Mumbai: Sunny Leone continues to be the most searched celebrity on Google, just ahead of perennial favourites like Salman Khan, Katrina Kaif, and Deepika Padukone. Not just that, while Prime Minister Narendra Modi with all his tweets could manage to be the top trend of Google this year, he too was defeated by Leone when it came to ‘Most Searched Personality’s’ list.
Moral of the story: Baby Doll will always triumph over Swachh Bharat.
Google India today announced its 2014 Year in Search lists, a look at the top trends and searches through the collective eyes of the world on the web. Year in Search offers a unique perspective on the year’s biggest interests, major events, and hot searches that ruled the web in India.
Hitting bull’s eye at the box office, Bollywood thriller Ragini MMS 2 topped the chart this year as the most searched-for movie.
Also leading searches in the Movies category were Salman Khan hits Kick and Jai Ho, followed by the Aamir Khan blockbuster Dhoom 3. Popular tracks including Bang Bang’s title track, Honey Singh’s ‘Blue eyes’, and party song ‘Sunny Sunny’ from the movie Yaariyan dominated the airwaves and emerged as the most searched in the music category.
Google also witnessed an exponential increase in the number of internet searches not only on desktops, but also smartphones, a trend that is reflective of the country’s growing digital emergence as the next billion Indians embrace the power of the web.
