Deepika Padukone voted sexiest woman alive for second time

Deepika Padukone?has retained the top spot after being voted as the sexiest woman alive for the second time. The dimpled diva of Bollywood, who has had a great year so far, had won the title last year too in an annual youth survey conducted by a leading publication.

This year, she beat her contemporaries with 33% vote, a DNA report suggests.

Deepika, who made her Bollywood debut opposite superstar Shah Rukh Khan, was launched by Farah Khan in Om Shanti Om in 2007. But not many know that the model-turned-actress?s first film was Aishwarya in Kannada language.

The Piku star, who is now a brand to reckon with, is a popular name in Hollywood too. She worked really hard on her acting skills to emerge as one of the most sought after actresses in India today. She made her Hollywood debut early this year with Vin Diesel?s xXx: Return of Xander Cage.

At present, she is gearing up for the release of her next ? Padmavati ? a film directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali. She essays the role of Rani Padmini, a Rajput Queen in the magnum opus which also stars her rumoured beau Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor.

Deepika is famous not just for her performances on screen but also for her social endeavours. She is perhaps one of the few celebrities who have admitted to having been a victim of depression in the past.

She has come up with foundation named Live Love Laugh to help those fighting depression, anxiety and stress.

Here?s congratulating the diva for winning the title for the second consecutive time.
