While the debate over who’s the supreme Bollywood actor continues with some crowning Shahrukh Khan ahead of arch rival Aamir Khan and many putting the still impeccable Amitabh Bachchan on the centre stage, the recent Twitter crown has just found a new head.
Enter Mr. Amitabh Bachchan, Exit Miss Priyanka Chopra! That’s the latest story from the world of Twitter, the micro blogging site that has been graced by celebs from every field. If you are on Twitter, chances are that you must be following some of your favourite movie stars and sports players. And some of the biggest names have got followers from all across the globe.
Take for instance, Piggy Chops (Priyanka) who, hitherto, was the reigning Twitter queen with a mammoth fan following. But now Sir Amitabh Bachchan has edged past her garnering a whopping 1,850,903 followers. With Priyanka sitting on 1,841,804, the crown has clearly passed on. Hail the angry, young man!
These numbers are not as significant as some of the mighty ones of western stars like Justin Bieber but are good enough to become the most followed Indian star. After Amitabh and Priyanka, lie the cricket’s ‘Superman’ Sachin Tendulkar who boasts of 1,786,243 followers which is spectacular given the fact that the God of Cricket rarely tweets. Shahrukh Khan and Aamir Khan round off the top 5 with 1,612,989 and 1,506,083 followers respectively!
Box office’s new ‘Badshah’ Salman Khan takes the 6th spot.
Here are the top 6 Twitteratis:
- Amitabh Bachchan
- Priyanka Chopra
- Sachin Tendulkar
- Shahrukh Khan
- Aamir Khan
- Salman Khan
But, as you see, there is a very thin line of separation between some of them. And don’t be surprised if the Twitter tiara is passed on to someone else soon. Priyanka Chopra is the sole lady in that coveted list of top 6. Only if someone like Aishwarya or Katrina join the Twitter wagon, these ranks can take a serious shuffling.
