Our favourite desi girl Priyanka Chopra has been named the world’s Sexiest Asian Woman for a record-breaking fifth time by the UK based newspaper Eastern Eye. In 2016, Deepika Padukone had topped the globally renowned long-running list. This year has been phenomenal for PeeCee in terms of international success – the release of her Hollywood debut Baywatch, a People’s Choice Award for her TV serial Quantico and signing her second film in the west.
I cannot actually take credit for this at all. Full credit should be given to my genetics and your optics! Thank you Eastern Eye and to everyone who voted for me to be Asia’s Sexiest Woman, for what I’m told is a record breaking number of times! I feel grateful and am humbled. Consistency is key.
Now in its 14th year, the list is based on the votes sent in by fans around the world, media coverage, impact and heat generated across various social media platforms. Eastern Eye’s award-winning Entertainment editor Asjad Nazir, who founded the list and puts it together annually said
Priyanka Chopra has become an incredible international ambassador for India and is smashing through glass ceilings all over the world. Apart from being courageous enough to fly into the unknown professionally, she has also done a lot of work for social causes, become a strong symbol for girl power and is making a young generation have big dreams. She is the perfect mix of beauty, brains, bravery and a kind heart.
Congratulations, PC! You make us very, very proud.
