B-town bombshell Katrina Kaif has been named the world’s sexiest Asian woman for the fourth consecutive year by a weekly publication. The actor defeated both Priyanka Chopra (by a whisker) and box office’s reining diva Deepika Padukone, according to the Hindustan Times.

Kaif topped the ‘50 Sexiest Asian Women List 2013’ in the tenth edition of the UK-based publication Eastern Eye. Chopra scored the second position, while Indian television star Drashti Dhami and Padukone came third and fourth respectively. Pleased to know about her record-making win, Katrina said, “I didn’t know it was a record! That’s a nice surprise and a lot of fun to hear.” She further said, “Obviously if everyone were to see me when I wake up in the morning or in my track pants and then vote for me, maybe I would believe it a little more myself. But of course, it’s very flattering.”

Comparing herself with the Lebanese women at the launch of Katrina’s Lucky 6 Nakshatra jewellery in Dubai, Kaif said, “There were such stylish Lebanese women everywhere and I felt so insecure that I got into my cab and went back to the hotel. They were drop dead gorgeous,” reported Oneindia.

Although Kaif has not made any notable appearance in Bollywood films this year, her win certainly proves that the ‘out of sight, out of mind’ notion is an erroneous one. The list was published just a few weeks before Katrina will make a grand comeback with the much-awaited Bollywood release Dhoom 3.

The magazine’s showbiz editor, Asjad Nazir, who puts the list together every year, said that the competition was close. India’s female television actors dominated the list and Dhami became the first Indian small-screen star to be part of the list’s top three. Bollywood newcomer Shraddha Kapoor ranked 12, while Pakistani actor Humaima Malick took the 15th spot. Other notable stars that made it to the list include Sonam Kapoor (5), Mehreen Syed (22) and Madhuri Dixit (23).

We congratulate the bevy of beauties!

    Based on voted not religion. Of course any playing field that is not rigged in your favor would appear biased to you. We recall long time back another gentleman who also did not person single person single vote and wanted extra votes given to Muslim opinion. Tradition continues.
