Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra has been named the world's sexiest Asian woman for the fifth time, dethroning Deepika Padukone, who topped the list past year, in the United Kingdom based newspaper Eastern Eye. She also took to Instagram to give due credits to her fans (and genes) and said: Apart from being an A-list star, the "Sexiest Asian Woman" and making continuous waves in Hollywood, Priyanka Chopra is also one of the hottest Indian stars on social media, and has recently crossed 20 million followers on Instagram.
Priyanka is very happy with the news, and has thanked everyone "I can not actually take credit for this at all".

Nia took to Twitter to express her happiness regarding the same and said that PeeCee will always be No 1.
