Sunny Leone bags the title of India's most searched female celebrity in 2017

One might think of Priyanka Chopra or Deepika Padukone when thinking about the most popular female celebrities in Bollywood, who have both become global icons. But would you be surprised if you found out it is not these ladies who enjoy undisputable popularity, but in fact, it is actress Sunny Leone who has been named as India's most searched female celebrity in 2017 by Yahoo for the sixth time in a row. While Priyanka Chopra came in second, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Katrina Kaif and Deepika Padukone rounded off the top five.

In an interview, the Jism 2 star expressed her joy over retaining the title once again. "I feel blessed this came my way. I have to keep moving forward. I'm thankful to my fans for this," she said. The actress is now all set to make her debut in a Telugu period drama that will feature her as a warrior. "My character is that of a strong, independent woman. Some are claiming that this will change my image, I do not believe in it. I believe everything is a stepping stone towards something greater," the actress stated of her role in the yet-untitled film.
