Priyanka Chopra voted Sexiest Asian Woman, dethroning Deepika Padukone

Deepika Padukone enters the 'most followed Indians on Twitter' list by beating Priyanka Chopra

Bollywood diva Priyanka Chopra initially aspired to study aeronautical engineering or criminal psychology and later she accepted offers to join the Indian film industry, which came as a result of her beauty pageant wins, making her Bollywood debut in The Hero: Love Story of a Spy in 2003.

The 35-year-old star topped the list poll by London-based weekly newspaper Eastern Eye for a record-breaking fifth time.

The actress beat her fellow Bollywood turned Hollywood debutant Deepika Padukone for the title.

The social media was filled with people who were astonished at the fact that the superstar is as unkempt as the rest of the people, at least when it comes to checking her e-mails.

The title was given to Priyanka by United Kingdom based newspaper Eastern Eye.

Eastern Eye editor and founder of the 50 Sexiest Asian Women, Asjad Nazir stated that Priyanka was a ideal mix of "beauty, brains, bravery and a kind heart".

Delighted Priyanka said, 'I can not actually take credit for this at all.

Talking about the honour, Priyanka Chopra however gives the credit for featuring on the list to genetics and optics. And guess what! The list of Asia's sexiest women is out! Last year, Nia Sharma had beaten Katrina Kaif to grab the third spot on the list and this time she's occupied the second spot, beating DP.

British-Pakistani showbiz reporter Asjad Nazir, who founded the list and puts it together annually, told this scribe: "Mahira Khan has become a powerful symbol of girl power in Pakistan, both for youngsters who have big dreams and for working mothers. I owe my fans this joy and want to share it with them despite not being able to digest the development", Sharma said.
