London: Bollywood diva Priyanka Chopra has taken the title of the “Sexiest Asian Women” in an annual UK poll. Quantico actress came out on top following millions of votes pouring in from across the globe on social media for the 2015 edition of the popular ’50 Sexiest Asian Women’ poll conducted by London-based weekly newspaper ‘Eastern Eye’.
“Now that’s a title I’m happy to hold on to. I’m bringing sexy back. A big thank you to those who have voted for me. Also, thank you 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,” said Priyanka. This is the third time in the past four years that Priyanka has topped the list.
“Priyanka Chopra is making India proud on the global stage and has been winning loads of admirers.

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 and music, the multi-talented actress has shown just how far hard work can take you,” said Asjad Nazir, Eastern Eye Entertainment Editor and founder of the list.
