Virat Kohli Tops List of India’s Most Powerful Celebrities

These are India’s biggest celebrities.


India has just released a list of its most powerful celebrity brands. Unsurprisingly Virat Kohli, Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh are on the list.

Duff and Phelps released the fourth list of India’s Most Powerful Celebrity Brands. Interestingly Virat Kohli is the only non-actor among the Top Ten in the list.

The list, which has been compiled by finance advisers, has plenty of public figures. We have included the top 10 powerful celebrities for the same:

1. Virat Kohli

The Indian Cricket Team Captain is currently valued at US $170.9 million. Based on Duff & Phelps managing director Aviral Jain’s statement, plenty of sportspeople are in the list but only one in the top 10. The cricketing prodigy has 24 brands endorsements of various sorts.

While Bollywood celebrities dominate the rankings of the top 20 celebrities, sportspersons provide tough competition. Virat Kohli, Sachin Tendulkar, MS Dhoni and PV Sindhu collectively contributed almost USD 241 million, which is over 27 per cent of the cumulative brand value of the top 20 celebrities pegged at USD 877 million.”
