Aishwarya Rai was reportedly very angry because of the poor response she received to her Instagram page last week. Yes, this was after the popular actor, known to be very private, finally made a debut on Instagram.
A report by Pinkvilla said that Aishwarya had given grief to her PR team for her Instagram debut failure because she was hoping to add quite a lot of followers in no time. She reportedly blasted her team for their inability to get a blue tick (sign of a verified account) despite her status as a global celebrity. She was also worried that her fans may mistake it as being yet another fans’ account.
Perhaps this was the reason why even husband Abhishek had taken to his Instagram page urging his fans to follow Aishwarya’s page. He wrote, “Throwback to Cannes in 2007 shortly after our marriage. And now the Mrs. is on Instagram too @aishwaryaraibachchan_arb show the love guys. #MrsB (sic). ”
“Aishwarya is upset with the way her social media debut happened. This is not what she expected. In 6 hours her profile has not even crossed 20,000 followers, which is very unlikely, given her popularity. She is also upset that there is no blue tick on her profile, making people wonder about the authenticity of the profile,” the website reported.
However, a day later, the number of Aishwarya’s followers on Instagram has increased to nearly 4,00,000. The actor is currently in Cannes, where she has been a regular. What she wears during the festival is often a great topic of discussion in national and international media. This time around for her first appearance, the former Miss World went for filipino designer Micheal Cinco. Looking unmistakably fetching in the peacock motif dress with a long trail; the fashion police seemed pleased with her appearance. What seemed all the more adorable was Aishwariya Rai Bachchan junior; she walked hand in hand in her own red ensemble while her mother got ready for the red carpet.
This was the bollywood actor’s 17th appearance at the Cannnes Film festival.
Earlier that day, Aishwariya wore a bright sequined breezy dress heavily bedecked with stones and glitter. The base satin-silk teal fabric brought out the color of the beauty queens eyes. The veteran loreal brand ambassador nailed it in her Manish Arora ensemble.
A late bloomer on the social media scene, the former beauty queen chose instagram as her debut social medium on friday. She chose to tease her fans with an image of her Manish Arora dress.
