Kajol has always remained away from the social media craze; however, now, she has finally joined the bandwagon. In a recent interview to Filmfare, the Helicopter Eela actress revealed that it was her daughter Nysa who made her join Instagram. She revealed, "I guess, my fans can know me a little better through my social media platforms. Yet, there's a lot of stuff that I don't talk about. But whatever I'd like you to know about me is there. I enjoy it up to a point. There are many things that are secret to me. I keep a cap on those. It's my choice to maintain my privacy. Social media is meant to push you as a brand, meant to push your movies."
'Nysa Asked Me To Join Instagram'
"My daughter (Nysa) was the first to ask me to get on Instagram. I enjoy Instagram, I must say that. But I'm not one of those people who will put up something after every two minutes. I do post pictures about where I am and what I'm doing. You can't go over the top with it."
