We Indians are obsessed with celebrities. We want to know everything about them – from their vital stats to where they vacationed last. However, there are a few who have been making news for either their relationship status or their latest mega releases. Thus, it comes as no surprise that they have earned a spot amongst the most searched celebrities on the Internet.

This comes as no surprise because everyone and anyone were curious about this Baby Doll’s pink lips. (No pun intended, you dirty people.)
2. MS Dhoni
Things were very exciting for Dhoni in 2015. First, he became a father and then, under his captaincy, India won 7 consecutive matches in the 2015 World Cup! Then in June, Dhoni featured in Forbes’ list of the highest-paid athletes in the world with an estimated earnings of USD 31 million. No wonder he features so high on this list.

DP gave her fans a lot to rejoice about. With one hit movie after another, DP arrived on the Bollywood scene as an established actor when she won hearts in Piku, Tamasha and Bajirao Mastani. According to Bing’s research data, her fan base almost doubled this year. That’s why she holds a spot on this list.

Her relationship with beau Ranbir Kapoor has been a favourite topic of discussion for almost everyone.

It’s safe to say that 2015 proved lucky for him.
