Google India’s most searched personalities of the year 2018 list is out and with names like Anup Jalota and Priya Prakash Varrier featuring in it, we must say we are a bit surprised. The drop down also features famous personalities like Salman Khan, Meghan Markle, Priyanka Chopra and new faces like Sara Ali Khan, Anand Ahuja and Nick Jonas. We list you down the complete list of people sequentially who topped the list and the reasons behind it.
Priya Prakash Varrier
Priya Prakash Varrier became an internet sensation when a video clip from the song Manikya Malaraya Poovi of her Malyalam film Oru Adaar went viral in the month of February. In the clip Priya who plays a school student winks at a fellow student. The video which broke the internet at the time of its release has 83 million views on YouTube as of now.
We all know that the only reason Nick who is a known singer in America made to the second spot in this list was because of his marriage with Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra. From social media PDA to the surprise engagement and finally their marriage, the Indian audience went ahead and Googled to see PC’s Mr. Right.
Known as Haryana’s Sunny Leone, Sapna Choudhary who was just famous in Haryana for her sexy and raunchy dance moves became a household name after her appearance as a contestant in Bigg Boss 11. Although Sapna didn’t win the show, she for sure won a lot of hearts.
Priyanka Chopra coming in the list after her husband Nick and Haryana sensation Sapna Choudhary is a bit surprising for us. Nevertheless, Priyanka’s marriage with Nick, her appearances in prestigious events like Met Gala, 50th anniversary of Ralph Lauren, Forbes Women’s Summit and Meghan Markle’s wedding grabbed her fourth spot in the list.
Anand Ahuja again like Nick Jonas appeared in the list only because of his marriage to Bollywood actress Sonam Kapoor this year. Their PDA moments are considered the cutest on social media. The duo was also recently invited to the Giorgio Armani fashion show in Milan.
Sara Ali Khan
Saif Ali Khan and Amrita Singh’s daughter, Sara Ali Khan made her Bollywood debut this year with the film Kedarnath. She will also be seen in Ranveer Singh starrer Simmba. Apart from her films and the fact that she is Saif’s daughter, Sara was also in news for her bindaas attitude.
Well Bhai doesn’t need any specific reason to be in the news. Having such a huge fan base, Salman is constantly a headlines favourite. The actor was also named as the richest Indian celebrity by Forbes.
We all know the reason Meghan Markle is on the list. Her royal wedding to Prince Harry and later announcement of her pregnancy, made Meghan the most searched personality on Google.
Anup Jalota grabbed the limelight for his alleged affair with Jasleen Matharu who is apparently 37 years younger to him. The duo who came on the reality show of Bigg Boss season 12 as a couple, later refuted the relationship and stated they faked the relationship because the makers of the show told them to do so.
2018 has been an extremely difficult year for Boney Kapoor. He lost his wife veteran actress Sridevi but the one good thing which happened was the union of his four children Arjun, Anshula, Janhvi and Khushi.
