Priyanka Chopra holds onto sexiest woman crown in “50 sexiest Asian women list” founded by award winning Entertainment Editor Asjad Nazir for UK based Eastern Eye newspaper.
Amongst all the top 50 sexiest women figuring on the recently revealed Planet list Priyanka Chopra tops the list. The list is founded by none other than Asjad Nazir the award winning Entertainment Editor of UK based Eastern Eye newspaper. The complete list will feature in Eastern Eye on Friday 11th Dec, 2015.
Priyanka Chopra once again beat off tough global competition to retain her title as the sexiest Asian woman in the world this year, as featured in 2015’s “50 Sexiest Asian Women” list.
The singer & actress came out on top following millions of votes pouring in from across the globe for the 2015 edition of the popular annual poll conducted by UK based Eastern Eye newspaper. This is the 3rd time in the past 4 years that Priyanka has topped the long running list of 50 sexiest Asian women on the planet.
The stunning win rounds off another dream year for the actress, which includes winning accolades for her 2014 film Mary Kom, hit Bollywood film Dil Dhadakne Do and American TV serial Quantico.
On the eve of gaining this recognition Priyanka Chopra averred, “Now that’s a title I’m happy to hold on to. I’m bringing sexy back! A big thank you to everyone who’s voted for me. Thank you also to Eastern Eye for making me feel ‘sexy’; well, at least for another year. A piece of advice to the ladies – it’s all in the mind. Remember, sexy is as sexy does.”.
While entertainment editor of Eastern Eye averred, “Priyanka Chopra is doing India proud on the global stage and winning loads of admirers. This was illustrated by the largest ever number of votes by non – Asians that she received from all over the world. She is clearly building bridges internationally through her art and will continue to do so in the coming years. And by excelling in TV, film & music, the multi – talented actress has shown just how far hard work can take you.”
The mass interest in the 12th edition of the list was such that it was trending on Twitter across India & Pakistan during the voting process.
Popular television actress Sanaya Irani rose one place from last year to come 2nd and fellow small screen star Drashti Dhami took the 3rd spot. A – list Bollywood actresses Deepika Padukone (4) & Katrina Kaif (5) completed the top 5. Others in the top 10 are Nia Sharma (6), Kareena Kapoor Khan (7), Gauahar Khan (8), Sonam Kapoor (9) and the highest placed Pakistani, Mahira Khan, (10).
The highest placed newcomer in this year’s list is young Indian television actress Niti Taylor (15), who thanked her fans for all their love, support & blessing, which elevated her into the list for the 1st time.
Just like in the past few years, the biggest surprise was the dominance of television stars. Sanaya Irani (2), Drashti Dhami (3), Nia Sharma (6) & Gauahar Khan (8) all retained their places in the top 10. Other small screen actresses in the list included Preetika Rao (11), Shakti Mohan (12), Asha Negi (13), Surbhi Jyoti (17), Charlie Chauhan (22), Hina Khan (26), Anita Hassanandani (28), Sukiriti Kandpal (31) & Mohena Singh (43).
Asjad Nazir further averred, “There are 27 small screen stars in the list this year, which once again shows television has become the most powerful & popular medium of all. Even the winner, Priyanka Chopra, made her television debut with Quantico this year. This shows that TV plays arguably the biggest part in the lives of people around the world. It also illustrates why so many movie producers are now signing TV actresses for big film projects and why movie stars are venturing into TV.”
The highest placed British woman is once again Jasmin Walia (28) & Canadian actress Hannah Simone (35), a newcomer in the list, is the highest placed North American. At 48 years of age, Madhuri Dixit (44) is the oldest lady in the 2015 countdown & 20 year old actress Radhika Madan (24) is the youngest.

Asjad Nazir concluded by explaining, “What continues to make this list really special is the strong presence of ‘real women’ who the public can relate to. Most fans look at the all – round qualities of those they are voting for and that is why more women than men vote annually.”
