“Indians have been turning to the web to find out more about their favorite stars for over a decade now and we’ve been evolving Google Search to give them richer, better answers” explained Google India’s Marketing Head, Sapna Chadha. “With around 1 in 10 mobile searches in India related to Indian cinema, we recently launched a range of immersive Search experiences that give film lovers an easy way to discover and explore everything they want to know about their favorite movies, stars, music, dialogues actors and more”
Now when you ask Google questions about films, actors, song lyrics, film trivia, trailers, screening times and more, you’ll get rich, contextual answers. For example try asking Google “What films has Prabhu Deva directed?” or “Who starred in the film Hero” and Google Search now shows rich, contextual answers. These Search experiences were highlighted at an event in Mumbai featuring Director Karan Johar — the second most searched for director in the last 10 years — where Google launched a video tribute to Indian cinema.
