KARACHI: Exceptionally talented Bollywood starlet Priyanka Chopra regained the crown of world’s sexiest Asian woman for the year 2014.

The actor-singer bagged record-breaking votes from different continents for the UK based Eastern Eye newspaper’s poll which is globally known for its annual list.

Priyanka won the title for second time, last year Katrina Kaif was voted world’s sexiest Asian woman.

Priyanka defeated tough competition from some of the most stunning women from around the world in the 11th edition of what has now become the most definitive list of its kind.

“Someone once told me, ‘Sexy is what sexy does and you do it best when you are yourself!’ I don’t know what I did to deserve this but I’ll happily accept this title! I am very flattered to have be named Eastern Eye’s Sexiest Woman once again. The fact that this is decided from a public poll across the world makes this even more special to me. Lots of love to everyone who voted and here’s to always being yourself,” said Priyanka.

The highest placed American on the list was Anger Management star Noureen DeWulf (15), who dominated the non-Asian vote. The highest placed Pakistani was Humaima Malick (20) and the highest placed British girl was reality TV star Jasmin Walia (32). The oldest woman in the list was 47-year-old Bollywood icon Madhuri Dixit (28).

The mass interest in the 2014 list was such that it was trending across India and Pakistan during the voting process and over 10 million votes were cast.
