Celebs like Manish Malhotra, Mohit Rai, Nilofer Qureshi and Tanya Ghavri, who are very close to Kareena, were among the first to follow the star.

Kareena had vaguely hinted at the idea of starting a social media account in an interview with News18 in January. She said, “I know my fan clubs also have some 6-7 million followers. There are lots of fans who are running them. I can say that there'll be an official page which I will do at some point. But it will be run by somebody. It will only officially be about my work and will have updates about my films, but no personal stuff. It'll have one or two personal pictures from our family holiday, but nothing more than that. Saif (Ali Khan) and I always give out one picture from our family holiday anyway.”
