Salman Khan has more followers than Shah Rukh Khan on Facebook, but there is a twist

Salman Khan has more fans than Shah Rukh Khan on Facebook. Will Jab Harry Met Sejal work wonders for King Khan?

Shah Rukh Khan is gearing up for Jab Harry Met Sejal release on August 4. It is the second release for the 51-year-old actor this year, after Raees, released in Januaryturned out to be an average grosser. Meanwhile, his BFF Salman Khan is busy shooting for Tiger Zinda Hai which is scheduled to release on December 22. Comparisons are inevitable between the A-listers and their releases, but who do you think is more popular on Facebook right now?

According to Facebook data analysis website Social Bakers, at present, Salman boasts of a total of 35.32 million fans as compared to Shah Rukh’s support base of 23.60 million followers. In June, he had performed well on Facebook in terms of popularity quotient despite his latest release Tubelight’s disappointing performance at the Box Office.

But it turns out having a huge fan base is not the sole criteria for your popularity on Facebook. It is important that the celebrities continue to amass more supporters with a strong presence. Despite the Dabangg actor having more fans than his Karan Arjun co-star, Salman Khan’s domination has been increasingly challenged by Shah Rukh Khan both in terms of audience growth and interactions.
