Priyanka Chopra, Deepika Padukone and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan have recently been honoured by being included in the ranks of the world’s most admired women in 2018.
According to a list based on an annual survey conducted by YouGov, Bachchan placed 11th, while Chopra and Padukone ranked 12th and 13th, respectively. Over 37,000 people from 25 countries were interviewed for the study. The final results were based on “the combination of responses to two questions – whether a respondent admires the figure at all and then whether they are the figure the respondent admires the most. Each nation’s results in the global compilation are also weighted to represent the country’s population size. “
India’s most admired women list moved Padukone up to No. 4, Bachchan to No. 7 and Chopra to No. 8. Other Bollywood names on the list are Lata Mangeshkar, Sushmita Sen and Katrina Kaif. The list of world’s most admired men includes Narendra Modi at 8th place and Amitabh Bachchan at 9th.
