Close on the heels of 'Big Brother' and Richard Gere, Shilpa Shetty has emerged the most 'searched' person in the universe. According to a recent yahoo.com search engine database, Shilpa leads in the search of her name the world over, preceding names like Angelina Jolie, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Beyonce Knowles, Brad Pitt, Britney Spears, Carmen Electra, Drew Barrymore, Eva Longoria, Halle Berry, Harry Potter, Hilary Duff, Jennifer Aniston, Jennifer Lopez, Lindsay Lohan, Pamela Anderson, Paris Hilton and Tobey Maguire.

"Though Shilpa is not very net savvy, she deserves all she's got and more," says her spokesperson Dale Bhagwagar. "She's always been a trendsetter, but it's only after 'Big Brother' that people's perceptions have really changed," he adds.

It is noteworthy that the actress has also been flooded with thousands of mails ever since she opened her e-mail account. "Its been manic for her going through all those mails, but whenever she finds the time she tries to personally reply to as many as possible," Dale informs.
