Twitter Top 10: Indian Celebrities with Highest Number of Followers

If you’re a social media buff, I am sure you must have wondered about who are the top 10 Indians with most number of followers on Twitter. Or may be who is the most followed Indian person on Twitter? To answer these questions, we decided to do research and we made a simple list of Indian celebrities with highest number of fan following on micro-blogging site, Twitter.

Celebrities all over the world use Twitter and Facebook to connect with their fans. Although, Indian celebrities were a bit late to jump on to the bandwagon -but they finally have arrived! The presented list was compiled in September, 2014. Bollywood actor Amitabh Bachchan leads the pack with over a million Twitter follower. And likewise, most of these people are actors in Bollywood. Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has been a new entrant into this list following his high-pitch election campaign which he won!

Let’s look at the list!

Rank Name Twitter Handle Followers Profession
1 Amitabh Bachchan @SrBachchan 17,655,580 Actor
2 Shahrukh Khan @iamsrk 16,039,231 Actor
3 Narendra Modi @narendramodi 15,875,068 Politician
4 Aamir Khan @aamir_khan 15,186,752 Actor
5 Salman Khan @BeingSalmanKhan 14,611,808 Actor
6 Dalai Lama @DalaiLama 12,069,856 Spiritual Leader
7 Deepika Padukone @deepikapadukone 11,919,349 Actor
8 Hrithik Roshan @iHrithik 11,587,191 Actor
9 Priyanka Chopra @priyankachopra 11,534,606 Actor
10 Akshay Kumar @akshaykumar 10,349,405 Actor

So, as we said, the list is dominated by Bollywood stars. In fact, Narendra Modi is the only non-actor person in top 10 list of highest number of followers. Amitabh Bachchan is the most followed person in India. He is undoubtedly the super-duper megastar of Indian cinema. And he rules the Indian Twitter as well. His closest competitor, Shahrukh Khan is way behind him and it is unlikely that the Bachchan senior will get dethroned in near future.

We hope you liked this list and it helped answering your question on who are the leading Indians on Twitter. Thank you for using TechWelkin.
