Yup, we tried it too, and the Indian flag does show up when you look up "namak haraam country".

While a lot of people are laughing or getting angry at the search results, there's a simple reason why India comes up, and it's this 1973 Bollywood film called Namak Haraam.

Looking up certain movie names and the country of their origin will sometimes show you the country's flag.

Because THAT's also a Bollywood movie.
