Indian cricket skipper Virat Kohli has topped the list of the most valuable celebrity brand in the country for the second year in a row, with an 18% increase in his brand value at USD 170.9 million in 2018, according to a report.

The cricketer endorsed 24 brands as of November 2018, the global valuation and corporate finance advisors Duff & Phelps said in its fourth edition of the report on India's most valuable celebrity brands on yesterday.

He is followed by Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone, who jumped a place higher from the last ranking, with a valuation of USD 102.5 million. She endorsed 21 brands as of Novemebr 2018.

The top two are the only celebrities with a valuation of over USD 100 million. The total value of the top 20 celebrity brands stands at USD 877 million, with the top 10 contributing more than 75% of the total value.

"The celebrity endorsement market in India has matured from vanilla endorsement deals to full-fledged partnerships through innovative routes such as equity deals and strategic partnerships... Millennial celebrities continue to be the first choice for brand endorsements as companies want to have a greater focus on the youth segment fuelled by demand in sectors such as e-commerce, retail, FMCG and smartphones, among others," Duff & Phelps managing director and Asia Pacific leader for valuation services Varun Gupta said.
