After a lot of waiting, the day has finally come. The very popular actress, Aishwarya Rai has officially made her debut on the photo-video sharing app, Instagram. The actress joined the social media bandwagon by the username ‘aishwaryaraibachchan_arb’ earlier on Friday.
Now, what’s surprising is that the actress has not yet shared a single picture on her Instagram handle yet.
However, when we came across a few pictures of Aish with daughter Aaradhya from the Mumbai airport, before heading to Cannes Film Festival, we understood that the ‘Guru’ actress might be on her flight to France which is why she hasn’t posted any pictures yet.
Looks like the actress will only post her first picture after making her appearance at the Cannes Film Festival 2018. And we are already thrilled to watch her slay like a queen.
It was only at late Thursday night that the actress left for Cannes with Aaradhya. If reports are to be believed, this would be her 17th appearance at the popular film festival. The actress will walk the red carpet on May 12 and May 13.
Coming back to Aishwarya’s Instagram debut, a source close to Aishwarya earlier revealed the reason why she chose to have an official Instagram handle. Talking to a leading web portal, the source informed, “Ash has a huge fan base on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Her fans have been waiting for her to be on social media for a long time. It’s due to constant requests from her well-wishers, admirers and fans from all around the globe that she opted to start an official handle to keep them abreast of her life and projects, etc.”
The source further added, “Ash’s closest buddies from the industry, which include Karan Johar, Manish Malhotra and others, have been telling her to join social media. Even her team persuaded her a lot. Before her 17th Cannes appearance, the L’Oréal team also discussed this with her. Finally, she decided to go ahead.”
Earlier, when Aish wasn’t really too keen on making it to social media, she had said in an interview, “I think you should use it for its strength and not get drowned in it for its capacity to isolate as well as and make you just an individual and cease to be a people’s person.”
However, it was only in last year when the actress officially announced that she will join social media. She had said, “The time has come for me to join social media.”
And guess what, the time has finally come!
