India thrives on the lives and doings of celebrities. Right from the gossips of celebrities to their weddings, to catching a little glimpse of them, Indians would go to almost any extent to know the minutest of details about their favourite celebrities. The celebrities are of course an integral part of our lives and it is needless to say the value that we have attached to them.
Other than the value that we have attached to our favourite celebrities, there is yet another type of “value” that these celebrities can be associated with, and that is their celebrity brand value. All the celebrities come with their brand value, and what we got this year is nothing less than a shocker.
Guess Who Topped The List?
It was none other than our very own Virat Kohli. He has gone pretty high in the ladder of success, and this year he has been ranked as the most valuable Indian celebrity. This is a brand new feather to his cap as he comes with a brand value of $144 million. In 2018, he was in the second number, but he got lucky this year with as many as 24 brand endorsements.
The King Khan Ranks Second
This too was a shocker. Shah Rukh Khan follows Virat Kohli, with a brand value of $106 million. There are rumours going around that his movie When Harry Met Sejal may have pulled him down a bit, but then again, he continues to rule over our hearts anyway.
Deepika Padukone – The Best Bride Ever
We are more than just proud to have a woman at number three in the list. Deepika Padukone had as many as twenty one brand endorsements till November 2018. Her fantastic film, Padmavat, has had a lot to with the uplifting of her career, and we are sure that Deepika, with a brand value of $93 million, will have a long way to go.
The Padman Steals The Show
The very own Khiladi of Bollywood, Akshay Kumar, is on number 4 with a brand value of $47 million. His career definitely is on a roll and he has shown us that with true talent, age is just a number in Bollywood. He was in the thirteenth spot in 2016, and he has risen up considerably in the past few years.
The Gully Boy Is Indeed A Rockstar
Ranveer Singh ranks number five in the list of most valuable Indian celebrities. He is worth $42 million. Last year he was positioned at number seven in the same list, and his work and endorsements have brought him this far, with a very promising future ahead.
The list features other celebrities like Salman Khan, Hrithik Roshan, the legendary actor, Amitabh Bachchan, and Alia Bhatt as well.
