Nia Sharma BEATS Deepika Padukone To Become The 2nd “Sexiest Asian Woman”


In a recently concluded online poll by a UK newspaper, global actress Priyanka Chopra received the title of the “Sexiest Asian Woman” in the world.

London based weekly newspaper Eastern Eye had conducted the poll for 50 sexiest Asian Women in the world. With 2017 edition, Priyank Chopra has topped the chart for record fifth time.

Thanking everyone who voted for her, Quantico actress took to Instagram to express her feelings. She wrote, “I should thank my mom and dad for this award…lol! It’s purely my genetics and your optics.. and a big thank you for the immense love you guys give me every single time which has put me on top of the list 5 times over. Thank you #EasternEye… you do know how to flatter a girl!”

Priyanka Copra claimed the top spot in the poll beating Deepika Padukone, who was the “Sexiest Asian Women 2016”. However, Padmavati actress is third on the list this year. 2nd spot is going to shock everyone, as no one would have expected this.

The second spot in the poll is not acquired by Katrina Kaif or Alia Bhatt or Sonam Kapoor, but by popular TV actress Nia Sharma. She came third last year. Happy with the result, the actress said that she can now dare to reach Chopra’s place.

Nia Sharma said, “But seeing my name next to her (Priyanka) in the list is no less a dream and struck me with a frenzied happiness… I owe my fans this joy and want to share it with them despite not being able to digest the development,”

I feel best when I’m behind the wheel… #route2017

On the work front, Nia Sharma was part of Jamai Raja and Khatron Ke Khiladi Season 8. Deepika Padukone acquired 3rd spot, whereas Alia Bhatt got 4th position and Pakistani actress Mahira Khan at 5.

Rest of the top spots in top 10 is acquired by Drashti Dhami (6), Katrina Kaif (7), Shraddha Kapoor (8), Gauahar Khan (9) and Rubina Dilaik (10).

The ranking is defiantly pretty shocking and irrational, as there are actresses, who have not done multiple shows or Bollywood films.

This is how Twitter reacted to Nia Sharma taking 2nd Spot on “Sexiest Asian Women” poll.
