Priyanka Chopra
The stunning 32-year-old Bollywood star topped a poll by UK-based Eastern Eye who say she's become 'a strong symbol of girl power'

Indian Bollywood star Priyanka Chopra is once again the world’s sexiest Asian woman after winning back her -le.

The stunning 32-year-old brunette lost out last year to Katrina Kaif, 31.

However, this year she pipped TV actress Drashti Dhami, 29, to the post, knocking Kaif down to fourth position in the top 50 annual poll carried out by UK-based Eastern Eye.

The magazine’s showbiz editor Asjad Nazir, who is also chair of the judging panel, described Priyanka as being beautiful, both inside and out.

He said: "Apart from being one of the most stunning women in the world, Priyanka has demonstrated she is beautiful on the inside too with important humanitarian work.

"She has also become a strong symbol of girl power with projects like 'Mary Kom' and represented her country admirably around the world.

"That is why more women than men actually voted for her this year and why she was trending across Twitter during the voting process."

Over 10 million people voted in this year’s competition with the rankings trending heavily across social media in India and Pakistan.

Delighted Priyanka, who lives in Mumbai and won the Critics Award for Best Actress for 7 Khoon Maaf in 2011, said: "Someone once told me, sexy is what sexy does and you do it best when you are yourself.

"I don't know what I did to deserve this but I'll happily accept this -le.

"I am very flattered to have be named 'Eastern Eye's' -iest Woman once again.

"The fact that this is decided from a public poll across the world makes this even more special to me.

"Lots of love to everyone who voted and here's to always being yourself."
