After Facebook and Twitter one more social networking site that succeeded in spreading its roots in India is Instagram. From early morning tea to late night parties, from their cute pets to their new dresses, from pouting selfies to crazy group photos, people are posting everything on Instagram.

Atlast, the queen of queens Deepika Padukone is on the top of our register, holding the record for an indian to be followed by highest number of people on Instagram. She recently reached the peak of 9 million followers and the counting is still on.


  1. Alia and Shraddha’s followers should not be compared as alia has started way later than SK. And compared to everyone out here she is most successful than what they could have done in 5 years. She has raised the bar. She’ll leave her contemporaries behind at this pace and shraddha parineeti should be alert.
