Actress Deepika Padukone has dethroned Priyanka Chopra to become the Sexiest Asian Woman of 2016. Deepika won the title for the first time in the popular list that is annually published by Britain-based Eastern Eye newspaper.
The 2016 edition of the popular annual poll was based on millions of votes pouring in from across the globe.
“Well, it does bring a smile to my face but sexy means different things to different people. For me it’s not just physical. For me being comfortable with who you are, is sexy! Confidence is sexy! Innocence and vulnerability is sexy,” Padukone told the media on receiving the title of Sexiest Asian Woman.
Priyanka was pushed down to second place. Actor Nia Sharma took the third spot, and reclaimed the title as the sexiest television star. TV actress Drashti Dhami came fourth. Alia Bhatt cracked the top 10 for the first time and was ranked fifth.
Others in the top 10 are Sanaya Irani (sixth), Katrina Kaif (seventh), Sonam Kapoor (eight), Pakistani actress Mahira Khan (ninth) and Gauhar Khan (10th).
