In this heavy competitive place to keep a touch with the fans is a necessity. Therefore, stars leave no stone unturned to become lead the social media game. Not only do the box office collections take charge, but the social media numbers also play a big role in judging the stars stardom.
Talking about social media, Twitter has always been the most loved and picked by the megastars. Bollywood Shahenshah, Amitabh Bachchan, has for long enjoyed the position of the most followed Indian on Twitter, but Big B has lost this title to his K3G son. Yes, we’re talking about none other than King Khan- Shah Rukh Khan. SRK has
overpowered Amitabh Bachchan to and become the second most followed Indian on Twitter, after PM Narendra Modi.
While SRK enjoys a followership of 32,932,668; Big B has 32,919,128 followers on the micro-blogging site. Meanwhile, Prime Minister Narendra Modi remains on the top with 39.8 million followers.
Earlier in an interview, throwing light on Social Media, Amitabh Bachchan elucidated, Earlier speaking in an interview, Big B had said, “Social media gives someone the opportunity to express themselves. You’ve never had that opportunity before, you never knew what others were thinking about you, at least now you know. And the good part is, it lasts for a day or half-a-day; the next day, something else comes up. Things move so rapidly in today’s life that you don’t have time. One’s attention span is so limited and so small. Whether it is watching the news on TV, every two minutes you hear a bang in the middle of the most sincere news, purely because they don’t want you to get to your remote and change the channel. That’s how life has become. Social media gives everybody a voice, everybody an opportunity, everybody a democratic opportunity to express themselves. What’s wrong with that?’
With this marginal difference, it is not tough for Big B to regain its position. But only time will decide, who is able to lead the race for a longer time, as both the stars are quite active on social media platforms.
The others to reach the top 10 list on Twitter are Sachin Tendulkar and Virat Kohli.ADD WATCHLIST
