New Delhi: 


  1. Aamir Khan has over 6 lakh followers
  2. Aamir's recent post features him with a group of school students
  3. According to his team, 'Aamir is changing the face of Instagram'
Aamir Khan is late to the social media party and seems to be in need of some help. Although he doesn't think so - 'marketing genius Aamir is changing the face of Instagram,' according to his team. The 53-year-old actor is a man of few tweets, posting only rarely and never without a reason or occasion. In comparison, when you consider that he's been on Twitter since 2009, he's far more voluble on Instagram - three posts in 15 days, ever since he joined the photo-sharing platform on the eve of his birthday this month. Three posts, all of them collages, - but if you look at Aamir's Instagram account, there's just one. Before you think he hasn't figured out how to upload a fresh collage without replacing the last one, let's be clear that this is intentional. Per his team, Aamir has done away with the archiving feature and this, apparently, is a masterstroke. But it makes Aamir Khan's newly minted Instagram disappointingly sparse - disappointing, at least, to the six lakh who follow him.

Aamir's new Instagram collage is from Zakhangaon village, one of his stops while touring drought-affected parts of Maharashtra with his Paani Foundation team. The picture shows the actor surrounded by smiling local children: "The kids of Zakhangaon village can bring a smile to anyone's face," Aamir captioned his post.

"Can somebody teach Aamir Khan to post pictures and use Instagram," reads one comment on Aamir's post. That's great suggestion so we've made a list of five celebrities killing it on Instagram for Aamir to take lessons from. And it's list fairly close to home - all five are or have been his co-stars.

Katrina Kaif

First up is Katrina Kaif, Aamir Khan's Thugs Of Hindostan and Dhoom 3 co-star. Katrina is also relatively new to Instagram - she joined last year - but she's maxing it with every post. Katrina has 9.7 million followers and constantly posts pictures from her vacations, workout sessions, dance rehearsals and has now come up with this unique idea of wishing her friends from Bollywood.

In fact, Aamir Khan has featured in some of Katrina's posts.

Thugs my dearest aamir and @fatimasanashaikh

Anushka Sharma

Next on the list is Aamir Khan's PK co-star Anushka Sharma. With 627 posts and 16.5 million followers, Anushka's Instagram account is every sort of fun. Anushka also makes the best use of social media to promote her films and to make personal and professional announcements. Sometimes, she strategically posts pictures of herself and husband Virat Kohli.

Last year, she conducted an innovative marketing campaign for her film Phillauri using the theme 'Shashi was here.'

Yes, Anushka too has posted collages on Instagram - for instance, in aid of her film Pari - but she chooses the moment so as to maximise impact.

Amitabh Bachchan

Aamir's Thugs Of Hindostan co-star Amitabh Bachchan is 75 but more social media savvy than many half his age. He often uses his Instagram account to post pictures of his family members and sometimes share throwback photos. He follows no one but 8.1 million people follow him. For good reason.

.... home where the love is ..

Aamir, we also wish to see some pictures like this.

Dangal stars Fatima Sana Shaikh and Sanya Malhotra

They played Aamir's daughters in Dangal and, quite likely, consider him as frustratingly parent-like in terms of using social media tech as many of us do our own dads. If they don't, they should. Fatima is also one of the Thugs Of Hindostan cast.

Happy walla birthday tauji

Meanwhile, this was Aamir's second collage, which has been replaced by the new one, featuring him and Azad in an adorable father-son moment (Their dog was also a part of the frame).

Dear Aamir Khan, put down that laptop/tablet/phone and back slowly away from Instagram. Now consult your co-stars. Then post. Looking forward.
