Four-time winner Priyanka Chopra to become the Sexiest Asian Woman has been dethroned by actress Deepika Padukone. Deepika has become the Sexiest Asian Woman of 2016 for the first time in the popular list that is annually published by Britain-based Eastern Eye newspaper. Priyanka Chopra was pushed down to second place.
Deepika, who is soon set to make her Hollywood debut with “xXx: Return of Xander Cage” opposite actor Vin Diesel was excited about the win. “It does bring smile to my face, but sexy means different things to different people. For me, it’s not just physical. Being comfortable with who you are, is sexy. Confidence is sexy. Innocence and vulnerability is sexy,” she said.
The 2016 edition of the popular annual poll was based on millions of votes pouring in from across the globe. Alia Bhatt cracked the top 10 for the first time and was ranked fifth. Katrina Kaif (7) and Sonam Kapoor (8) also made the list.
