Mirror, mirror on the wall, who’s the sexiest Asian women of them all? This is the question that UK’s Eastern Eye asked in a survey. And not surprisingly, Bollywood actress Katrina Kaif has topped the list for the third time.
Bollywood bombshell and now ‘item’ girl Katrina Kaif beat off competition from contemporaries Priyanka Chopra and Bipasha Basu to be named the Sexiest Woman in the World for the third year in a row.
The actress whose moves in the hit dance number ‘Sheila Ki Jawani’ earned her plenty of fans, topped London-based newspaper Eastern Eye’s list of the hottest women in the world.
The star of one of the year’s biggest Bollywood blockbuster 'Raajneeti' and hotly anticipated Christmas release 'Tees Maar Khan' is excited about the hat-trick.
"I’m very happy that I have made it to the top of Eastern Eye’s list again. England is, of course, a very special place to me and I think it’s very sweet to be voted the sexiest by them. I just want to thank everyone for the support,” said the 26-year-old actress.
The actress who split from boyfriend Salman Khan this year, came out on top of the survey conducted by the newspaper, Britain’s only national English language weekly serving the whole Asian community in the UK.
The list was calculated on the basis of the most photographed women in the world and the most in-demand with film producers and fans. “Although Bollywood heroines dominated the top 10, the list for 2010 included stunning beauty pageant winners, top actresses from around the world, pop stars and TV personalities. That is why Katrina should be deservedly proud of her amazing win,” Eastern Eye showbiz editor Asjad Nazir said.
Katrina Kaif was born in Hong Kong to a Kashmiri father and British mother. She spent her childhood in Hawaii and later moved to England. She first came to the notice of filmmaker Kaizad Gustad while she was modelling for a jewellery campaign in London and that led to her break in Bollywood in the film Boom.
Top Asian beauties include Katrina Kaif, Priyanka Chopra, Bipasha Basu, Frieda Pinto and Lara Dutta.
