LONDON: Bollywood star Alia Bhatt has been voted as the Sexiest Asian Female for the year 2019, with fellow actor Deepika Padukone being crowned sexiest for the decade in an online poll released in London on Wednesday.

Topping the annual list, released by UK-based weekly 'Eastern Eye', rounds off a dream year for Alia Bhatt, which included acting awards as well as starring in India's official 2020 Oscar entry 'Gully Boy'.

"I've always believed that true beauty goes beyond what is seen and that is what really counts," said Bhatt, who said she was “flattered” by the votes.

"We'll grow older, our appearances will change, but a good heart will always keep you beautiful and that is really what we should focus on,” said the 26-year-old actress.

The Sexiest Asian Female list is based on online votes, media coverage, impact and heat generated across various social media platforms.

'Eastern Eye' entertainment editor and founder of the list, Asjad Nazir, said: “There is no one on a bigger role than unstoppable star Alia Bhatt and nothing will prevent her from dominating the next decade of commercial Hindi cinema as the queen of Bollywood.

“More than a movie star she is a powerful symbol of girl power, who is a representation of the empowered modern day woman.”

Padukone, the topper of the 2018 list, comes in at second place for 2019 but holds on to her crown for the decade.

The highest-placed TV star Hina Khan is ranked third in the 2019 list. Fourth-placed Mahira Khan holds on to her title of the sexiest Pakistani woman on the planet for a fifth year in a row and is also named sexiest Pakistani of the decade.

“I am so grateful to all my fans who continue to vote for me every year. This one is for a decade of love, ups and downs, support and magic. I have never considered myself sexy, but I believe when you do you - that's sexy. And I hope I can continue to do just that,” she said.

The top 10 for 2019 include Surbhi Chandna (5), Katrina Kaif (6), Shivangi Joshi (7), Nia Sharma (8), Mehwish Hayat (9) and Priyanka Chopra (10).

The youngest in the list is 21-year-old Bollywood newcomer Ananya Panday (36) and the oldest is 46-year-old Aishwarya Rai Bachchan (39). The highest placed newcomer is YouTube superstar turned TV host Lilly Singh (14).
