Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra regains sexiest Asian woman title

Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra was named the world's sexiest Asian woman by UK-based weekly newspaper Eastern Eye on Thursday.

The 32-year-old A-list star, who last won the title in 2012, took the No 1 spot on the top 50 list after a public poll, which saw over 10 million votes being cast around the world.

TV actress Drashti Dhami​, who had led the voting at one stage, came in a close second, while TV actress Sanaya Irani came in third.

Last year's winner Katrina Kaif ended up in fourth place.



Chopra said: "Someone once told me sexy is what sexy does and you do it best when you are being yourself. I don't know what I did to deserve this but I'll happily accept this title.

"I am very flattered to have been named Eastern Eye's sexiest woman once again. The fact that this is decided from a public poll across the world makes it even more special to me."

Eastern Eye showbiz editor Asjad Nazir, founder of the “Sexiest Asian” list and chair of the judging panel, described Chopra as an important international icon for India. 

"Priyanka has become a strong symbol of girl power with projects like 'Mary Kom' and represented her country admirably around the world. That is why more women than men actually voted for her this year, and why she was trending across Twitter during the voting process," he said. 



The 2014 rankings trended heavily on social media across India and Pakistan during the voting process.

The list of the top 50 Sexiest Men is due to be released next week.
