Kohli endorses approx 17 brands (American Tourister, Audi, Boost, Colgate-Palmolive, Gillette, Gionee, Herbalife, MRF, Manyavar, New Era, Puma, Punjab National Bank, Tissot, Uber, Vicks, MPL, and one more).

Kohli has been seen quite often promoting Uber during the World Cup and MRF is automatically endorsed whenever he plays cricket as his bat has an MRF sticker on it. He has also seen doing an endorsement for Manyavar with his wife Anushka Sharma, a Bollywood superstar.

The couple married a year ago and are the most earning celebrity couples.
