YouGov has released a list of the 'World's Most Admired Men 2021' and 5 Indians have secured a good position in the top 20. At the same time, the names of former President Barack Obama and Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates are also included in this list. At the same time, India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi has slipped four places to the eighth position. The great thing is that Russian President Vladimir Putin has returned after a year in the top 10 of this list.
In the list of women, Michelle Obama, wife of Barack Obama, has remained in the first place for the third consecutive year. Angelina Jolie is in second place, Queen Elizabeth II in third, and Oprah Winfrey in fourth. The names of Indian actress Priyanka Chopra, Emma Watson, and Malala Yousafzai are also included in the top 10. US Vice President Kamala Harris has been ranked 11th on this list.
The top 5 Indians who made it in the list are PM Narendra Modi, great cricketer Sachin Tendulkar, Shahrukh Khan, Amitabh Bachchan, and Virat Kohli. These 20 people are some of the most powerful people in the world. They made headlines for some reason this whole year.
Because of the fan following of Shah Rukh Khan, his name is on this list because none of his films came on screen for the last many years. On the other hand, 79-year-old Amitabh Bachchan, who has dominated from TV to cinema, has shown his strength this year as well. Recently his game show KBC completed its 1000 episodes.
Apart from these, two more names are included in the list, they are the shining star of the cricket world, Virat Kohli, and the God of cricket Sachin Tendulkar. The name of the God of cricket does not need any introduction in the world. However, nowadays Virat Kohli is seen in more controversies than in the field.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi has slipped four places in the list of most admired men in the world for 2021. PM Modi occupied the fourth position in the list of 2020. Then his total score was 4.7, which has become 3.6 this time. Top-ranked Barack Obama has also suffered this time compared to last year. His total score in the 2020 survey was 8.9, which has come down to 7.8 this time.
