As we near closer to declaring this year’s Maxim Hot 100 winner, let’s look back at the previous beauties who have topped the list.
Deepika Padukone (2017, 2008)
Our very first Hot 100 winner is hell-bent on making sure that the entire world is aware of her – and she’s looking good doing it. Her Hollywood debut last year saw her star alongside Vin Diesel in the film xXx: Return of Xander Cage and her performance in it was well-received.
When she made her return to India, the run-up to the release of her film Padmaavat was one that was fuelled not only by anticipation, but also by intense controversies. It ended up being one of the highest grossing Indian films of all time and Deepika’s performance was especially lauded.
Priyanka Chopra (2016, 2013, 2011)
Priyanka’s topped the list thrice and it’s no surprise why! She’s headlined her own television show (Quantico) in the US and is all set to return to Bollywood (after an excruciatingly long time) with her film Bharat.
Other than headlining shows and movies, she’s also been in the headlines with her heavenly Met Gala appearance and presence at the Royal Wedding this year.
Katrina Kaif (2014)
Dedicated to her fitness routine, Kaif has been a part of some of the biggest hits in the last few years like Tiger Zinda Hai, Baar Baar Dekho, and Jagga Jasoos.
She topped the list in 2014 and has been a regular on it for years now – understandably.
Kareena Kapoor (2012)
She’s been away from the silver screen for a while, but is back with the movie Veere Di Wedding, which is already a box-office hit.
Sonam Kapoor (2010)
Right after getting married, Sonam made her way to the Cannes Film Festival where she made heads turn and jaws drop with her outfits. She came back in time to promote her film Veere Di Wedding, which she stars in alongside Kareena Kapoor.
Bipasha Basu (2009)
The erstwhile Hot 100 winner tied the knot in 2016 and is now extremely active on Instagram, where she shows her rigorous fitness regimen.
