The singer and actress, 33, came out on top following millions of votes pouring in from across the globe on social media for the 2015 edition of the popular '50 Sexiest Asian Women' poll conducted by London-based weekly newspaper 'Eastern Eye'.
"Now that's a title I'm happy to hold on to. I'm bringing sexy back! A big thank you to everyone who's 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," said Chopra.
This is the third time in the past four years that Chopra, who has been making waves with her role as an FBI recruit in American television thriller 'Quantico', topped the list. The win rounds off a dream year for the former Miss World which includes winning all-round praise for her 2014 film 'Mary Kom' and 2015 box-office hit 'Dil Dhadakne Do'.

The mass interest in the list, now in its 12th year, was such that it was trending on Twitter across India and Pakistan during the voting process.
Popular television actress Sanaya Irani rose one place from last year to come second and fellow small screen star Drashti Dhami took third spot.
