Katrina Kaif voted the sexiest Asian woman in the world

Katrina Kaif – the hottest thing in Bollywood has now been voted to be the sexiest Asian woman in the world fourth time in a row. The Hong Kong born model turned actress, Katrina Turquotte, better known as Katrina Kaif, had no major releases last year. Her last film was Jab tak hai jaan that was released in 2012. But this has not affected her popularity at all. The survey was conducted by Eastern Eye, a British weekly magazine. Asjad Nazir – the editor of the magazine who put the list of 50 sexiest Asian women in the world said that the win was a close call. The number of Bollywood and television actresses from India who dominated the list were overwhelming. The second place was secured by Priyanka Chopra with her Daddy’s little girl looks while the third position went to the hotshot television actress Drashti Dhami. Bangalorean beauty Deepika Padukone secured fourth place in the list.

The fourth win for the former Hawaiian beauty contest winner comes at the eve of the release of her new film, Dhoom 3. The survey has obviously not hurt the chances of the film.

Learning of her position in the list, Katrina expressed her delight, saying, “I didn’t know it was a record! That’s a nice surprise and a lot of fun to hear. I like it because Eastern Eye newspaper is the one my sisters see because they live in London. It’s lovely, but also people are reacting to what they see. And of course it’s very flattering.”

"Obviously if everyone were to see me when I wake up in the morning or in my track pants and then vote for me, then maybe I would be a little bit more believing of it myself”, she added.

Sonam Kapoor and Sanaya Irani also made the top 10 list. The highest new entry was bagged by Shraddha Kapoor – the Aashiqui 2star who narrowly missed the top ten list. Other notable Indian names in the top 50 list included Nia Sharma, Asha Negi, Rubina Dilaik, Parineeti Chopra, Sophie Choudry, Sunidhi Chauhan, Shreya Ghosal etc while the highest placed Pakistani star was Humaima Mallick who was placed at 15th place. The older Bollywood icons like Sridevi and Madhuri Dixit also made the list.

Popularity of Katrina is shown by the fact that in addition to topping this list, she is also in the top 10 of Forbes list of 100 celebrities in terms of income and popularity.
