Google India has released its annual year ‘Year in Search 2019’ list in several categories that gives a glimpse of what made news in the country. While Shahid Kapoor’s film Kabir Singh took the top spot in the most searched films category beating Avengers: Endgame, army man Abhinandan Varthaman took the numero uno spot beating all Bollywood celebs in the most searched personalities.
Abhinandan was followed by Lata Mangeshkar who occupied the second spot. The veteran singer’s ill health and hospitalization sent a wave of fear and anxiety amongst her countless fans that resulted in an upsurge on the search volume on Google. The 90-year-old singer has been one of the top trends ever since she was hospitalized on November 11 after being diagnosed with pneumonia.
