The 37-year-old actress is by far the most popular Indian figure in terms of Google searches, generating more interest than the rest of Bollywood.

The same report states that the searches peaked in June after Sunny's husband Daniel Webber took to Instagram and shared a 'bold' picture of their family on Father’s Day. The post was criticised by many as well.

September witnessed the unveiling of her wax statue at Madame Tussaud in New Delhi. Her biopic series, Karenjit Kaur –The Untold Story of Sunny Leone season 2, also stated streaming mid-September. The series delves deeper into the life of the actress and gives an insight of her struggles.

According to the Goggle trends report, the Bhojpuri industry has garnered more attention this year than any other Bollywood films. Among celebs whose popularity rose tremendously this year in terms of Google searches are Priya Prakash Varrier, who became an overnight sensation with her wink in her Malayalam debut movie, and Bigg Boss contestant Sapna Choudhary.
