Cristiano Ronaldo, Virat Kohli, Kylie Jenner, Selena Gomez, Lionel Messi, and more celebrities share many things in common. All of them have a huge fanbase. Another thing is being on Instagram’s most followed list. The photo-sharing app is one of the biggest social media platforms, with roughly 1 billion users from across the globe.
It has gone beyond just connecting people from one corner of the world to the other. It has also become a tool for marketing and business for many, and we see several celebrities endorsing a brand every now and then.
Recently, Virat Kohli hit the headlines after becoming the only Indian to have 200 followers on Instagram. This makes him the third sports person after Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi on the list of the celebrities with the most Instagram followers.

Though Kylie Jenner is at the second position on the list, it was Ariana Grande and Selena Gomez who were once called the ‘Queen of Instagram.’ But one cannot deny the influence Kylie has through her social media site. She likes to promote her make-up and skincare business a lot through it.
Meanwhile, Virat Kohli entering the list is a huge feat for him. It is another record broken by the cricketer, and this time it is not on the field.
