Priyanka Chopra has come up as the "Sexiest Asian Woman" for the third time. London-based weekly newspaper Eastern Eye conducted its 2015 poll for the "50 Sexiest Asian Women" and Priyanka topped the chart this time too.

The annual poll is conducted on the basis of social media votes and Priyanka was voted as the "Sexiest Asian Woman", followed by TV actresses Sanaya Irani in second place and Drashti Dhami claiming the third spot.

"Now that's a title I am happy to hold on to. I am bringing sexy back. A big thank you to everyone who has voted for me. Thank you also to Eastern Eye for making me feel sexy; well at least for another year. A piece of advice to the ladies- it's all in the mind. Remember, sexy is as sexy does," PTI quoted Priyanka as saying.

The "Bajirao Mastani" actress has become globally popular after the success of her American TV show "Quantico" and a major portion of non-Asian people voted for her.

"Priyanka Chopra is doing India proud on the global stage and winning loads of admirers. This was illustrated by the largest-ever number of votes by non-Asians that she received from all over the world. She is clearly building bridges internationally through her art and will continue to do so in the coming years. And by excelling in TV, film and music, the multi-talented actress has shown just how far hard work can take you," the report quoted Eastern Eye entertainment editor, Asjad Nazir as saying.

While Priyanka, Sanaya Irani and Drashti Dhami claimed the first three slots respectively, Deepika Padukone came fourth in the list and Katrina Kaif is in the fifth position. Other top 10 "Sexiest Asian Women" are Nia Sharma, Kareen Kapoor Khan, Gauahar Khan, Sonam Kapoor and Mahira Khan respectively.
