Everyone loves to take selfies. Okay, maybe not everyone, but most of us do. And you know who really loves selfies? Celebrities! Why wouldn’t they? They live fabulous lives and showing off comes naturally to a celeb. Thus, selfies, for them, are mankind’s greatest invention since Louboutins. Social feeds imply that celebs take selfies all the time – when they wake up in the morning, when they eat, when they hang out with friends, sometimes, even in the bathtub. Some of these selfies have known to break the Internet. Some of the most liked Instagram pictures are selfies. But there are nine kinds of selfies every celebrity is guilty of taking, especially in Bollywood. Take a look:
Pre-Red Carpet selfie
Going to a celebrity event? But first, let me take a selfie! Celebs have known to reveal their Red Carpet looks on Instagram before the event, adding to the hype of the event. These selfies include the make-up selfie, glam squad selfie, complete look selfie, and a shoutout to the designer/brand selfie.
Snapchat filter selfie
Snapchat filters are not limited to Snapchat. Celebs have been known to save their selfies with Snapchat’s quirky filters and post them on Instagram too. Every time there’s a new filter on Snapchat, a celebrity has tried and tested it. Some celebs even have their favorite filters.
Celebs love hanging out with other celebs. What they love even more is bragging about their friendships. The term squad was coined after Taylor Swift and her famous group of friends, but in Bollywood too, many such squads exist. And they love taking selfies (or groupies).
A celebrity is likely to take a vacation to some exotic destination and relax in style. With the growth of social media, celebs have begun to share pictures of their vacations, making the rest of the world jealous. After all, if you’re going to take the effort to go all the way to Europe, ek selfie toh banta hai!
Celebs are not just entitled humans, they work hard to get where they are. Every celeb loves to remind us of this fact. And to make their point clearer, they share images of their hard work, which mostly happens in the gym. Every celeb has a gym selfie, and this is becoming a rage among regular folk too.
How to make an already gorgeous-looking celeb look even cuter? The pet quotient! Almost every celeb has a pet, whom they show off on social media. Be it cats, dogs, birds, horses, even pigs, celebs love taking pictures with their pet animals. And we can’t help but go aww over these selfies.
My fanbase strongest! Competing celebs are known to post selfies with fans. Which fan wouldn’t love to feature on their superstar’s Instagram page? Be it SRKians or Bhailevers, many have appeared on their heroes’ social accounts because celebs love taking selfies with fans. The more, the better!
Selfies with co-actors
Celebs post many pictures promoting their upcoming movies. These include film posters, trailer breaks, set pictures, shoot wrap-ups and PR appearances. But the pictures that work the most with fans is the selfie they take with their co-stars. Happy couples in reel and real life!
Family get-together selfie
If you come from a filmy family, you’ve got to show it! Family get-togethers are common among large Bollywood families, be it for birthdays, weddings, or festivals. And to commemorate this day, there’s always a selfie that goes up on Instagram. So many celebs under one roof!
