Actress Katrina Kaif is the most googled for Bollywood star in India, according to Google’s own India Zeitgeist research arm, followed closely by social networking site Orkut. “Different people find different things to do on the Web, so these lists are a good representation of the unique ways in which users mine the Internet,” says Vinay Goel of Google India. In terms of Bollywood actors, Katrina just edged out Aishwarya Rai and Salman Khan during the period surveyed.
On the movie front, the survey which covers roughly the first half of this year, saw Jodhaa Akbar in first place, followed by Dasavatharam and Singh is Kinng. Amongst other high scorers were tennis star Sania Mirza, Goa and India Railways.
Katrina says that it is the director that has most influence on her decision to make a movie and this is what influenced her to make Yuvvraaj. “I knew that I was not the protagonist in Yuvvraaj, but I wanted to be a part of it since an established director like Subhash Ghai was making it,” she explains. Certainly, her appearance in Yuvvraaj has attracted many fans. “Katrina looks like a dream in Yuvvraaj. She has never looked so gorgeous before,” said a source.
Kabir Khan’s movie New York, under the Yash Raj umbrella, will be Katrina’s first movie of 2009 and will also feature Irrfan Khan, Neil Nitin Mukesh and John Abraham. The first trailer for the movie will be seen during SRK’s release of Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi.
