Why were you guys searching Syllvester Stallone, though?

And it's that time of the year again.

With 2018 coming to an end, Google let us know who the top trending people were for the year, and the results are fascinating.

Google released its lists containing most searched people, news and events, based on search terms that had a high spike in traffic for the past year.

Here are the top ten most searched people in Pakistani Google.

1) Bushra Manika

The First Lady was the most Googled person of 2018 and we're not surprised. There were only rumours of her spiritual powers when PM Imran Khan tied the knot with her in January — and of course, everyone, Insafians or not, needed to know more.

She's made headlines quite a few times since then — like when her ex-husband sung her praises and left people quite confused or the hullabulloo that erupted about her veiled attire when IK was sworn in.

2) Meghan Markle

Royal wedding. Need we say more?

3) Meesha Shafi

The singer was the first celebrity in the entertainment industry to accuse another from the fraternity of sexual harassment.

4) Reham Khan

Reham's biography came out this year and turns out it aired more of IK's dirty laundry than her own. It led to several public spats with many devout Insafians like Hamza Ali Abbasi.

5) Sylvester Stallone

A surprise entry on the list, we can only assume that Stallone was trending for his lack of Bollywood knowledge. Remember when he mixed up Salman Khan and Bobby Deol?

6)Sonali Bendre

The Bollywood actor has been sharing her battle with cancer with fans and followers on social media and recently marked a triumphant return to India after initial treatment.

7) Atif Mian

After being asked to serve as member of PM Imran Khan's new Economic Advisory Council, world-renowned economist Atif Mian was removed after mounting pressure from religiopolitical parties.

8) Hanif Abbasi

PML-N leader Hanif Abbasi was sentenced to life imprisonment in the long-running ephedrine quota case in July this year.

9) Iqra Aziz

It was a breakout year for Iqra Aziz, whose turn in Suno Chanda made her a household name. We can't wait for the sequel!

10) Sunny Leone

Because of her lipsticks...
