We all know the kind of importance social media holds these days. From actors to politicians, every celebrity is busy handling his/her social media profile to keep themselves active with the fans. While the most followed Indian celebrity on Facebook remains the undefeated Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the one who followed was Bollywood actor Salman Khan. But recently, someone surpassed Bhaijaan’s following on the social media giant. Can you guess who he is?
Well, it’s none other than Virat Kohli. Yes, the captain of Team India has been gaining popularity in a massive way, and Virat overtook Salman’s following y around 6 lakh fans. Virat was recently in news after Anil Kumble resigned as the coach of the team following some rifts with the player. But it does not seem to have decreased his popularity AT ALL.
While PM Modi has over 42 million followers, Virat follows with over 35 million followers. He is in the second position of the list that also has Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra, who have become global stars by now.
Besides Facebook, the skipper has 16 million followers on Twitter and 14 million on Instagram. And with this, he has become the most famous cricketer of all times.
