When Facebook unveiled the list of Most Followed Indian Celebrities on it, the list was logically expected to be topped by Bollywood stars. With relatively smaller reach, its almost impossible for any South actor to feature in the list. However, Indian cricket team captain Virat Kohli and diva Kajal Aggarwal have surprised all with their stunning feats.
While Virat Kohli leads the Top 15 list with a follower count of 35.8 million, Kajal takes the 15th place with 23.2 million followers. She is the only South Indian actress to feature in the list. Although her roots are in North India, Kajal shot to fame with South films only. She did a couple of Bollywood films too, but only after becoming a star in South.
Salman Khan, Deepika Padukone, Priyanka Chopra and Rapper Yo Yo Honey Singh occupy the 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th spots respectively. Sachin Tendulkar, Singer Shreya Ghoshal, Amitabh Bachchan, Madhuri Dixit and ace comedian Kapil Sharma make it to the Top 10. Sonakshi Sinha, Akshay Kumar, Shahrukh Khan, AR Rahman and Kajal Agarwal (23.2 million followers) grab the 11 to 15 places in that order.
In comparison, Tollywood heroes lag far behind. Allu Arjun (12.5 million), Prabhas (9.3 million) and Mahesh Babu (4.9 million) are the Top 3 Most Followed Tollywood Stars on Facebook.
