

Priyanka Chopra: PeeCee wore her lehenga precariously low in the Ram chahe Leela number from Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone’s Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram–Leela and that plastered with tattoo took the midriff madness to another level altogether. Don’t you agree?

Kangana Ranaut: Kangy may have the body constitution of a fierce ramp model and washboard abs to die for, but just like Anushka , the Queen star doesn’t make us go crazy with that belly of hers. But she definitely has a toned midriff and we appreciate it, if we use the term in the ‘larger’ context

Shilpa Shetty: Mrs Kundra wins the competition hands down and prove the might of yoga straight-away. Watch her move her midriff with fluidity in a club number from Dishikyaoon and you will know what we are talking about!
