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.
And now, the Bollywood beauty is the ‘Sexiest Asian Woman’ in the world, according to a poll conducted by London-based weekly Eastern Eye.
The winner of the Miss World 2000 pageant, dethrones Deepika Padukone, who topped the list last year.
This marks the fifth consecutive year that the global star has made her presence felt on the ‘Sexiest Asian Woman’ list. She previously held the top spot in 2014 and 2015.
Thanking the fans for the honor, the 35-year-old ‘Quantico’ star said, “I cannot actually take credit for this at all. Full credit should be given to my genetics and your optics! Thank you Eastern Eye and to everyone who voted for me to be Asia’s Sexiest Woman, for what I’m told is a record breaking number of times! I feel grateful and am humbled. Consistency is key.”
The ‘Padmavati’ star came in third, one below TV star Nia Sharma while Alia Bhatt held the fourth spot.
