Baahubali 2 was the biggest movie event of the year, a fact that Twitter's 2017 report reflects. Bigg Boss 11 and Tamil film Mersal are at second and third spots - #bb11 and #mersal. Better luck next time, Bollywood.
Other hashtags that rocked Twitter this year were related to Diwali, the Goods and Services Tax or GST, Prime Minister Narendra Modi's radio address Mann Ki Baat, and various cricket tournaments.
