Hit queen: Bollywood actress Katrina Kaif will next be seen in the films Singh Is Kinng, Main Yuvraaj and Hello.

Katrina Kaif has arrived. Not only has she scored five consecutive hits at the box office, she has also scored a huge hit in the cyber world.

She has become the most searched female celebrity on the internet in terms of picture downloads, stripping former Miss World Aishwarya Rai Bachchan of that title by a huge margin.

And that’s not all. According to a recent study commissioned by a global provider of mobile content, Katrina has also been declared the most popular face on mobile screens.

Deepika Padukone, Priyanka Chopra, Lara Dutta and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan are the others who feature in the top five.

So what makes Katrina queen of cyber world? The opinions are many and varied.

Photographer Atul Kasbekar, who takes credit for ‘discovering’ Katrina, feels it’s her looks.

Ad guru Prahlad Kakkar concurs. “She is new, young and has delivered not very big but average hits, and that’s made her popular.” And he has more to add. “Though she is neither a good actress nor a good dancer, she is attractive and watchable. She looks clean and healthy,” he says.

VJ Cyrus Sahukar thinks it’s her personality. “Kat is taller than Aishwarya, which adds to her towering personality,” he says tongue-in-cheek.

Ace lensman Dabboo Ratnani feels the lady is not only photogenic but has had her share of good luck, too. “She’s picked the right films and that’s one of the prime reasons behind this survey,” he says.
