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.
TV star Nia Sharma stands on the 2nd position.
Having got the laurel, the joyful and proud Priyanka remarked, "I can not take credit for this at all". I feel grateful and am humbled. Nia Sharma congratulated Priyanka with an open heart and the Quantico star also responded with enthusiasm. Whether it's the embellished silver slip-dress from Monisha Jaising's collection that she wore while presenting an award to John Oliver at Emmy's this year or her most-talked about Ralph Lauren trench coat gown with an unbelievably long train that she wore at the Met Gala, this beauty is a fashion inspiration. She said, "It was so silly".
Entertainment editor who founded the list and puts it together annually, said, "Priyanka Chopra has become an incredible worldwide ambassador for India and is smashing through glass ceilings all over the world". Apart from Priyanak, Nia Sharma, Deepika Padukone, Alia Bhatt and Drashti Dhami are in the top 6.
Priyanka Chopra is a globetrotter by choice and also by profession. However, there was one person for Nia Sharma who made it all the more special for her and it was none other than global desi girl Priyanka Chopra. "Thank you Eastern Eye. you do know how to flatter a girl!" They make me feel confident and I feel I exist because of them.
