Actress Priyanka Chopra's annus mirabilis ensured that she reclaimed her top spot in the list of Sexiest Asian women by the British newspaper, Eastern Eye. Thanking the publication, the actress said, "I can not actually take credit for this at all. Full credit should be given to my genetics and your optics", Chopra said, thanking everyone who voted in the online poll for her.

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". Previous year's victor Padukone found herself on the third spot, with another popular name from Hindi cinema, Alia Bhatt, on fourth.

The Quantico actor thanked everyone who voted for her.

In the list, TV actress Nia Sharma acquired the second spot while the "Bajirao Mastani" star Deepika Padukone was on the third position.

The publication notes that her ranking rounds off another dream year for the actress, which saw her make incredible strides internationally with the release of her debut Hollywood feature "Baywatch", win another People's Choice Award for her acclaimed television show "Quantico" and sign further high-profile films in the West. Interestingly, Chopra has dethroned her peer and friend Deepika Padukone, who had bagged the honour past year. Thank you Eastern Eye and to everyone who voted for me to be Asia's Sexiest Woman, for what I'm told is a record breaking number of times! The rest of the list include Drashti Dhami, Katrina Kaif, Shraddha Kapoor, Gauhar Khan and Rubina Dilaik. A men's list is set to be released on December 15.

This is the 5th time Chopra has topped the list.
