Deepika Padukone beats Priyanka Chopra to become the SEXIEST Asian Woman, as per a UK poll – We’re jealous of Ranveer Singh and Nick Jonas! Why? Who wouldn’t? They married the sexiest Asian women after all. What are we talking about? Okay, let us help you get some perspective. UK-based publication Eastern Eye has released a list of “50 Sexiest Asian Women” after a poll was conducted in the UK. According to the poll, Deepika Padukone has topped the list of sexiest Asian women and Priyanka Chopra has found the second spot.
Calling 2018 a “dream year” for Deepika, courtesy her stunning Cannes appearance and her wedding to Ranveer, Asjad Nazir, the newspaper’s Entertainment Editor shared his thoughts on Deepika and her top ranking. He said, “Apart from being the undisputed queen of Bollywood and a strikingly beautiful star, what really makes Deepika Padukone special is how big her heart is and how grounded she has remained throughout her remarkable rise.
“Deepika’s humility has been inspirational and the way she makes a positive impact through raising awareness about mental health is showing everyone that being yourself and letting your inner light shine is the new sexy,” he said. Last year, Priyanka was crowned the sexiest Asian woman. While she couldn’t retain the top spot, the Quantico actress took the second spot in the list. The actress, who recently married Nick, has had a good year as well. She wrapped the filming of Isn’t It Romantic? and kick-started work on The Sky Is Pink, her Bollywood movie.
The third place was taken by Indian television actress Nia Sharma. “As much as I want to hide my excitement right now, I cannot help but smile brightly and let out a big hurray because it truly feels awesome,” said Sharma, referring to her third spot.
