'King Khan' was running ahead of the Bollywood lot but his Don co-star soon caught up with him. Priyanka is now on top with 652,822 followers while SRK's followers are 649,515.
Priyanka follows 95 people on twitter including Big B, Shah Rukh and other industry friends while 12810 people have listed her on the microblogging website, which has become home to virtually every Bollywood star.
Interestingly, when it comes to Bollywood actress, no one is even near to Priyanka. Preity Zinta is the second female star from Bollywood to have the biggest fan following but her number is only half of Priyanka's admirers on twitter.
Zinta has about 390,080 followers while Om Shanti Om star Deepika Padukone is third with 85,226 fans.
Salman Khan, who has been in the eye storm for his comments on 26/11, is third after Shah Rukh. The actor may have decided to quit twitter following the controversy but that has also seen an increase in his followers.
Big B is fourth in the list with 417,558 followers but the number is likely to go up as the megastar is a new entrant to the world of Twitter.
