Star Indian cricketer Virat Kohli gets $120,000 (Rs. 83 lakh) for every sponsored Instagram post, HopperHQ.com, a scheduling tool of the photo-sharing app revealed.
The skipper of Indian cricket team was ranked 17th on this Instagram rich list and trumped stars like American basketball player Stephen Curry and boxing legend Floyd Mayweather.
Unsurprisingly, model Kylie Jenner topped the list. She charges a whopping $1 million for every sponsored post.
The Instagram profile of Kohli is just what one would have imagined it to be. He posts videos and photos of his work out session and random posts about his life in general.
But the posts with wife Anushka Sharma get a lot of attention, and rightly so. The pictures speak volumes of their love.
Kohli's Instagram is, undoubtedly, a treat for his fans.

While Kohli has 23.2 million followers, the leader of the sportsmen brigade, Cristiano Ronaldo has 136.9 million followers and charges $750,000 (Rs. 5.12 cr) for each sponsored post.
Brazil's Neymar took the second position among sportsmen as he charges $600,000 (Rs. 4.21 crore) per post.
Notably, no other Indian celebrity pipped Kohli on the list, which is another achievement.
