Pawan Kalyan, brother of actor-turned-politician Chiranjeevi, has topped the list of celebrity candidates searched on Google.

Kalyan, who recently launched a new political party 'JanSena', ranked ahead of names like actress Ramya (Divya Spandana) and poet-turned-politician Kumar Vishwas from Aam Aadmi Party.

"A lot of celebrities are contesting in 16th Lok Sabha elections. Celebrities have always been a major draw for political parties in the Indian electoral process, especially in the campaigning phase but they are expected to play a bigger role in this election season," Google said in a statement.

Search related to Bollywood actress and political debutant Nagma, contesting for the first time on a Congress ticket from Meerut (UP), were almost double as compared to BJP MP Hema Malini (contesting from Mathura).

Bollywood actress Rakhi Sawant also gained significant response online with the launch of her new political party Rashtriya Aam Party in Mumbai, ranking seventh in the search list.

Although the clash between actress Gul Panag from AAP and Kirron Kher from BJP for the Chandigarh Lok Sabha seat created a lot of buzz online, they didn't make it to the top 10.

Others on the list include Chiranjeevi, stand-up comedian Raju Srivastava and Bhojpuri superstar Manoj Tiwari.

Rashtriya Lokdal candidate from Bijnor (UP) Jaya Prada and Bengali film star Dev (contesting from West Midnapore in West Bengal on Trinamool Congress ticket) also made it to the list.
