Things are getting better and better for Salman Khan! After the stupendous response he has received for his latest blockbuster “Sultan” the actor has hit a new high! The latest addition to his repertoire is that Salman has been named the most searched Bollywood actor over the past decade. Leading the female brigade is our very own ‘Baby Doll’ Sunny Leone.
The news was announced in a press release by Google on Friday. What has added insult to injury is that after the dismal fate of his recent movie ‘Fan’ Shahrukh Khan grabbed the second place. Others actors in the top 10 ranking include Akshay Kumar, Rajinikanth, Amitabh Bachchan, Hrithik Roshan, Shahid Kapoor, Ranbir Kapoor, Aamir Khan and Emraan Hashmi.
The female list was also a trifle surprising! Given that she has gained international fame with her latest TV series ‘Quantico’ and her upcoming Hollywood movie ‘Baywatch’ is also creating quite a buzz, the general perception was that Priyanka Chopra would top the list. Tut Tut!! Big Disappointment for Piggy Chops! In fact, even Katrina was unable to beat Sunny, which goes to prove there’s no denying Ms. Leone’s popularity with Indian masses.
Thanking all her fans Sunny tweeted, “Thanks google,India,& most of all my fans for making me the most searched person and most search Bollywood actress! Best news!!’’
Coming to the most searched Bollywood movie in the last decade….it was Aamir Khan’s ‘PK’. Rekha clinched the position of the most searched classic actress in the online space over the past 10 years, while Big B is the most searched classic actor.
Filmmaker Prabhu Deva was the most searched Bollywood director beating fellow directors like Karan Johar, Farhan Akhtar, Ram Gopal Varma, Farah Khan and others. In terms of most searched singer Honey Singh topped the list while Atif Aslam and Arijit Singh came in second and third place.
Social media went crazy after the list was released by Google. Many are now speculating that Sunny Leone is the new contender for the queen of Bollywood. However, when it comes to Salman, there is really nobody to match him in terms of popularity, which is why he is the ‘Sultan’ of Bollywood.
