Finally Katrina Kaif has joined Instagram. The ever-so-private actress has kept away from social media for years (she made her Bollywood debut in 2003), but now it seems she is finally ready to get up and close with her fans. Last year on her birthday she joined Facebook and two days back she made her Instagram debut, amassing one million followers in the first 40 hours. That’s the power of India’s barbie doll, a name she’s been given by the media.
Her friends from the industry thronged in to welcome the star. From mentor Salman Khan to Alia Bhatt, they poured in their wishes and urged their fans to show some love to the actress.
Alia Bhatt, who befriended the star during the Dream Tour last year, and calls her one of her good friends in the industry, took to Instagram to welcome the star.
Bhatt reposted Katrina’s Instagram photo.
According to Varun Dhawan Katrina has made Instagram insta hot. Agree?
Akshay Kumar and Katrina have starred in several films together, the first being Namastey London in 2007, which was a massive hit and gave the actress a big breakthrough in the industry.
Superstar Salman Khan, Katrina’s Bollywood godman and ex-boyfriend, was the first one to welcome her on the site.
Director and producer Karan Johar too joined in welcoming Miss Kaif on Instagram.
Sidharth Malhotra, who co-starred with the actress in Baar Baar Dekho last year, asked his followers to drop their kaala Chashma and follow the actress.
