The popularity of any celebrity is time-bound and it fades away with time as someone else takes away the ‘most popular’ spot from the former celebrity.

And when it comes to judging who’re the most popular celebrites in the world,the very first parameter to evaluate this may be Who’re the most searched celebrities in the world ?

But as wikipedia tops hundreds of thousands of search results when a particular celebrity is searched(wikipedia mostly shows person’s biography,achievements etc) so Who’re the most popular celebrities on Wikipedia ? has its own significance.

So,we have compiled a list of popular celebrites which are currently the most viewed (bringing maximum pageviews) on Wikipedia. Some of the results are really astounding but fact is a fact…
