Take a look at Agastya Nanda’s first Instagram post:
Earlier in a chat with NDTV, Agastya had talked about his prolonged absence from socila media. He said, “So, I did have a social media account. And I used to get really stressed. What should I post, what filter, what angle, jawline, I used to do all this. And then, I was like you know what, scrap it. I am gonna do some cool artsy thing, and I am not artsy, I am very not. So, I did some cool collage, and I posted it.” Talking about the moment he made his Instagram account public, Agastya added, “So, I thought this is my big reveal, I have arrived. I am going to make a public account and everyone is gonna love me and follow me. But people started unfollowing me. So I had around 800 followers when I was private. I made it public, I reached 20,000. And the day after, I was at 500. So, I was like, how did that even happen? So, now I avoid it. Honestly, that’s best if I stay away.”
Agastya Nanda had earlier confessed that he has a “fake account” on Instagram and he loves watching Reels.
