Neha Kakkar has ascended to Forbes Asia’s 100 Digital Stars 2020 list – among other Bollywood megastars including Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan, Akshay Kumar, Alia Bhatt, Jacqueline Fernandez and more.
The Indian Idol judge and singer Neha Kakkar is celebrating her feature on Forbes Asia’s 100 Digital Stars 2020, as one of 12 Indians on the list.
Forbes Asia outlines that their inaugural 100 Digital Stars list highlights 100 singers, bands, and film and TV stars from across the Asia-Pacific region who have taken the digital world by storm. “With their powerful social media presence, the trailblazers who made the list have garnered millions of loyal followers across popular platforms, making them as famous online as they are on stage and screen.”
The list, which is unranked, “comes at an exceptional time,” states Forbes Asia. It recognises that because majority of the region’s population is spending time isolated at home, people are relying on their screens for communication and entertainment.
The publication says it has “given special focus to celebrities who, despite cancelled physical events and activities, managed to remain active and relevant, largely by using social media to interact with their fans, raise awareness and inspire optimism.” Adding that “many also used their influence to help worthy causes, especially those with a Covid-19 focus.
Kakkar thanked her fans for all the love and support they have showered her with that has made her reached the upper echelons.
Taking to Instagram, she wrote, “Proud Proud
Proud of myself 🥰🥰🥰🥰
You know guys There were only 12 Indians in the list including Amitabh Bachan Sir, Shahrukh Sir and I’m one of them ♥️💪🏼 Thank you god! Thanks to each one of YOU, Thanks to my NeHearts 🤗🙏🏼
On Twitter, the Bollywood news conduit @SpotboyE echoed the achievement, to which Kakkar quoted in appreciation with two humble emojis.
