LONDON (Bernama): Her absence from the big screen for a year has not stopped Bollywood beauty Katrina Kaif (pic) from winning the world's sexiest Asian woman title for the fourth consecutive year, Press Trust of India (PTI) reported.
The actress narrowly defeated Priyanka Chopra, TV star Drashti Dhami and current box office queen Deepika Padukone in the '50 Sexiest Asian Women List 2013'. Chopra came in second, Dhami, third and Padukone, fourth.
A permanent fixture in the top three for the past six years, Kaif beat off competition from the world's most stunning Asian women in the 10th edition of UK based, Eastern Eye newspaper's definitive Sexy List.
The fourth win came just weeks before Katrina hits the big screen again in one of the year's biggest Bollywood releases Dhoom 3: Back In Action.
"I didn't know it was a record! That's a nice surprise and a lot of fun to hear. I like it because Eastern Eye newspaper is the one my sisters read because they live in London," Katrina said.
Other Indian television actresses who made the list included last year's highest new entry Nia Sharma (11), Jennifer Winget (15), Asha Negi (18), Krystle D'Souza (19) and Rubina Dilaik (26).
The highest placed Pakistani was Humaima Malick (15) and the only non-resident Indian in the list was Anger Management star Noureen DeWulf (10).
The oldest women in the list were Bollywood icons Madhuri Dixit (23) and Sridevi (40), aged 46 and 50 respectively.
