Pakistan has exceptional talent and we are so glad that our actors and actresses are being recognized the world over. And if there is one celebrity from Pakistan who is loved the most is Mahira Khan who in the years that she has been in the industry has managed to earn love and respect from everyone around as she easily manages to impress all with her choice of plays or even movies example being Verna. So with the Sexiest Asian Women List for this year finally out , we are so glad to see the gorgeous star back on it once again on number 5 as well as two other beauties from the industry namely Armeena Khan and Momina Mustehsan
Talking about Mahira first, this year when her movie Raees which had her paired opposite Shahrukh Khan released, she became a instant rage in India and the world over which resulted in her even attending the Beirut International Film Festival as well as getting to be the first Pakistani to become the ambassador for L'Oréal Paris. And now the lady has been featured in the 2017 edition of the popular '50 Sexiest Asian Women' poll by London-based weekly newspaper Eastern Eye on number 5.
Quite exciting we know as according to Zee News, the number one spot went to Priyanka Chopra while others who followed were Nia Sharma on the second, Deepika Padukone at third, Alia Bhatt came in fourth and Mahira Khan at 5th position completing the top 5.
The Sexiest Asian Woman in the world list in an annual UK poll which is published by a British-based newspaper and last year Mahira Khan had come in at number 9.But this year she was included by Eastern Eye’s editor Asjad Nazir, who founded the list and puts it together annually, by saying ,
“Mahira Khan has become a powerful symbol of girl power in Pakistan, both for youngsters who have big dreams and for working mothers. She has also spoken up about important social causes including the empowerment of women in Pakistan and has been a great ambassador for her country around the world. She has combined all that with how great she always looks. Mahira has shown both inner and outer beauty.”
And here is what Mahira had to share upon discovering about her inclusion in the list, "Honestly, this time I think I’m just going to take the tag and run with it! It feels great, third time in a row. Being sexy or beautiful for me is really just being comfortable in your own skin.”
But it seems this year it is not only Mahira Khan who has made it to the list again. Armeena Khan, our very own beauty is also back on. Last year Armeena ranked in at 26 but this year she has come in at number 22 owing to her growing contribution in television and film industry in Pakistan and abroad.
Coming in at number 37, is the much loved musician Momina Mustehsan who was chosen by the editor for her strides in a male-dominated music industry in Pakistan and for making a massive impact along with opening a debate about important social causes.
So with the three Pakistani stars included in the 50 Sexiest Asian Women's List for this year, we couldn't be more proud of them and here is hoping for the trio to achieve greater milestones in the future too.
