However, singing sensation Momina Mustehsan was the new inclusion from Pakistan and she secured 37th position in the list.
Editor of ‘Eastern Eye’ and founder of 50 Sexiest Asian Women, Asjad Nazir was all praise of this superstar from Pakistan.
He said “Mahira Khan has become a powerful symbol of girl power in Pakistan, both for youngsters who have big dreams and for working mothers. She has also spoken up about important social causes including the empowerment of women in Pakistan and has been a great ambassador for her country around the world. She has combined all that with how great she always looks. Mahira showed both inner and outer beauty.”
Priyanka Chopra was voted as the Sexiest Asian Women on the list. She edged out Deepika Padukone who took the spot in 2016.
Priyanka humbly said, “I cannot actually take credit for this at all. Full credit should be given to my genetics and your optics. I feel grateful and am humbled. Consistency is key.”
Asjad Nazir called Chopra a perfect mix of ‘beauty, brain, and bravery’. He honoured the lady with profound compliments.
He further said that “Priyanka Chopra has become an incredible international ambassador for India and is smashing through glass ceilings all over the world. Apart from being courageous enough to fly into the unknown professionally, she has also done a lot of work for social causes, become a strong symbol for girl power and is making a young generation have big dreams.”
Following Priyanka Chopra, Nia Sharma secured the second position and Deepika Padukone and Alia Bhatt secured fourth and fifth position respectively.
Katrina Kaif and Shraddha Kapoor too were included in the batch of the top 10 of the list.
