Pakistani starlets Mahira Khan and Sanam Saeed have bagged 4th and 19th place respectively in Eastern Eye’s Sexiest Asian Woman 2018 list, reported Hindustan Times.
“I am grateful to be part of this list once again. My fans are my strength so thank you to them. I think personally sexy is what sexy does and I hope to continue to work hard at what I do with as much as passion as I have been from the start,” the Raees actor, who bagged fifth position last year, commented.
Saeed was selected for “pushing the creative boundaries in Pakistan and regularly speaking about a wide array of important social issues including women’s empowerment”.
The list by the UK-based publication was topped by Bollywood divaDeepika Padukone, who reclaimed her position this year from former Miss World Priyanka Chopra.
“Apart from being the undisputed queen of Bollywood and a strikingly beautiful star, what really makes Deepika Padukone special is how big her heart is and how grounded she has remained throughout her remarkable rise,” said Asjad Nazir, the newspaper’s Entertainment Editor.
Chopra bagged the second spot. The third spot was secured by Indian TV star Nia Sharma. Fifth spot was awarded to Shivangi Joshi.
The rest of the top 10 completing the 2018 list includes Alia Bhatt (6), Sonam Kapoor (7), Hina Khan (8), Katrina Kaif (9) and Niti Taylor (10).
