Virat Kohli is one name to reckon with in the cricketing fraternity and is probably the best batsman in the world right now. He is one cricketer who is always making news on the internet; about his growing number of centuries, with his girlfriend Anushka Sharma and now it’s because of the amount of money he makes through his social media promotional posts. Well it’s not surprising because this cricketer is the captain of the Indian Cricket Team and they are winning every series they are playing off-late.
Recently he posted a picture of him, sitting in a car with a particular brand of headphones on and, it is going to make you feel really small if we tell you how much he earned with that. This particular post made him whooping ₹3.25 cr and yes it is going to give you goals and how. Imagine posting a morning selfie, just like this and wonder about that making you a few crores richer. Sounds insane right? But just giving you all a reality check, this Indian skipper has 16.7 mn followers on Instagram.
The only sportsperson earning this much with such small promotional posts across social media profiles is Portuguese footballer Cristiano Ronaldo. This disproportionate fee is hardly surprising considering the recent Forbes list of top sports personalities that apparently placed Kohli above super athletes like Stephen Curry, Lionel Messi and Rory Mcllroy.
