After Twitter and Facebook, Amitabh Bachchan set to take Instagram by storm
Not all stars have taken a keen interest in social media as many believe that they should keep up the mystery but Amitabh Bachchan is not one of them. At 70, he is one of the most followed and active social media public personality - and has not faded in the sidelines like his co-stars of the 60s and 70s.

Not only films and television, but keeping up with the present times, he is getting more and more technology savvy. Taking another leap in this direction, he has started his own Instagram account after exploring Twitter and Facebook. Talking about his new account, the actor said that it is always wonderful to be able to reach out to his well-wishers.

Posting his first set of observations on Instagram, Amitabh Bachchan said, “Now it’s time for a whole new graphic medium – Instagram, where I can tell my stories through pictures! The endeavor is to communicate and keep in touch with as many as possible in as many different ways and mediums. So connect with me on Instagram, and be privy to some pictures of me, some by me! Aah, the camera, the lens, the filters, the colors, the effects… Let’s spin some magic instantly!

Social media is not new to the number game and in an interview Priyanka Chopra admitted that she is very competitive when it comes to social media ranking. Initially, she was the most followed Bollywood celebrity on various platforms but she was replaced by Amitabh Bachchan and SRK. PC, who too is on Instagram, now faces stiff competition as Senior Bachchan, too, can get really competitive especially on social media. Piggy Chops is followed a lot on Instagram but now that Bachchan has landed up on the same platform, some of the fan following for Bollywood stars will now be shared for sure!

Very different from Facebook, Instagram follows a pictorial model. This 100 million user platform each day has 32 million pictures posted on it. AB is sure to get used to it as he has been practicing by uploading pictures on Facebook for quite some time now. Being a self-claimed OCD, he was also the star who started numbering his tweets and Facebook updates. Currently, he has 877 followers on Instagram, and his following is growing by every passing hour to view the 11 pictures that he has shared with everyone.
