Bhojpuri films have left Bollywood movies far behind in 2018 when it comes to Google search, Mint reported, citing recent Google Trends data.
This comes as an unusual trend as Bollywood, second most popular film industry in the world after Hollywood, has more reach that the Bhojpuri cinema.
Over the last five years, Bollywood has topped in film searches, said the report. However, since 2015, Bhojpuri films related searches have seen a sharp spike with the industry beating Hindi cinema this year, added the report.
In 2014, India internet users googled Bhojpuri films as much as they searched Tamil and Telugu movies, as per the report.
According to the report, film-related searches have increased since 2015, far ahead of the searches for steadier news and cricket.
Google Trends, a tool used by the search engine operator to measure the search interest in different terms and topics queried on Google, showed a significant portion of searches for Hindi films is for Hindi versions of south Indian films, the report said. Rajinikanth's 2.0 was one of the most searched films of the year, it added.
