Internet searches is one place where you have strange partners! According to a Google report for India, Gandhi and Aishwarya Rai are the most searched names. Hmmm. That is quite an accomplishment for the bare chested old man roaming around in a cotton cloth talking of non-violence and threatening fast-unto-deaths faster than one could draw a gun!
On the other hand, Deepika Padukone… who is probably the most authentic looking beauty and actress since Madhubala – in my book – joins the first 10 rankings amongst the searched actresses.
Social networking website Orkut is the most sought after site in India, Sania Mirza tops among sport stars, Mahatma Gandhi is the most searched political leader and Aishwarya Rai the most sought after actor, says an annual Google Zeitgeist report for India in the most popular queries of 2007.
The Google Zeitgeist, which means spirit of the times, is calculated by looking at the aggregation of the most popular and fast-rising search queries submitted to Google by Indian users.
The report also shows that among male actors, Salman Khan is the favourite, but is on number two position after Aishwarya. Shah Rukh Khan, who delivered the two biggest hits of the year – Chak De! India and Om Shanti Om – is on fifth position.
Actresses dominate the list of Bollywood celebrities and newcomer Deepika Padukone has earned a spot in the top 10.
