Bollywood actor Katrina Kaif has emerged as the most searched celebrity on mobile phones, beating the likes of Shah Rukh Khan, beau Salman Khan and even Hollywood icons Angelina Jolie and Monica Bellucci.
In a research conducted on more than 1,20,000 users by mBit Infotech, a Value Added Service (VAS) provider, Katrina bags the top slot among celeb icons, followed by Angelina Jolie, Kareena Kapoor, Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan, Bipasha Basu, Aishwarya Rai, Monica Bellucci and Aamir Khan.
“It is amazing to see that Katrina Kaif is ruling the charts with a major pie, presumably implying that Katrina’s popularity is mounting for both national and international audiences,” said Raghavendra Agarwala, CEO of mBit Infotech.
The research is based on the searches performed in the first quarter of 2010 (Jan to April) and it also found out that “sex” is still the most popular searched keyword, out of 6730 unique keywords, which accounts for 30% of the total searches performed. Music is the second most searched keyword, accounting for 19% of the total searches. International music icons like Akon, Linkin Park, Eminem, Lady Gaga, Madonna, Rihanna and Michael Jackson top the list in the music category.
