Virat Kohli is second only to PM Modi in popularity on Facebook
Well, Virat Kohli has certainly become an icon for millions of his followers. His aggressive, bold and blunt style on and off the field has given him an unparalleled star status.

In fact, despite being so young, he has shown a very mature approach on the ground or while speaking to media. Moreover, his recent controversy with former Indian cricket coach Anil Kumble seems to have added more search logs on social media.

The vibrant captain of the Indian cricket team now has 3,57,25,719 fans on Facebook, 16 million followers on Twitter and 14 million on Instagram, thus making him the world's most famous cricketer of all time. In terms of social media popularity, Virat Kohli is now just behind Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who has 42.2 million Facebook followers.

Interestingly, in this journey of becoming the second most popular celebrity on Facebook in the country, he has successfully surpassed Bollywood superstar Salman Khan by more than 6,00,000 followers.

Virat Kohli also leads the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the IPL. After taking over charge of the Indian team from Mahendra Singh Dhoni as skipper, he successfully led India to Test series wins against New Zealand, England and Australia. Even in the recently concluded ICC Champions Trophy, barring the defeat against Pakistan in the final, Virat Kohli displayed excellent captaincy skills. No wonder, he is the second most popular Indian on Facebook.

Just type Narendra Modi, Virat Kohli and Salman Khan on any search engine and you would get to know of it yourself. Proud of you, skipper!
