She reclaimed the top slot from Deepika Padukone, who had been voted the sexiest Asian in 2016.
Priyanka Chopra was voted as the Sexiest Asian Woman in the world by a UK-based publication, Eastern Eye.
Eastern Eye editor and founder of the 50 Sexiest Asian Women, Asjad Nazir stated that Priyanka was a ideal mix of "beauty, brains, bravery and a kind heart".
Thanking the fans for the honor, the 35-year-old "Quantico" star said, "I can not actually take credit for this at all. Thank you Eastern Eye... you do know how to flatter a girl!" Being close to global star's position, Nia said, "But seeing my name next to her on the list is no less a dream and struck me with a frenzied happiness..." She is the flawless mix of beauty, brains, bravery and a kind heart."Small screen beauty Nia Sharma came in second and held onto her position as the sexiest television star in the list".
JJ Watt named SI Sportsperson of the Year
Watt has divided $30.15 million of the donations for Americares, Feeding America, SBP and Save the Children. The remaining $7 million is to be aside for distribution in 2018 as relief efforts evolve.
He further added, "Priyanka Chopra has become an incredible worldwide ambassador for India and is smashing through glass ceilings all over the world".
So, finally, Priyanka Chopra reclaims her crown! Quite surprisingly, Nia Sharma sat atop second with Alia Bhatt on fourth and Mahira Khan on the fifth one. She is now in NY to shoot for the third season of the show, which is expected to premiere next year. "No.1 spot shall always belong to @priyankachopra. for she leads. she defines power and she's PC irreplaceable. insurmountable. badass." she wrote. "I owe my fans this joy and want to share it with them despite not being able to digest the development", Sharma told a news agency.
The top 10 of the list does see a number of high profile absentees, though Katrina Kaif (7) and Shraddha Kapoor (8) do make the grade.
