The Force and Harry Potter were no match for a different kind of superhero as Deadpool and “Deadpool Kills the Universe” dominated the movie and book charts this year. Game of Thrones  kept The Walking Dead away to once again claim the Iron Throne as the most popular TV show of 2016. Twenty One Pilots had no need to feel “Stressed Out” as their single came in as the number one most streamed song of the year, but don’t feel “Sorry” for Justin Bieber who came in at number two. And, of course, Pokemon GO captured the top trending game spot.

Closer home, BeautyPlus Me – Perfect Camera and Voot TV Shows Movies Cartoons were top trending apps, proving India’s love for selfies, pouts and cinema. The theme continued in the top trending Indian games as well with Salman Khan starrer Sultan’s official game Sultan: The Game coming in as the number two trending game after Train Simulator 2016.
