Padukone, whose next film role is of an acid attack survivor in upcoming Chhapaak, has been voted as the Sexiest Asian Woman of the Decade, above Bollywood mainstay Priyanka Chopra.
Mahira holds on to her title of the sexiest Pakistani woman on the planet for the fifth year in a row and is also named sexiest Pakistani of the decade.
Speaking about the vote, the Bin Roye actor said she was grateful to all her fans who continue to vote for her every year. She said this is for a decade of love, ups and downs, support and magic. “I have never considered myself sexy, but I believe when you do you – that’s sexy. And I hope I can continue to do just that.”
The list is based on online votes, media coverage, impact and heat generated across various social media platforms.
Eastern Eye entertainment editor and founder of the list, Asjad Nazir, said the one thing that connects all the women featured on the list is that they have all become “symbols of girl power and are empowering women and girls globally”.
