Actress Deepika Padukone rocks a white top and bright silver pants. She completed the design with silver stilettoes and earrings with minimal make-up. The most recent pictures on social media caught the eye of her actor-husband Ranveer Singh, who called the actress a “good sindhi bahu”.


Bollywood actors Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra Jonas are among the ten celebrities who have the biggest number of fake followers or “bots” on Instagram.


At sixth place on the fake followers’ list, an enormous 48 per cent of Padukone’s followers are bots, consistent with an analysis from the Institute of Contemporary Music Performance (ICMP).


At tenth place, 46 per cent of Chopra Jonas’ Instagram followers are fake.


Padukone presently has 37.9 million followers on Instagram whereas Chopra Jonas has 43.6 million.
At the top is talk show host Ellen DeGeneres with 58 per cent of fake Instagram followers, followed by K-Pop band BTS with 48 per cent.
Kourtney Kardashian was third with 49 per cent, whereas Kim Kardashian West and Khloe Kardashian both had 44 per cent of fake followers on the Facebook-owned photo-sharing platform.


For Katy Perry, 53 per cent of her 83.6 million Instagram followers are reportedly fake.


Ariana Grande and Miley Cyrus also are ranked high for bots.


“We took numerous ‘most successful’ and ‘most followed’ to make our list of celebrities across acting, sport, music, and television personalities. We then filtered this by the quantity of followers to give ourselves a top 100 most followed list,” ICMP said in a statement.


“We then ran their Instagram and Twitter handles through IG Audit and Sparktoro’s fake Twitter follower’s tool to measure what proportion of their following was truly real,” it added.


As Instagram continues to grow, influencer marketing has emerged as a significant trend in 2019 that attained influencers the highest amount of cash for paid posts thus far.


Attaining the 19th spot, Chopra Jonas made it to the list at the side of Indian cricketer Virat Kohli who sits on the 23rdrank. Whereas Chopra Jonas charges $271,000 per post, Kohli charges $196,000.
