Its Mr Perfectionist Aamir Khan’s birthday 53rd birthday today and the superstar has finally joined Instagram. The verified Instagram account’s follower count shot up to over 247k and counting. The birthday man also posted a split grid of his mom as the debut post. The Dangal star already enjoys a massive social media following through Facebook and Twitter, and his decision to join the photo-sharing app will definitely make his fans across the globe happy. At the moment, Aamir has over 23 million followers on Twitter and his Facebook page is liked by 15 million people.
Back in 2014, the rumour of Aamir Khan joining Instagram had gone viral. Eventually, the star had to tweet out a request to his fans to be cautious of the fake account. It seems that Aamir’s decision to join Instagram comes as a promotional tool for his upcoming period heist drama Thugs Of Hindostan. The actor has also kept a picture of his look from the movie as his profile picture on Instagram.
Mr Perfectionist Aamir Khan is currently shooting for Vijay Krishna Acharya's Thugs Of Hindostan in Jodhpur and will reportedly be having a working birthday. Produced by Aditya Chopra's Yash Raj Films, this film marks his second collaboration with Acharya after the 2013 blockbuster action thriller Dhoom 3, which also starred Kaif. Thugs Of Hindostan, which also stars Amitabh Bachchan, Katrina Kaif, Fatima Sana Shaikh and Ronit Roy is slated to release this Diwali.
Guys, I am not on Instagram. Its obviously some fake account.
