Earlier this week, Forbes’ released a list of top 100 earning celebrities around the world and Salman was nowhere to be seen. This list by Google tells that though he might be having bank balance like SRK (who was on 86th on the Forbes list) and Akshay (who occupied 94th position); but Salman’s fan following can not be challenged. He might be controversy’s favourite child but seems almost everyone wants to know every single detail about him.

On the same lines of Salman’s fan following is the way once adult star Sunny Leone. She has developed a niche for herself in Bollywood. Many movies ride on the sole name of Sunny, and it is her siren personality that brings fans to movies. But it is not only because of her movies that she has an immense popularity. Though she has long ago shed her ‘adult star’ tag but a major portion of Sunny’s search on Google has to do with it.

Controversies or no, adult movies or comedy, this Google list confirms that it will be a long time before someone displaces Salman and Sunny from their positions.
