Priyanka Chopra and Virat Kohli: Only Indians to Make it to Instagram Rich List

Priyanka Chopra and Virat Kohli are the only Indians who have apparently made to the Instagram rich list. A UK-based company has released a list which features a variety of celebrities ranked in order of how much they charge per post on Instagram

Priyanka Chopra and Virat Kohli are two of India's most accomplished personalities who have gained recognition globally for their achievements. Virat Kohli, married to Bollywood star Anushka Sharma, has gained fame for his cricketing skills and captaincy and of course, staying super fit. Virat also takes on numerous brand endorsements and is considered to be quite the brand in himself. Priyanka Chopra gained accolades for her work in Bollywood and was crowned Miss Universe as well. She has released singles in Hollywood and has recently gotten married to Hollywood star Nick Jonas. 

In this day in age, social media has become the bench mark for pretty much everything. Life without social media has become impossible and we turn to social media for pretty much everything; having become an integral part of our everyday lives. Through social media we are informed about what our favourite celebrities, socialites, friends and families are up to.

And probably one of the most commonly used social media apps is Instagram. It is through social media that we can now stay connected with celebrities and the digital world.

Now, a UK-based social media management and marketing solutions service company has released a list which features a variety of celebrities, all of whom are ranked in order of how much they each charge per every sponsored post they put up on Instagram. The categories included are entertainment, beauty, lifestyle, sports, fashion, and travel.

With the list being released, it is pertinent to note that there are only two Indian celebrities who have been included on the list. Bollywood beauty Priyanka Chopra and India Cricket Team Captain are on the list, on number number 19 and 23 spots respectively. According to the company, the Isn’t It Romantic star charges USD 271,000 (Rs1.87 crores) and Virat Kohli charges USD 196,000 (Rs 1.35 crores) for one sponsored post on their individual profiles on the photo-video sharing platform. Wowza! That means, the desc girl charges more for a sponsored post than the Indian skipper when it comes to Instagram.

The list covers celebrities across a variety of genres and is topped by none other than Kylie Jenner, who charges a whopping USD 1.26 million (Rs 8.73 crore) per post, followed by Ariana Grande, Cristiano Ronaldo, Kim Kardashian and Selena Gomez at USD 996,000 (Rs 6.87 crores), USD 975,000 (Rs 6.72 crores), USD 910,000 (Rs 6.28 crores) and USD 886,000 (Rs 6.11 crores) respectively.
