Celebrities draw the maximum attention of audiences all around the world. SEMrush recently conducted a global study on the popularity of Indian actors and actresses across the boundaries. The study contains global data from October 2018 to October 2019 and found that Salman Khan and Priyanka Chopra are the topmost internationally searched Indian celebrities. In October 2019, Priyanka Chopra and Salman Khan were searched 2.74 and 1.83 million times respectively. The most searches for Priyanka Chopra were made in December 2018. She was searched 13.6 million times that month. Searches for Salman Khan in a single month never exceeded 2.74 million; he was searched this many times in December 2018.

Excitingly, Priyanka Chopra is leading the race with a monthly search volume of more than 4.2 million, however, Salman Khan has over 2 million monthly searches. The study has two segments bifurcated into Indian actors and actresses. Considering segments individually, the top three most popular actors are Salman Khan, Amrish Puri and Shahrukh Khan. The latter two were searched an average of 1.7 million times respectively.

On the other hand, Priyanka Chopra, Sunny Leone, and Deepika Padukone are the leading ladies on the list. Another fascinating fact revealed in this case study is that Madhubala is the 6th most eminent actress with 1.3 million monthly global searches wherein Leone and Padukone have been searched over 3 million and 1.8 million times respectively.

Katrina Kaif, Alia Bhatt, Imran Khan, and Ranveer Singh are the other prominent names in the search list of international audiences. Amitabh Bachchan stands at the top 7th position with a monthly search average of 720K.

Fernando Angulo, Head of Communications, SEMrush, said, “It is always exciting to know about the film industry and surprisingly India and all other countries slightly have similar preference as Salman Khan is equally popular all around. What added to my surprise is that audiences value that genuine talent and still remember veteran Indian actor Amrish Puri and actress Madhubala as much as they search the celebrities with an active career. Also, there is not much difference in the search volume of present celebrities in comparison to Amrish Puri and Madhubala.”
