Bollywood Beauty Deepika Padukone has been named as the sexiest Asian woman of the year 2016. The title, which has been bestowed on Priyanka Chopra for the last four years, now proudly belongs to Deepika. The actress, who’s climbing up the international radar, commented on the honour, “It does bring a smile to my face. But sexy means different things to different people. For me, it’s not just physical. Being comfortable with who you are, is sexy. Confidence is sexy. Innocence and vulnerability is sexy.”
Talking about Deepika, the newspaper which puts together the annual list wrote, "With huge films releasing next year, it looks like 2017 will be an even bigger year and more international producers will try stealing away the jewel in Bollywood's crown."
Priyanka was pushed to the second place while Alia Bhatt cracked the list for the first time and stood proud at the fifth spot. Katrina Kaif, Sonam Kapoor and Mahira Khan snagged the seventh, eighth and ninth spots respectively.
