Priyanka Chopra replaces Deepika Padukone as Sexiest Asian Woman
Priyanka Chopra, who is busy wowing her fans in the West and across the globe, has regained the title of the world's "Sexiest Asian Woman", after losing it to her Bajirao Mastani co-star Deepika Padukone last year. For a record breaking fifth time, the Quantico star has topped the list of ’50 Sexiest Asian Women’ complied by a London based newspaper called Eastern Eye.
"I cannot actually take credit for this at all. Full credit should be given to my genetics and your optics. I feel grateful and am humbled. Consistency is key”, said the desi girl to the press, thanking everyone who voted for her in the online poll.
Eastern Eye mentioned that PeeCee is rounding off what could be called as a dream year, where she achieved great international success. She made her debut Hollywood film Baywatch, and won another People’s Choice Award for the popular television show Quantico. According to reports, Priyanka has also signed for other high-profile films in the West.
With 20 million followers on Instagram, Priyanka is also making great strides as a producer. Asjad Nazir, the entertainment editor of Eastern Eye and founder of the 50 Sexiest Asian Women list, said Priyanka has the perfect mix of "beauty, brains, bravery and a kind heart".
Following Priyanka in the list is India’s Nia Sharma, moving up by one place from last year. Deepika Pakukone slid to third and Alia Bhatt made it to number 4. Pakistani actress Mahira Khan bags the fifth place.
