Quantico actress Priyanka Chopra voted the ‘Sexiest Asian Woman’ in the world in an annual UK poll released in London on Tuesday. It’s the fifth time when Priyanka bagged the topmost position in the list. The 35-year-old actress topped the 2017 edition of coveted ’50 Sexiest Asian Women’ poll conducted by a London-based newspaper Eastern Eye for the fifth time. Priyanka Chopra defeated Padmavati actress Deepika Padukone who was voted the sexiest Asian woman in 2016. This time, Padukone claims the third slot.
“I cannot actually take credit for this at all. Full credit should be given to my genetics and your optics,” Priyanka Chopra said thanking her admirers who voted for her in the poll. She added, “I feel grateful and am humbled. Consistency is key.”
On learning about the news, she wrote on her Twitter, “I should thank my mom and dad for this award...lol! It’s purely their genetics and also the immense love you guys give me every single time which has put me on top of the list 5 times over. Thank you @EasternEye... you do know how to flatter a girl! #AsjadNazirSexyList2017.”
