Hashtagging the post #tbt (throwback Thursday), Ms Irani says: "Take off from the paragliding capital of India Bir Billing... And then there might be some who wud (sic) be wondering 'Did she have to land!!!!'"
Since being shared, the post has collected over 5,800 views, more than 1,100 'likes' and several dozen comments. While many have posted comments on the video itself, some have written about the caption posted by Ms Irani.
"Are you kidding me? I would never be able to do this," says one Instagram user. "Brave," says another.
And talking a little more about Ms Irani's sense of humour, here's another hilarious post shared by her just yesterday. This one makes a rather funny connection between two extremely successful series Kyunki... Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thii and Game Of Thrones.
