While Salman Khan has been dominating the Box Office, with Blockbusters like Bajrangi Bhaijaan and Sultan, one after the other, it is Shah Rukh Khan who has always been ahead in the race of followers on Twitter.
However, Salman has taken over SRK on a different social media platform, where he is leading by around 2.3 million followers. Yes! Salman has managed to beat Shah Rukh on Instagram where he has 6.5 million followers, whereas Shah Rukh on the other hand, has 4.2 million followers on the said platform.
While Salman Khan made his debut on Instagram towards the end of the year 2014, Shah Rukh Khan debuted on the photo sharing site by the end of the year 2013.
