Mukesh Ambani led the list of YIR's 2014 Finance Newsmakers. Also on this year's list are Apple Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Tim Cook, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella and Infosys CEO and managing director Vishal Sikka.
"Coming to the nation's most influential people, Mukesh Ambani makes a second appearance at the No.1 spot, with Tata Group boss Cyrus Mistry and Gautam Adani, chief of the Adani Group of Industries, making up the top three," the report said. "Not surprising for a cricket-crazy nation, the game continued to dominate the most-searched sports. Alongside M.S. Dhoni and Virat Kohli, Sachin Tendulkar - wielding a pen this time for his much talked about autobiography - featured among cricketers of the year," it said. Boxer Mary Kom, who became the first Indian woman boxer to win a gold medal at the Asian Games, clinched her position among the Brightest Sports Stars, as did fellow boxer Sarita Devi, who came in the same category. Sunny Leone was the most searched celebrity for the third year in a row. Deepika Padukone reserved her place among the top-searched celebs, with Alia Bhatt joining the list.
