Titled as ’50 Sexiest Asian Women’ the annual poll run by a popular UK-based Eastern Eye basically ranks actresses on the basis of their achievements of the year, popularity, public appearances and how strongly they have managed to leave an impact on the audience.
2018 verdict declares Deepika as the ‘Sexiest Asian Woman’ , dethroning Priyanka who has now been pushed to the number 2 spot followed by TV actress Nia Sharma who has been ranked at 3. Pakistani actress Mahira Khan came in fourth and held onto her title as the sexiest Pakistani as she marked another strong year as a strong symbol of girl power and raising money for charity.
Last year’s topper, actress Priyanka Chopra, came in second as she celebrated another year of being a great global ambassador for India, including her own high-profile nuptials to singer Nick Jonas in Rajasthan over the weekend.
Interestingly, 2018 has not only been an extra special year for Deepika but also Priyanka considering they both got married this year. Also, PC continues to be a global ambassador so dropping to number 2 position doesn’t really change anything that she’s already achieved. Congratulations to all the beautiful women who have made it to this list of Sexiest Asian Women 2018. Also Read: Top 10 Sexiest Asian Women 2017: Nia Sharma Beats Deepika Padukone
