search_name method returns list and each element of list work as a dictionary i.e. they can be queried by giving the key of the data, here key will be name.

Syntax : names[0][‘name’]

Here names is the list return by search_name method and names[0] refer to the first element of list.

Return : It returns string i.e name.

# importing the module
import imdb
   
# creating instance of IMDb
ia = imdb.IMDb()
   
# name of the person
name = "Nawazudin Siddiqui"
   
# searching the name of the person
search = ia.search_person(name)
  
# prinitng whole list
print(search)
  
# printing the name
for i in range(len(search)):
    print(search[i]['name'])
