2018 has been an eventful year in Bollywood. Some amazing movies, some great losses, some smashing debuts and many big fat weddings (which are still going on btw). Through the year, many things have made headlines for all the above-mentioned reasons. So, as we near the end of the year, we bring you a list of your favourite Bollywood actors who’ve been searched for the most on Google, for various reasons.
Here are 10 most googled Bollywood celebrities of 2018 ranking from 1 to 10.
It has been quite a big year for our Desi girl, personally. Her American TV show Quantico may have gone off-air in August this year, but she has had her hands quite full. Not only was PeeCee involved in multiple philanthropist initiatives, but she also had a film that released, and was hugely appreciated by the critics. The film was called A Kid Like Jake. Earlier this year, we also got to see the trailer of one of her movies releasing in 2019 called Isn’t it Romantic? But amidst all this, the biggest news was PeeCee finding her better half in American pop singer Nick Jonas. The duo, who started seeing each other earlier this year, got married this month in Jodhpur, Rajasthan. It is only natural that Piggy Chops tops the most googled list of the year.
The earlier part of the year may have been riddled with controversy owing to the delay of her debut movie Kedarnath. But Sara had already broken the internet with multiple of her gym looks and casual spotting even before she made her debut on national television with Koffee With Karan. Adding to that was her family lineage of extremely talented parents. But after her performance in Kedarnath, the buzz around this star kid has only increased. I’m not surprised she’s the second most googled celebrity in this list.
Earlier this year, Salman Khan was convicted and sentenced to five years’ imprisonment by the court. While the other stars involved in the case was acquitted because of lack of evidence, Salman wasn’t. Now, the Jodhpur sessions court ruling suggests that every time the star goes abroad he has to seek permission from the court.
Deepika had started off the year with a bang thanks to Sanjay Leela Bhansali‘s Padmaavat. While she kept mum about her wedding that happened in November, she was busy planning for it for most part of the year. And we all got to see what a breathtaking wedding DP and Ranveer Singh had in Lake Como, Italy. It’s safe to say their wedding pictures broke the internet and how!
2018 was definitely the year of weddings and Sonam Kapoor started it off with her super fun and star-studded wedding that all of us absolutely adored. Right before her wedding was one her most anticipated movie Veere Di Wedding. Combining the success of Veere and her own wedding, Sonam ought to be on this list!
We all absolutely love Sonali. It was heartbreaking for us to find out that she had cancer. But, Sonali never hid anything about her journey from the world and told her fans how she’s planning to fight the disease head-on and with positivity. Even in such circumstances, she was a ray of sunshine and the internet loved her for it.

Sometimes, when you least expect it, life throws you a curveball. I have recently been diagnosed with a high grade cancer that has metastised, which we frankly did not see coming. A niggling pain led to some tests, which led to this unexpected diagnosis. My family and close friends have rallied around me, providing the best support system that anyone can ask for. I am very blessed and thankful for each of them. There is no better way to tackle this, than to take swift and immediate action. And so, as advised by my doctors, I am currently undergoing a course of treatment in New York. We remain optimistic and I am determined to fight every step of the way. What has helped has been the immense outpouring of love and support I’ve received over the past few days, for which I am very grateful. I’m taking this battle head on, knowing I have the strength of my family and friends behind me.
Arjun has been in the news ever since the untimely and shocking loss of the legendary actress Sridevi Boney Kapoor. Arjun and his sister Anshula Kapoor had immediately stepped in to support their father and sisters Janhvi Kapoor and Khushi Kapoor. Friends and fans praised both, Arjun and Anshula, for being a rock for their family in such hard times. Other than that, Arjun’s name had come up when he was linked with Malaika Arora and the speculations still continue as they are often spotted together. More recently, he had even appeared on Koffee With Karan with Janhvi and it was one of the most heartwarming episodes ever.
For the first half of the year, Janhvi was in the news because of the tragedy of her mother’s passing. But later, she was in the news for her extreme professionalism for having gone back to work mere weeks after the tragedy had taken place. Later, her debut film Dhadak had hit the screens and turned out to be a huge hit at the box-office.
Tanushree Dutta had broken the internet when she had disclosed that Nana Patekar had misbehaved with her on the sets of Horn Ok Pleassss. She is, in a way, a torchbearer of the #MeToo movement in Bollywood having spurred many women to speak up about being sexually exploited.
We were hit with yet another wave of shock when Irrfan announced that he was suffering from a rare form of cancer. But, he took to his social media to assure his fans and friends that he will be undergoing treatment for the rest of the year in London.
