Akshay Kumar has proved that there can be just one Khiladi, and that’s him *put on sunglasses*. No seriously, he’s the coolest because he’s been ranked 25 in the prestigious list of 50 Most Popular Celebrities on Twitter! Hollywood heartthrob Leonardo DiCaprio (who seems to be REALLY enjoying summer these days) topped this list!
Other celebrities who have made it to the coveted list include Paulo Coelho, Kevin Spacey and Stephen Fry. Apart from Akshay, A.R. Rahman was the only other Indian celebrity who ranked in this list published in TIME Magazine. On Twitter, Akshay goes beyond just self- promotion and publicity of his films. He has been actively promoting sportsmen, health and fitness and self defence training on a regular basis.
What is even more interesting is that unlike many other celebrities, Akshay keeps his personal life completely off limits and yet due to his sheer popularity and the love his fans have for him, Akshay has been voted into this powerful list of some Twitter lovin’!
Looks like, worldwide, people prefer the genuine Akshay Kumar persona rather than a PR overdrive on social media! We guess superstars like him, Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan and Aamir Khan don’t need to ride on the Twitter bandwagon for random publicity! They actually use the social networking site to connect with their fans and thats why the country loves them :)
