Priyanka Chopra Jonas is paid Rs. 3 crore for every promotional post she makes on Instagram, according to the Instagram Hopper Richlist for 2021. The Bollywood superstar who has since left for the United States of America earned 27th place in the list this year.
Priyanka Chopra landed 19th last year on the list that ranks celebrities each year based on the money they receive for each promotional post on Instagram. Great footballer Cristiano Ronaldo tops the Rs. 11 crore list per promotional post on the social media platform.
Besides the actress, cricketer Virat Kohli was the only other Indian on the list. The captain of the Indian cricket team was placed in 19th place with Rs. 5 crore payment for promotional messages.
Argentine soccer legend Lionel Messi was in 7th place with him charging Rs. 8.7 crore for each promotional post. Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson (2nd), Ariana Grande (3rd), Kylie Jenner (4th), Selena Gomez (5th) and Kim Kardashian (6th).
Beyonce (8th), Justin Bieber (9th) and Barcelona star Neymar (16th) are also on the list.
Recently, celebrity Rihanna was on the docks after tweeting “why aren’t we talking about this” to garner support for the “farmer protests”. She landed in a huge controversy because of it. There was suspicion that Rihanna made the tweet from her account instead of payment. According to the listing, Rihanna herself charges Rs. 4.5 crore for each promotional post on the platform.
In case anyone wants Priyanka Chopra or Virat Kohli to post in support of their campaign on Instagram, well, now they know how much money they’ll need to flush out.
