Mahira Khan bags 5th spot in Sexiest Asian Woman list

Mahira Khan bags 5th spot in Sexiest Asian Woman list

"Consistency is key", said Priyanka Chopra. Voted the sexiest Asian woman for the fifth time, she just had to thank her parents for passing on the '"sexiest" genes.

Within a week of her worldwide film, A Kid Like Jake, being selected for the Sundance Film Festival, there's good news pouring in for Priyanka Chopra again. "For me your humility & being a global symbol for girl power is your sexiest quality", Asjad Nazir, editor of Eastern Eye newspaper, the media house behind the popular list, wrote on Twitter while announcing Chopra's name.

"I can not actually take credit for this at all". Full credit should be given to my genetics and optics. I feel grateful and am humbled.

Reclaiming her lost position, Priyanka Chopra has once again topped the list of the "50 Sexist Asian Woman" beating co-star Deepika Padukone, who won the title a year ago.

This year's flu vaccine might only be 10% effective against predominant strain
The country saw double the usual number of deaths from the virus and triple the number of overall cases. Despite this new information, health experts say it's still important to get your flu shot.

While Chopra ranked at the top, television actress Nia Sharma made it a surprising second.

The top 10 include Priyanka at 1, Indian TV actress Nia Sharma at 2, Padukone ruled the third spot, Alia Bhatt (4) and Pakistani actor Mahira Khan (5) complete the top five. But she isn't new to it, having already won it four times before. In a statement, Nia said, "I dare to dream of reaching where Priyanka Chopra is one day".

With more social media coming out for Priyanka Chopra, the actress' popularity burgeoned to this peak after millions of her admirers voted her for multiple times. But who knows! For now, the fans have proven that they clearly adore Deepika much more than Priyanka Chopra!
