Deepika Padukone for the first time becomes Asia’s Sexiest Woman after dethroning four-time winner Priyanka Chopra. This was published by the Britain-based Eastern Eye newspaper, which conducts an annual poll where millions of voters pour from across the globe.
The “Ram-Leela” actress who is currently gearing up for her Hollywood’s debut “XxX: Return Of Xander Cage” is on cloud nine, when she heard this.
Responding to this she said “ It does bring a 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 are sexy.”
The “Baywatch“ star Priyanka Chopra was pushed back to the back seat acquiring second position and television stars Nia Sharma and Drishti Dhami was placed in the third place and fourth place respectively. “Dear Zindagi” star Alia Bhatt for the first time made the list and clinched the fifth position.
Other stars like Sanaya Irani (6th), Katrina Kaif (7th), Sonam Kapoor ( 8th), Pakistani Actress Mahira Khan (9th) and last but not the least Gauhar khan who is happy with her 10th position.
The cherry on the cake is Nita Ambani who was ranked 32nd position. She is the oldest of all, aged 53 years. She is the first women to be ever included in the editor’s choice in the 13-year history of the countdown.
