Katrina Kaif, Priyanka Chopra and Sunny Leone have become women celebrities which are most widely searched online globally.
According to a study, Priyanka Chopra, Sunny Leone, and Katrina Kaif have searched on average 39 lakh, 31 lakh, and 19 lakh times respectively between January and April 2020.
In the study, it was found that Salman Khan, Virat Kohli, and Hrithik Roshan were the three most-searched male Indian celebrities. These male celebrities were searched on average 21 lakh, 20 lakh, and 13 lakh times.
The report says that the fact that “male celebrities are far more popular and marketable than female celebrities” isn’t true.
Also, women celebrities, in descending order, were Deepika Padukone, Alia Bhatt, Disha Patani, Sara Ali Khan, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Shraddha Kapoor, and Rashmika Mandanna.
Other male celebrities in the top ten were Rohit Sharma, Allu Arjun, Shah Rukh Khan, Tiger Shroff, Vijay Deverakonda, MS Dhoni, and Mahesh Babu.
“Indian women have an edge over men. Our research shows that the most searched for Indian celebrity aren’t a man but a woman, namely Priyanka Chopra. Over the three months, the study was conducted, she was sought by almost 20 lakh more people than Salman Khan — the most searched for a male celebrity in India,” said Fernando Angulo, Head of Communications, SEMrush.
