Priyanka Chopra has been voted the “Sexiest Asian Woman” in the world in an annual UK poll released in London on Tuesday. The 35-year-old Quantico actor topped the 2017 edition of the popular ‘50 Sexiest Asian Women’ poll by London-based weekly newspaper Eastern Eye for a record-breaking fifth time.
She reclaimed the top slot from Deepika Padukone, who had been voted the sexiest Asian in 2016. Padukone is ranked third this year.
“I cannot actually take credit for this at all. Full credit should be given to my genetics and your optics,” Chopra said, thanking everyone who voted in the online poll for her. “I feel grateful and am humbled. Consistency is key,” she said.
The publication notes that her ranking rounds off another dream year for the actor, which saw her make incredible strides internationally with the release of her debut Hollywood feature Baywatch, win another People’s Choice Award for her acclaimed television show Quantico and sign further high-profile films in the West.
The A-list star also continued to make giant strides as a producer and as one of the hottest Indian stars on social media, crossing 20 million followers on Instagram.
