Move over Kat, Smriti is the newest in the Instagram block Image: Instagram
If you thought Katrina Kaif's Instagram debut was big, here's Smriti Irani to steal her thunder. Sharing a throwback picture from her heydays, she wrote, “Guess who's on Insta now 😋#tbt #goodolddays,” to announce her arrival on the photo-sharing site.
Soon after, she shared another nostalgic click from her Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi days, where she was photographed with the Balaji head honcho, Ekta Kapoor, and her arch rival Sakshi Tanwar, aka Parvati of Kahaani Ghar Ghar Ki. Seems it was bestie Ekta who pestered the former actor and current minister to join Instagram, especially after the trio's snap from Delhi went viral on social media. So, to show her gratitude for introducing her on this journey, Smriti wrote, “@ektaravikapoor Thanks for pestering me to do this 🙏🏼🙏🏼 Looks like a fun journey ahead 😊#tbt #thosewerethedays.”
Ekta went a step ahead and welcomed Smriti on the platform with another throwback picture of the trio, and wrote, “Let's welcome my friend! A force to recon with! Her meteoric rise stunned many but wat stuns me more is how rooted she is! Finally on instagram let's welcome tulsi ! @smritiiraniofficial!”
Though Smriti has a very strong presence on Twitter, commenting on more serious issues, this Instagram account promises to show a more informal and lighter side of the politician. Going by the pictures she's shared so far, we are expecting to catch glimpses of her personal life, too, on this platform now.
