On Friday, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan who has always been absent from social media, made her Instgram debut. Despite husband Abhishek Bachchan and father-in-law’s eminent social media presence, Aish had no time for it. After years of cajoling by fans, the former Miss World has finally given her nod to the social media. She started her Instagram account just before she walks the Cannes red carpet again this year.
As a first, she posted a photo grid of her daughter Aaradhya from the time when she was born. The baby girl and mother Aishwarya Rai Bachchan are in silhouettes. In the caption, she wrote, “And I was born...again.”
Husband Abhishek Bachchan was the one among the firsts to comment on the picture. He wrote, “How about a photo credit Mrs. B?”
Superstar Aamir Khan also used a photo grid of his son Azad as his first Instagram post. However, he deleted the collage later. Now the actor has only 1 Instagram which is of Alia Bhatt and himself from a social event by Paani Foundation. The actor now enjoys 846,000 followers on Instagram with only one picture. Seems like the Thugs Of Hindostan actor is not very active on the social media.
Talking about Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s Instagram debut, it’s been an underwhelming affair. Not much excitement prevailed after her Instagram profile went official. The first reason is the absence of ‘blue tick’ on her handle, which makes many of the netizen suspicious about the account’s authenticity. Secondly, photo grids are quite spamming for the followers. This might have also led to some unfollows, suspecting that the account is fake.
Also, the username of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s Instagram profile is complicated. Typing ‘Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’ in the search would render many other fan pages and the original account ranks fourth in the search result.
On Friday, her reps shared the screenshot of her official account on Instagram.
Among the Bollywood celebrities, her husband Abhishek Bachchan and newlywed Sonam Kapoor follows her account.
