From posting early-morning selfies with their exotic cats to posing in breathtakingly-expensive designer clothes, these Bollywood celebrities live a life that the millions of ordinary Indians who follow them can only aspire to.

While Alia Bhatt and Deepika Padukone, who have 3 million followers each on Instagram, use the platform like the pros they are, actors Amitabh Bachchan and Salman Khan, stars on Twitter, are still figuring out the photo-sharing website.

Bachchan is the 58th most followed person in the world on Twitter, followed by Shah Rukh Khan, who's on number 69.

Endless hashtags that followers replicate in their own feeds, chats with industry colleagues that are immediately picked up by media and melancholy filters make up the world of Indian stars on Instagram.

Here's a list of the 14 most-followed:
