Katrina Kaif ecstatic to be most googled name
“I really didn’t expect this,” says a surprised but delighted Katrina Kaif on being voted the most searched name on the Internet, which also means she is more popular among net-savvy youngsters. “I’m not too Internet-savvy...Google is the only thing I know. Who doesn’t want to be recognised and loved? It’s really sweet as it means I’m a little more popular with the younger generation. People between 19 and 30 go to the Internet more. And that’s the audience I want to connect with,” says Katrina.
