Lata Mangeshkar and “Kabir Singh” among top Google India searches in 2019


Legendary singer Lata Mangeshkar and the blockbuster film “Kabir Singh” are two of the most googled terms in India in 2019.

Lata Mangeshkar was actually ranked 2nd on the list of ‘Personalities’, behind IAF pilot Abhinandan Varthman, who was captured by the Pakistani forces in February this year.

Her presence on the list is understandable – the iconic singer has not been well of late and all her fans across the globe were immensely worried about her health and keeping tabs on her progress.

The film “Kabir Singh” meanwhile was a surprise list topper, coming in ahead of Marvel’s “Avengers: Endgame” and Joaquin Phoenix’s super hit “Joker” in the ‘Movies’ category.

“Kabir Singh” is the Hindi remake of the Telugu blockbuster “Arjun Reddy” and is the second Bollywood’s biggest earner of this year.

It stars Shahid Kapoor.

The search engine classified data under several categories: ‘Overall’, ‘Personalities’,  ‘Movies’, ‘Songs’ and ‘What is…’

The Cricket World Cup topped the ‘Overall’ category with India’s Lok Sabha Elections coming in second.
