Starting off with the roaster of the most searched topics in India, the Salman Khan starrer Sultan ranks as the fourth most searched term, followed by the Rajinikanth starrer Kabali at number five. Apart from these two films, making it to the list of the most searched terms was the Shahid Kapoor- Alia Bhatt starrer film Udta Punjab that claimed the ninth slot as Google’s most searched terms in India.
Looking at the most searched people on Google, the American President elect Donald Trump, topped the chart as the most searched person in India.

Well it comes as no surprise that the list of most searched movies on Google is topped by the Salman Khan starrer Sultan that was one of the most talked about releases. Following this were other Bollywood releases like Kabali, Udta Punjab, Airlift, Ae Dil Hai Mushkil and Sanam Re. A surprise package film that not just worked wonders at the box-office but also catapulted regional cinema to the forefront is the Marathi film Sairat that claims the seventh spot over other releases like Rustom, Conjuring 2 and Housefull 3.
2016 witnessed quite a few new faces making their debut in Bollywood. However, from the fresh crop it is M. S. Dhoni – The Untold Story actress Disha Patani who tops the list as the most searched female celebrity, followed by Urvasi Rautela, and another debutante Pooja Hegde who debuted in the Hrithik Roshan starrer Mohenjo Daro. Another new face making it to the most searched female list is Saiyami Kher who made her Bollywood debut with the Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra directed film Mirzya.
