Last year, Priyanka Chopra defeated Padmavati actress Deepika Padukone who was voted the sexiest Asian woman in 2016, and this time, Padukone has claims her top position back. This definitely add to the dream year of Bollywood queen Deepika Padukone as she gave one of the biggest films of the year, Padmaavat which crashed the box office. Then, she lived the most special day of her life last month when she married the love of her life Ranveer Singh in a dreamy destination wedding ceremony.
Talking about this year’s runners up Priyanka Chopra, the actress also got married to American singer Nick Jonas in a fairytale wedding at Umaid Bhawan Palace in Jodhpur. The actress had two wedding ceremonies- White wedding as well as the Hindu wedding, and looked breath-taking in both.
Also, interestingly, Deepika Padukone earlier enjoyed the status of being the most followed Indian celebrity on Instagram with around 24 million followers. She was untouchable, however, it seems that PeeCee has clearly surpassed the Padmaavat actress in terms of popularity on social media. As per the current status, Deepika Padukone’s followers are 29 million while Priyanka has crossed the 31 million mark. There’s significant difference in their followers on social media.
Looks like these two leading ladies are neck to neck in the power game.
