Virat Kohli is not only shattering the records on the field but his off-field persona is also something which is a major highlight of his cricket career. Kohli enjoys a huge fan following irrespective of what a few critics say about him. Recently, Kohli achieved yet another milestone and became the first Indian to get 250 Million followers on Instagram.
Kohli is only behind the star footballers Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi who have the unbeatable numbers on their social media handle among the sports personalities.
Although the Indian legends like Sachin Tendulkar and MS Dhoni has their immense and densed fan following, Kohli is far away from the players in terms of social media stature.
Former Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni under whom India won the 2007 T20 World Cup, 50-over World Cup and then the ICC Champions Trophy is second on the list among Indian sports personalities. The current CSK captain has 42.5 Million followers on his instagram handle.
Sachin Tendulkar(40.5 M) is a few inches behind MS Dhoni. Rohit Sharma (28.5) and Hardik Pandya (25.9 M) is also in the list.
