Priyanka Chopra beats Deepika Padukone, voted 'Sexiest Asian Woman' in United Kingdom poll

Losing the top slot to Quantico star and Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra, Nia bagged the second spot ahead of last year's victor Deepika Padukone. However, there was one person for Nia Sharma who made it all the more special for her and it was none other than global desi girl Priyanka Chopra. She said, "It was so silly". Nia is overwhelmed by the news, she expressed her joy and thanked her fans!

Not only is the 35-year-old Indian star an actress, singer and film producer, but she also was crowned the victor of the Miss World 200 pageant.

The "Quantico" star has topped a list of 50 "Sexiest Asian Women", compiled by London-based weekly newspaper Eastern Eye.

This rounds off another dream year for the actress, which saw her make incredible strides internationally with the release of debut Hollywood feature Baywatch, another People's Choice Award for her acclaimed TV serial Quantico and signing further high profile films in the west. "She is the ideal mix of beauty, brains, bravery and a kind heart", said Asjad Nazir. Quite surprisingly, Nia Sharma sat atop second with Alia Bhatt on fourth and Mahira Khan on the fifth one. "Consistency is key", said Priyanka Chopra. "Apart from being courageous enough to fly into unknown, professionally she has become a strong symbol of girl power".
