WEB DESK: Bollywood actress Sunny Leone turns out to be the most Googled Indian in 2015 while actor Salman Khan was at second place, NDTV reported.
Sunny, 34, was the most Googled Indian in 2014 and a number of reasons made the former adult film star search-worthy this year as well.
She was named in an obscenity case filed by a Mumbai housewife; a Left leader linked a condom ad featuring her to increase in rapes; she appeared in the films Ek Paheli Leela and Kuch Kuch Locha Hai; her next film Mastizaade had trouble getting past the Censor Board; and a music video she featured in titled Super Girl From China was slammed for being sexist.
Salman, who turns 50 this year, was at second place on the list of 10 most Googled Indians, up one place from last year. Sunny and Salman also top the lists for most searched B-Town actors.
Indian Prime Minister, Narendra Modi slipped to tenth on the list from second most searched last year.
Also returning this year are actors Katrina Kaif, Deepika Padukone, Shah Rukh Khan and Alia Bhatt at numbers four, five, six and nine. SRK is up from the eighth spot on 2014’s list and Alia is down from number six.
The remaining three berths on this year’s list of 10 are occupied by former President Abdul Kalam, who died in July, singer Yo Yo Honey Singh and actress Kajal Aggarwal.
Sunny, Katrina, Deepika and Alia fill the first four spots on the list of 10 most Googled Bollywood actresses of 2015 and are followed by Radhika Apte, Anushka Sharma, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Kareena Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra and Poonam Pandey.
On the list of most searched Bollywood actors, Salman and SRK precede Akshay Kumar, Shahid Kapoor, Hrithik Roshan, Ranbir Kapoor, Aamir Khan, Varun Dhawan, Amitabh Bachchan and Ajay Devgn.
