I have a search query on the attribute table which highlights the features and then zooms to that particular layer. I take a bookmark for this particular view with the selection being highlighted. But later when I see the same bookmark it does not highlight those selected features.Any settings or any other plugin for this.

No. The bookmark only saves the extent but not the information about selection.

You can permanently save selections by exporting the selection to a new file: Right-click in layer list an choose "Save selection as ...".
