Virat Kohli is in the news again, but not because of his upcoming cricket match but because of his enormous fan followers on Instagram and for becoming one of the richest celebrities on Instagram platform.
Virat Kohli has more than 23 million followers on his Instagram account and according to Hopper HQ, he has entered the list of top 10 sportsman category on Instagram. Hopper HQ has also revealed that the Indian Skipper gets a whooping USD 1,20,000 for one post. Now that’s what we call a sixer.
The list comprised many sportsmen and surprisingly Virat Kohli is the only Delhi-based batsman who could secure the 17th position in the list. Guess what, Virat’s Instagram income is in fact one-tenth income of the American television celebrity Kylie Jenner who has topped the list of Instagram list of highest earning celebrity on Instagram and she gets paid USD 1 million for each post.
Kohli has left behind the popular basketball star Stephen Curry and also American pro-boxer Floyd Mayweather. They rank 10th and 11th respectively and earn a profit of USD 1,10,000 and 1,07,000 simultaneously for each post.
Cristiano Ronaldo tops the richest sportsmen on Instagram list whose profit per post is USD 7,50,000. He has recently signed a contract of four years with the Italian football giants Juventus.
England-based cricket fan club Barmy Army has recently named Kohli as the International Player, 2017-2018.
Instagram is the best platform to stay close to your favorite celebrity and only a few know how to top the chart.
