1. Katrina Kaif: If one celebrity suceeded in beating the surge of search queries following Michael Jackson's death was Katrina Kaif.
2. Michael Jackson: The death of the King of Pop also had Indians searching for him online, taking him to the No. 2 position on Zeitgeist India.
3. Salman Khan: Salman Khan is always in the news and has a fan following perhaps no other current Bollywood actor commands.
4. Aishwariya Rai: Often referred to as the most beautiful woman on the planet Aishwariya Rai generates interest online even if she isn't appearing in many movies.
5. Shahid Kapoor: Doesn't matter if it is Kapoor or Kapur, Shahid does one better than former girlfriend Kareena. While Kareena is on No. 6, Shahid finds a place on Zeitgeist India right up there at No. 5.
6. Kareena Kapoor: Kareena Kapoor always keeps Indians on the net interested. She is a regular on Google Zeitgeist India.
7. Shahrukh Khan: The King Khan has climed a step higher than his No. 8 ranking in the 2008 list. But compared to 2007, when SRK was at No. 5 on the most popular search list, the superstar's magic seems to be washing off a little.
8. Angelina Jolie: She is perhaps the most recognisable Hollywood face in India over the years and this reflects in her being the eighth most sought after celebrity in India online.
9. Megan Fox: Though Indians are interested in Hollywood, but the level on interest pales when compared to Bollywood and Google's Zeitgeist lists are evidence of the fact. While there were no Hollywood celebrities on the Google Zeitgeist India list in 2007 and 2008, in 2009 Megan Fox is the only other Hollywood actress on the list.
10. Sachin Tendulkar: We all are aware of the statement "If cricket is a religion, Sachin is God" and there is no question of Sachin's mass popularity in India. But on the Internet compared to India's other 'demigods' the cinema celebrities the Master Blaster looks a little out of form.
