Deepika Padukone Tops #MaximHot100 List As Hottest Woman Of 2017

Showbiz Jun 02, 2017

The annual #MaximHot100 list has 100 of the sexiest women in entertainment, fashion, and sports from around the globe; and they’ve always been spot on.

Bollywood’s own Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra also made it to Maxim’s list of the top 100 hot women, but Padukone got a one-up on PeeCee by becoming the Hottest Woman Of The Year.

Padukone left behind big names like Hailey Baldwin, Emma Watson, Emma Stone, Dakota Johnson, Kendall Jenner and more.

Maxim ran a poll survey to decide which woman would top the list and after over a million votes later, the Bajirao Mastani star took home the crown for being number one.

After Maxim India shared the news,  Padukone shared a picture from her latest photoshoot for the magazine. The instagram post garnered over 70 000 likes within half an hour.

Padukone made her international big screen debut earlier this year in xXx: The Return of  Xander Cage alongside Vin Diesel, and she also ranks number 10 on Forbes’ 2016 list of the world’s highest paid actresses.

Apart from making #MaximHot100, the Bollywood star dropped jaws at the Met Gala 2017 and made quite the stunning appearance at the recent Cannes International Film Festival.

Looking good takes a lot of work, and fitness has always been an utmost concern for Padukone.

Putting in time at the gym means enlisting the help of “intuitive fitness angel” and Bollywood Trainer Farhan Dhalla, who trained Padukone for xXx: Return Of Xander Cage while she was in Toronto.

“I’ve worked with world-class athletes, Canadian Olympians and gold medalists from many different sports on an international level,” Dhalla said in an interview. “Deepika has a similar focus to that of these athletes. Because of her discipline, it was quite easy to keep her on the program. To be honest, it never felt like work at all. I really felt like I was having a lot of fun.”

While maintaining global appearances, Padukone is currently working on Sanjay Leela Bhansali‘s much-awaited period drama film, Padmavati.

The magnum opus stars Padukone’s right-hand man Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor in the lead.

It is scheduled to release on November 17, 2017.
