Mahira Khan makes headlines once again as she makes it to a list of this year’s 50 ‘Sexiest Asian Women’ in the world.

According to a poll conducted by UK-based newspaper Eastern EyeMahira ranked 10th, while Bollywood diva Priyanka Chopra topped the list.

Mahira — who will be making her Bollywood debut alongside megastar Shah Rukh Khan in Raees — is a new entrant on the list which has been published annually for almost a decade now.

Here’s what Mahira has to say about working with Fawad, Shah Rukh:

Indian TV actresses Sanaya Irani was ranked second.

While TV actress Drashti Dhami was third.

Much to our surprise, Bollywood beauty Deepika Padukone was ranked number four this year.

Katrina Kaif, who was declared the Sexiest Asian Woman in 2014, was ranked fifth.

Kareena Kapoor Khan and Sonam Kapoor secured seventh and ninth spots, respectively.

Mahira is not the only Pakistani personality on the list. Supermodel Mehreen Syed has consistently been voted among top 50 Sexiest Asian Women since 2009. She bagged the 38th spot this year.

Iman Ali was the first to make it to top 10 in 2007.

Following which Mehwish Hayat was ranked number 9 in 2008 and maintained her position in 2009 as well. Hadiqa Kiyani was placed 30th in 2009. While Humaima Malik was also in the list of 2013 and 2014.

The sexiest woman, Priyanka Chopra was ecstatic after the list was published. “Now that’s a title I’m happy to hold on to. I’m bringing sexy back. A big thank you to those who have voted for me. Also, thank you 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,” she was quoted as saying by NDTV.

“What continues to make this list really special is the strong presence of ‘real women’ who the public can relate to. Most fans look at the all-round qualities of those they are voting for and that is why more women than men vote annually,” said Asjad Nazir, Eastern Eye Entertainment Editor and founder of the list.

The complete list of 2015’s 50 Sexiest Asian Women was published in Eastern Eye on December 11.

    Where have gone so called beauties of Pakistan? Among top 10 list Indian beauties are 6 and Pakistanis are only 2. Indian beauties are not only beautiful but also talented. In true sense they are “SMART”.Recommend

    so Sania Irani is the second most beautiful or as they say sexy in Asia.. Are you serious? Says alot about the level of beauty in India.. Thats the advantage that India has produced too many people to vote for their “not so beautiful” actresses as beautifulRecommend

    This list is strong evidence that India is trying to destabilise Pakistan! I urge Sartaj Aziz & Chaudhary Nisar & Raheel Shareef & Nawaz Shareef & all other foreign ministers of Pakistan to submit this list in the UN as proof of Indian terrorism.Recommend

    on an average Pakistnani girls are beautiful. But Lollywood isn’t that famous, and doesn’t make much movies, and hence less talent and beauty is introduced.Recommend

    @Nil: India s population is 6 to1, hence 2 Pakistanis out of top 10 is still a better ratioRecommend

    @Meghana: stating a fact doesn’t mean that the person is getting jealous :-) secondly paki females are not allowed by the govt to take part in miss world contests coz the female has to expose her body there just to win the award. I hope this fact is enough for indians who ask why Pakis have never won miss world contest. Recommend

    Does anyone realise that they are talking about girls and not objects? Rating women for beauty is the most degrading thing you can do to them, respect them, love them, cherish them, but don’t rate them!Recommend
