Humaima, Sonam, Drashti Dhami, Meet the SEXIEST Asian Women of 2014

Last updated on: December 04, 2014 18:17 IST

It's a curious mix of TV actresses, Pakistani hotties and Bollywood A-listers!

Results of the Sexiest Asian Woman in the World annual poll, conducted by UK-based weekly newspaper Eastern Eye, is out.

Think you can guess who received top billing in this list? 

Find out!

20. Humaima Mallick

 

Starlet Humaima Mallick, who made her Bollywood debut opposite Emraan Hashmi in Raja Natwarlal, was the highest placed Pakistani on the list at number 20.



17. Shraddha Kapoor

 

Thanks to her clever choice of movie projects (Aashiqui 2, Ek Villain), actress Shraddha Kapoor is steadily rising up the popularity charts. She figures at number 17 in this list.

 


16. Surbhi Jyoti

 

Protagonist of the popular television show Qubool Hai, Surbhi Jyoti figures on this list at number 16.



13. Shakti Mohan

 

Dancing sensation Shakti Mohan, 29, has found her pride of place at number 13 on this list of Asia's sexiest women in the world. 



12. Asha Negi

 

Yet another TV actress, Asha Negi, who won the sixth season of Nach Baliye with her actor beau Ritwik Dhanjani, is at number 12.



10. Preetika Rao

 

Amrita Rao's lil sister Preetika is doing quite well for herself! The Beintehaa actress has landed herself a spot at number 10.

 

9. Sonam Kapoor

 

Sonam Kapoor, who is gearing up for two big releases next year -- Dolly Ki Doli and Prem Ratan Dhan Paayo -- is at number nine.

 

8. Kareena Kapoor

 

The gorgeous Kareena Kapoor, who was recently seen in a cameo in her actor husband Saif Ali Khan's Happy Ending, has been placed at number eight.



7. Nia Sharma

 

Nia Sharma, 23, who rose to fame with her TV show Ek Hazaaron Mein Meri Behna Hai, is at number seven. 

 

6. Deepika Padukone

 

Star of hit films like Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram Leela, Chennai Express and the recent Happy New Year, Deepika Padukone was placed at number six. 



5. Gauahar Khan

 

Former Bigg Boss winner Gauahar Khan, who has been in the news thanks to a shocking incident, rounds off the top five.



4. Katrina Kaif

 

Last year's topper Katrina Kaif has slunk to the number four spot. Her largely conspicuous absence from the big screen (Bang Bang aside) may have caused this, perhaps? 



3. Sanaya Irani

 

Miley Jab Hum Tum star Sanaya Irani has a sizeable fan base too. She finished third in this popularity race.



2. Drashti Dhami

 

Television actress Drashti Dhami, who starred in Madhubala and also won the sixth season of celebrity dance reality show Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa, came second.



1. Priyanka Chopra

 

It's Mary Kom star Priyanka Chopra who has topped the list this year, dethroning Katrina Kaif.

"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 title," Priyanka said of her latest glory.
