New Delhi: Bollywood diva Deepika Padukone has been voted as the most desirable woman of 2012.
The bold actress, who has come a long way since her debut Om Shanti Om, has been voted as the winner based on votes received online during a poll conducted by a skinwear company.

Deepika believes that her work makes her so desirable. In an interview to an English daily, the actress said, “Though I don’t have filmy background, but I have earned lots of love and respect.”

Among her co-stars, the actress finds Bollywood’s Badshah Shah Rukh Khan as the most desirable man. “When I was working with Shah Rukh in my debut movie, I got to learn a lot of things from him.  Now again I am working with him in Chennai Express. He is extremely generous and I can call him a friend,” Deepika said candidly.

The actress, who has been rumored having an affair with her ‘Ram Leela’ co-star Ranveer Singh, says they both are good friends. “Ranveer is a friend. He is nice and extremely honest,” said the ‘Cocktail’ actress.

Deepika was voted as the most desirable woman of 2012 by her fans. In the same poll Katrina ranked second and Kareena Kapoor grabbed third position.
