Bollywood actor Amitabh Bachchan hit a new record Thursday on his Facebook page by garnering over 15 million fans. Big B, thanked his fans for their love and support, with a tweet. The actor is very active on social media sites.
Amitabh Bachchan is yet to break the record of Salman Khan, who has the highest Facebook fan following in Bollywood along with 19,143,677 likes and he has fewer Twitter followers. While garnering 15 million Facebook likes is no mean feat, Amitabh Bachchan is still quite far from the most-liked celebrity on Facebook – Shakira – who in July after the close of the Fifa World Cup hit a new landmark of 100 million likes, becoming the first individual to do so.
Shakira, who recently performed at the closing ceremony of the 2014 Brazil World Cup, stands ahead of rivals Eminem and Rihanna, who have amassed 91.9 million and 89 million likes respectively. Shakira was particularly active on the social media during the World Cup, sharing a host of photos from behind the scenes.
