Amitabh Bachchan has proved to be the “Shahenshah” of Bollywood with this achievement. Yes, he not only rules the Film industry with his grace and charm, but he also rules social media, which has become an integral part these days.
Now, he has beaten Salman, SRK, Aamir Khan as well as Akshay Kumar! Do you know how? Well, Twitter released a list of most followed celebrities of 2016 and Big B left all of them behind.
However, do you have any idea as to who has topped the list? Any guesses? Well, it is none other than PM Modi; it was expected, considering the huge fan following he enjoys.
Narendra Modi has topped the list with 25.5 million followers, followed by Big B, having 23.9 million followers. SRK enjoys 22.5 million followers while Salman has 20.7 million. Aamir Khan is the lowest of all Khans with 19.3 million followers, followed by Deepika Padukone with 16.8 million. After Deepika Padukone, we have Priyanka Chopra and Hrithik Roshan with 15.7 and 15.5 million followers respectively. Akshay Kumar is very close i.e. he has 15.3 million followers and he is followed by Virat Kohli who has 13.3 million followers.
The reason why Amitabh Bachchan stands 2nd in the list is because he is a very active celebrity on Twitter and always makes efforts of replying to fans; this is what has made him everyone’s favorite.
Deepika and Priyanka are the only 2 actresses to be featured in the list and this might be because of their Hollywood movies. Who else did you expect to feature in this list? Do share your views in our comments section below!
