Mahira Khan bagged the 5th spot on Eastern Eye’s list of the Sexiest Asian Women, leaving behind the likes of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Anushka Sharma.
This rounds off a remarkable year for the Bol actor, which started with starring opposite Bollywood’s biggest star Shahrukh Khan and ended with a powerful performance in Pakistani film Verna.
Being ranked fifth and becoming the highest placed Pakistani took the down to earth star totally by surprise. “Honestly, this time I think I’m just going to take the tag and run with it! It feels great, third time in a row. Being sexy or beautiful for me is really just being comfortable in your own skin,” said Mahira.
Now, the starlet has shared a video on her Instagram account to show ‘exactly how sexy she is,’ and her sense of humour has got us hooked!
The Raees beauty shared a picture and a video with a caption, “Sexy! Pshhh! Have a video to prove i t- watch till the end please 🐧. PS: Thank you so much #Easterneye , @asjadnazir and all of you who vote for me every year! Love, love, love.”
In regards to Mahira’s name making it to the list, Asjad stated, “Mahira Khan has become a powerful symbol of girl power in Pakistan, both for youngsters who have big dreams and for working mothers. She has also spoken up about important social causes including the empowerment of women in Pakistan and been a great ambassador for her country around the world. She has combined all that with how great she always looks. Mahira has shown both inner and outer beauty.”
The complete list of 50 Sexiest Asian Women 2017 has been published in this week’s issue of Eastern Eye. A men’s list is set to be released on December 15.
