Kohli and Sharma together invested Rs 2.5 crore in the startup, as per the filings. The funding by the two celebrities is part of the larger round of $84 million that the company had last month.
In January, Digit Insurance announced that it received approval from the Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority of India (Irdai) to raise $84 million from three growth equity investors -- A91 Partners, Faering Capital and TVS Capital.
Digit is a new-age general insurance company started by Kamesh Goyal and backed by Canada-based Fairfax Group. The company previously raised two rounds of funding amounting to $140 million.
The company claims that within 2 years of operation, it now serves more than 5 million customers and has achieved close to $300 million of annualised premium.
