Several Indian actresses and Pakistani actresses have beat their Chinese counterparts in a poll to determine the sexiest Asian woman.
In the same poll, Priyanka Chopra has been voted the "Sexiest Asian Woman". The 35-year-old 'Quantico' actor topped the 2017 edition of the popular '50 Sexiest Asian Women' poll by London-based weekly newspaper Eastern Eye for a record-breaking fifth time.' She reclaimed the top slot from Deepika Padukone, who had been voted the sexiest Asian in 2016. Padukone is ranked third this year.
"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," she said. India's TV star Nia Sharma came in second, holding on to her position as the sexiest television star in the 2017 list. With Padukone at third, Alia Bhatt (4) and Pakistani actor Mahira Khan (5) complete the top five. The rest of the top 10 includes actresses Drashti Dhami (6), Katrina Kaif (7), Shraddha Kapoor (8), Gauahar Khan (9) and Rubina Dilaik (10). The highest placed British woman is once again TV actress Jasmin Walia (28) and Canadian actress Hannah Simone (35), a newcomer in the list, is the highest-placed North American. Madhuri Dixit, 48, is the oldest lady in the 2015 countdown ranked 44th and 20-year-old actress Radhika Madan is the youngest, ranked 24th.
Others in the 2015 list include Shraddha Kapoor (19), Bipasha Basu (25), Alia Bhatt (27), Parineeti Chopra (33), Mehreen Syed (38) and Kanika Kapoor (48). The complete ’50 Sexiest Asian Women’ 2015 list, which is compiled from votes on social media, will be published in ‘Eastern Eye’ on Friday (December 4).
