8 men that had us feeling some kind of way in 2018

You'll want to follow them on Instagram immediately

2018 has been the year of many good (looking) men. From the revelation that was south superstar Dulquer Salmaan to the realisation that Nick Jonas has well and truly grown-up, we look back at all the men that had us swooning, this year. Scroll through the gallery, and then follow them on Instagram. Start the new year right.

Vicky Kaushal

The actor, who featured on Forbes' 30 Under 30 list, had a great year. He displayed his acting chops in mainstream movies such as Raazi and Sanju, and also in Netflix productions, like Love per Square Foot and Lust Stories, gaining the affection of Indian audiences. A quick look at the many thirsty comments on his Instagram posts will confirm this fact.

Vikrant Massey

One of the few actors to have successfully made the jump from TV to Bollywood, Vikrant has that boy next door appeal that has been known to make women go weak in the knees. This year, we saw him in Amazon Prime's Mirzapur. Next year, he will be part of Yaar Jigri, Chaapaak, and Cargo, which you better not miss because the actor hopes to diversify and work in the education or sociology sectors in a few years. You didn't know that? Here's another interesting fact about Massey - he's also a trained ballet dancer. Could there be a more complete package?

Daniel Kaluuya

Black Panther had an impressive cast but even then, Daniel managed to stand out as W'Kabi, protagonist T'Challa's best friend. If you want to see more of him (and really, why wouldn't you?), watch last year's film, Get Out - it earned him an Academy Award nomination.


Dulquer Salmaan

He was always a big deal down south (his Malayalam movies are well-loved) but it's only with the Hindi movie Karwaan, that we were compelled to sit up and take notice of Mammootty's handsome son. He's currently shooting with Sonam Kapoor for The Zoya Factor (an adaption of Anuja Chauhan's eponymous book) and TBH, we can't wait to see him on screen again.

Nick Jonas

You may have vague memories of the Jonas brothers from your childhood (remember Camp Rock?) but Priyanka Chopra's engagement with Nick brought him into our collective consciousness. His adorable PDA with Priyanka firmly established him as boyfriend (and now husband) material. His eager participation in Indian customs for their wedding - right from wearing Indian ensembles to riding in on a horse - earned him brownie points.

Noah Centineo

Watching Lara Jean Covey (Lana Condor) fake date Peter Kavinsky (Noah Centineo) in To All the Boys I've Loved Before, made us want to date Peter too. Noah's brown eyes and easy manner have charmed women across ages; he's definitely the Internet's favourite boyfriend.

Nick Sagar

Praise the lord for feel-good Christmas specials because this year's Netflix offering is The Princess Switch, which features Nick Sagar (and his perfect dimples) in a romantic role, as Kevin. The most memorable scene in the movie has to be Vanessa Hudgens as Lady Margaret saying, "Have you ever seen Kevin with his shirt off?" in admiration of Sagar's six-pack. We feel ya, Lady Margaret.

Jim Sarbh

Jim definitely had a moment with his role in the blockbuster Padmaavat but he also caught our attention with his dreamy/realistic boyfriend portrayal in the music video of Prateek Kuhad's Cold/mess.
