Most of us wake up to the bright screen of our phones and sleep looking at the same screen. And among everything’s there on the little gadget that’s within our palm, Instagram is one of our favorites! It’s colorful, interesting and there are hardly any aunties or uncles who will stalk you (unlike on Facebook). We share our selfies, travel photos, food photos, and almost every other experience worth remembering, with our followers on Instagram. To us, it’s a platform to connect with our friends and like-minded people. But, did you know that Instagram is one of the most important advertising media today?

If you are an influencer or an “Instagram model” with a few thousand followers, you would have probably been approached by small-scale businesses to promote their brand in your posts. And all this is not for free, you get paid! And if someone who isn’t really that famous can get paid for just a post, imagine how much the real-life celebrities would be earning on Instagram? Many celebrities all over the world earn quite a lot through their blue-ticked Instagram profile. Actress, entrepreneur, and producer Priyanka Chopra and Indian cricket team captain Virat Kohli are the ones who top the list of Indian celebrities when considering their earnings over the social media platform.

According to the Instagram Rich List 2019, Priyanka and Virat are the only two Indian celebrities to enter the 100 member list. While Priyanka is at the 19th position on the list as she charges $271,000 per post, fashion icon and entrepreneur Kylie Jenner tops the list with $1,266,000 per post. Kylie, the 22-year-old businesswoman, and media personality was named as the youngest billionaire on earth by Forbes magazine, earlier this year.

Coming back to the Indian celebrities, Priyanka Chopra Jonas isn’t just a Bollywood actress today and she has become a global icon in the past decade. If you closely observe her Instagram account, she doesn’t just have Indian fans. People all over the world are hailing PeeCee. India is a country, where the wage gap is quite evident even in the most developed and modern sectors of employment. Bollywood and regional film industries aren’t exceptions to this fact. Last year, according to Forbes, Deepika Padukone is the only female celebrity to enter the top ten of the richest Indian celebrity list. Gladly, the scenario has been changing in the past few years and more women-centric movies have been made in our country. And, Priyanka with her newly found phase in career is speeding towards the top of this list.
