Just when you think that 2018 couldn’t get any better for Indians, the Time Magazine included two Indians into its list of 100 Most Influential People for 2018.
Actress Deepika Padukone and Cricketer Virat Kohli have been included in the prestigious list which had previously featured names like Narendra Modi, Amitabh Bachchan, Sonia Gandhi, Priyanka Chopra, Sachin Tendulkar, former RBI governor Raghuram Rajan, Sania Mirza, Flipkart founders Binny Bansal and Sachin Bansal and activist Sunita Narain. Apart from Padukone and Kohli, other Indians who made it to the list include Ola co-founder Bhavish Aggarwal and Indian-American CEO of Microsoft, Satya Nadella.
Priyanka Chopra couldn’t contain her excitement to see her friends Deepika Padukone and Virat Kohli on the list and took to Twitter to express her joy. She tweeted:
