Google is our one stop solution for everything. From searching coffee shops near our work to learning about GST and Jallikattu, the search giant has answers to all queries. As 2017 is all set to bid adieu, like every year's tradition, Google has released an annual list of popular searches. While some will make you feel nostalgic, other entries might make you wonder, 'why are they in?'. With Bahubali 2 topping the chart, we also have some flop flicks such as Half Girlfriend and Munna Michael in the list. While it is obvious why Bahubali 2 is on the top but finding Munna Michael and Half Girlfriend making it to the top search has left everyone astonished.
The fantasy-action movie by S S Rajamouli which sent fans into frenzy with its release, created a history by minting Rs 10 billion in just ten days. Starring Prabhas, Anushka Shetty, Rana Daggubati, Sathyaraj in the pivotal roles, the magnum opus broke several records.
Indian Premier League
2017 saw the 10th edition of Indian Premier League, also known as IPL 10. First introduced in 2007 by BCCI, the tournament had eight teams battling against each other. Mumbai Indians won the final defeating Rising Pune Supergiant by 1 run.
Live Cricket Score
Cricket is above most of the daily stuffs for Indians. With matches going on for almost entire year, live cricket score has to be one of the top Google searches for 2017. We know it would continue to find the spot even in the forthcoming year.
Aamir Khan-starrer film which released last year on Christmas did wonders not only in India but also in China. Based on real-life story of wrestler Mahavir Singh Phogat and her two daughters, Geeta Phogat and Babita Phogat, the movie minted Rs 2,112 crore.
Based on Chetan Bhagat's novel with same name, Half Girlfriend starring Arjun Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor failed to impress audience but managed to make it to top 10 searches on Google this year.
Badrinath Ki Dulhania
The romantic comedy which brought again the crackling chemistry of Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt earned Rs 200 crore worldwide. The movie received love from audience and its songs became huge hit.
Why? I mean how. How could a flop Munna Michael be among top 10 searches of 2017? But we have no other option than believing in the fact. Featuring Tiger Shroff, Niddhi Agerwal and Nawazuddin Siddiqui, it is an action dance film helmed by Sabbir Khan.
After much delay, Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif starrer Jagga Jasoos released this year in July but failed to impress audience. The comedy adventure flick directed by Anurag Basu received mix response from critics.
Champions Trophy 2017
2017 ICC Champions Trophy was also among Google's top 10 searches. The final saw a crushing defeat for Team India by Pakistan. The margin of victory was the largest in any ICC ODI tournament in terms of runs.
Shah Rukh-starrer Raees which released in January 2017 received mixed response. The crime action movie helmed by Rahul Dholakia became second highest-grossing Bollywood movie of 2017.
