Interestingly, Chopra has dethroned her peer and friend Deepika Padukone, who had bagged the honour a year ago. Although we have to wait for some more time before Priyanka Chopra announces her next Bollywood project, it seems that the actress is grabbing eyeballs yet again for featuring in the list of Asia's Sexiest Woman and that too for being ranked on top. 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 can not actually take credit for this at all", she said, adding, "full credit should be given to my genetics and your optics!" Thank you @EasternEye. you do know how to flatter a girl!
"But seeing my name next to her (Priyanka) in the list is no less a dream and struck me with a frenzied happiness". She is now in NY to shoot for the third season of the show, which is expected to premiere next year. "Consistency is key", she said. After taking the third spot as the sexiest Asian woman in 2016, Nia Sharma has jumped to the second spot. It said of Chopra's rise as an worldwide star in America that "we are now expecting America to buy a big diamond ring, get down on one knee and propose to her". "I owe my fans this joy and want to share it with them despite not being able to digest the development", said Sharma.
Deepika Padukone slips down to third, followed by Alia Bhatt and Verna-actress Mahira Khan.
Television actress Drashti Dhami took the 6th position and the Tiger Zinda Hai actress Katrina Kaif was on 7th.
This honour has made this year even more great for the actress who is on a successful run this year.
The other editor's choice is popular Pakistani singer Momina Mustehsan, for her stride in a male-dominated music industry in her homeland Pakistan.
