After taking the lion’s share of big screen, actors Shah Rukh Khan and Priyanka Chopra have also been declared the King and Queen of Social Media or the Virtual World – as announced in the Social Media Film Awards 2015 by BollywoodLife.com.
The online portal awarded the superstars with the title to appreciate their endeavour to stay connected with their fans through social media. A poll was conducted last month on the digital platform to get the results and winners of 16 categories. The poll saw an overwhelming response with over 13 lakh votes from India and even Russia, Britain and the US.
Dedicating the award to all his fans, Shah Rukh said, “There are so many people around the world who have given me love and support for many years. Earlier, letters and cards used to be the only way of communicating and thanking them. Now, social media has made life easier. I can be closer to all my fans – thank them, hear them out and chat with them.”
Priyanka was touched by the accolade and said “I always wanted to be a queen. When I won Miss World, I pretended I was a queen. So winning this award really made me feel like one. Thank you everyone who voted.”
New medium of communication brings out new award categories. Great going!
