Virat Kohli trumps Salman Khan, Priyanka Chopra, Anushka Sharma on Facebook, has 35 mn followers. See ranking here

While Cristiano Ronaldo leads this world list, followed by Shakira and Vin Diesel, Virat’s position surely makes the entire nation proud. In a star-stuck India, you surely either need to be a cricketer or a movie star to win the love of the people, as Bollywood and cricket are two areas where emotions are at its highest and its superstars are worshiped like Gods. He might be leading fiery and competitive cricket matches against India’s onfield arch rivals, but he also gets enough love from the neighbouring nation. Virat’s fans in Pakistan stand at 1,107,704. And as much as his fan following can be seen inside the stadium while he is playing, so can be found even outside. It isn’t surprising to see PM Modi trumping all the other stars with these many fans, but Virat’s ranking is surely something to reckon with. No, we aren’t talking about any box office numbers or an endorsement deal. The only personality who is above Virat is Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi who has 42,285,934 Facebook followers. But until then, Virat is the undisputed king of Facebook. With 35,726,291, Virat has emerged the star with the most number of Facebook followers, surpassing the B-town biggies like Salman Khan, Deepika Padukone, Priyanka Chopra and even Amitabh Bachchan. Also, as we write this, Salman’s followers are only increasing. This purely shows that it is Indian followers which have made the cricketer more loved on Facebook that the actor. Virat has overthrown all of Bollywood stars. (GRAPHIC CREDIT: Social Bakers)

Virat Kohli has become the king of Facebook in India by defeating the entire Bollywood. While Salman’s followers have seen a surge, thanks to his latest release Tubelight and all the promotionals that happened around it in the past few days, it won’t be wrong if the actor overtakes Virat in the coming days, as the two only have a small difference of 608,140.
