Saif Ali Khan reveals he is on Instagram, says he uses one of his character’s names

Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan is the only Bollywood couple who is officially not on social media. At a time when almost every B-Town celebrity is happy connecting with their fans via social media, Saif and Kareena have mostly stayed away from it. But it was only recently that Saif Ali Khan revealed that he has an Instagram account under the name of one of his film characters.

The 48-year-old actor made the big revelation on Arbaaz Khan’s chat show Pinch. The Omkara actor was asked about the couple’s absence from social media. To which, Saif Ali Khan replied, “Kareena is not on social media? I see her on it all the time. I don’t know if it is khufia (secret) but she is aware. So we watch TV in the evenings after work, after Taimur has gone to sleep. So I keep looking over and she is on it. Even I borrow her phone at times and I am quite aware also.”

When asked if Saif has created an account in order to see what is happening around. Saif said, “You need to create an account in order to follow Instagram. I named my one account after Shakun Kothari, a character I played in Baazaar.”

The Sacred Games actor also spilled the beans on his unavailability on social media.

“I don’t know how much it suits me. I feel when I get onto it, (I did get onto to see how it works). I spend too much time thinking what others are thinking and what people feel about this picture and what other people are doing. I don’t know if I enjoy that space. What I am not comfortable is that conversation – the constant give and take via comments. Some select people’s opinions are important. General public at large, it will a waste of energy at large trying to make everyone happy,” added Saif Ali Khan.

On the work front, Saif Ali Khan will soon begin shooting for Nitin Kakkar’s Jawani Deewani.
