Back in August, Google started kicking profiles with fakes names off of its social network and started verifying public figures. Celebrities like Ashton Kutcher, Britney Spears and Paris Hilton all have verified profiles on the social network. Now, Shahrukh Khan has joined the ranks of these celebrities and has become the first Indian celebrity to be verified on Google+. What this also means, is that since Shahrukh Khan's verification, Google+ has actively removed the vast number of fake Shahrukh Khan profiles listed on the social network.

This verification system helps make sure that fans 'like' the correct versions of their favourite celebrities online. Shahrukh Khan gets many search queries on Google and what's interesting, is that a vast number of queries for Shahrukh Khan on Google come from countries outside India like Germany, Finland, Malaysia and some Middle Eastern countries. The actor seems pretty active on the social networks and if you're a huge fan of the King Khan, you probably already follow him on Twitter. For those who want to be more in tune with the social network-ally active superstar, his Twitter account is @iamsrk. And now you can add him on Google+ and breathe easy that it is actually him and not an imposter.
