IBNS-CMEDIA: It has been one year since Bollywood actress Zeenat Aman made her Instagram debut and on Sunday she celebrated the completion of her first-year journey on the social media platform by posting two images and a post describing her voyage so far.

She wrote: ” People presume that transformative experiences are the prerogative of the young. My experience tells me otherwise.”

“365 days ago my kids cajoled me into uploading my first Instagram post. That little leap of faith forced me to confront my deep tech trepidations and even deeper need for privacy. Then it gifted me a transformative year,” she said.

” It showed me the possibilities of being true to my self, publicly. No agents, no managers, no bought followers – just the kids and I winging it!” she wrote.

“Oh, and what kids they are. If you wonder how I navigate Instagram or know the latest lingo, the answer lies with my informal little band of millennials,” the actress wrote.

Thanking her team, she said: “There is lovely, gentle @tanya.agarwall_ who photographs me with ease, thoughtful @_pratikshanair_ who makes up my face exactly as I like, and quiet @makeupnhairbyankita who fixes my hair. Then there are @zanuski and @carapiranha , who have held my hand every step of the way.
