kinds of news are hard to swallow but then numbers do not lie.
Recent numbers say that Trisha Krishnan has beaten even the
three Khans – Shahrukh, Salman and Aamir emerging as one of the
most downloaded actors on mobile phones in 2012. Well, South
India has shown a strong liking for imagery, with pictures of
Trisha seeing downloads 325 per cent higher than the numbers
seen for the top five Bollywood actors put together including
the Khans. Of course it is also a fact that men outnumber women
by a huge margin so it is no surprise that pictures of women
beat those of men.
Shahrukh Khan led the category of Bollywood actors’ wallpaper
downloads, with Salman Khan, Ajay Devgn, Akshay Kumar and Ranbir
Kapoor in the top five. Aamir Khan did not fare in this list for
the third year in a row.
However, it is Katrina Kaif, who has become
the highest downloaded celebrity on mobile phones in the year
2012. She has seen off competition from Kareena Kapoor and
Priyanka Chopra and Trisha to emerge as the most downloaded
celebrity on mobile phones in the year 2012. The ‘Ek Tha Tiger’
star continued to maintain the leading position in the category
of images downloaded for the fourth consecutive year, followed
by Kareena, Priyanka, Anushka Sharma and Vidya Balan.
Popular song ‘Kolaveri Di’ continuedto maintain the top position
in 2012 as well. Though reasonably popular, the worldwide rage
‘Gangnam Style’ did not experience similar success among mobile
Internet users in India and could not beat ‘Kolaveri Di’s’
strong local success. The song ‘Teri Meri’ from
‘Bodyguard’ ranked second in this segment, lagging behind by 20
per cent. ‘Dabangg’ topped the charts as the most viewed movie
on Airtel Video Talkies, while ‘Singham led on Airtel Audio
Talkies. The epic ‘Sholay’ continues to be an all-time favourite
with customers, who till date, are still tuning into the audio
edition of the movie on Airtel Audio Talkies.
