    The latest in the league was Miss World Aishwarya Rai Bachchan who seemed to be quite inspired by him. The actress marked her Instagram debut choosing to follow the footsteps of Aamir Khan.

    Earlier, Farhan Akhtar who is quite active on his Instagram also was seen following the similar pattern of uploading a 9 grid post. The actor had posted back to back 3 grid posts in a short span of time.

    Earlier while speaking about his character in the film, he had said, "Thugs of Hindostan is a big action-adventure film. There's no message in that." He added, "I'm playing a character who cannot be trusted at all - [so it's the] very opposite of Dangal ... He's a very slippery character. He has no scruples at all - for money he can sell his mother out. He's like that. But [the character] is a very entertaining guy. So it's a very entertaining kind of a film. No message this time. Just have a good time."
