Union Minister Smriti Irani has a reputation for being an Insta-star. And with her latest post, she has just proved why.
The newly sworn in Women and Child Minister who is also in charge of Textiles recently earned herself the moniker of “giant-slayer” after she managed to wrest Amethi, aGandhi bastion for four decades, in this Lok Sabha elections.
And now, settled in her cushy position as two-time union minister, it seems Irani has found the time to go back to her amazingly funny and relatable Instagram posts.
In her latest post, Irani seemingly took a dig at her own weight when she shared a “throwback” post on Instagram. In it, she can be seen sitting with BJP MP Darshana Jardosh, sharing a candid moment.
Using a popular Hindi song lyric as her caption, Irani wrote, "Kya se kya ho gaye dekhte dekhte”, meaning “look what we have become over time”. To further clarify that post was indeed a dig on her weight, the minister wrote, "When #thoughtfulthursday 'weighs' on you”.
This is the first of her classic, self-deprecating joke posts since her spectacular Lok Sabha victory and swearing in as part of the Modi 2.0 cabinet.
In fact, Irani often uses her Insta handle to give her over 5 lakh followers a peek into her life, and also to share witty memes and jokes, often at her own expense.
Even this post, which was added on Thursday, has nearly 55,000 likes in just four hours.
Reacting to the post, Bollywood actress Gul Panag commented, “Self deprecation at its humorous best”. Another fan, Radio City RJ Archana Pania, wrote, "Your sense of humour on yourself is sooooo endearing! But u look gorgeous no matter what body weight! Those eyes aglow & that face PERFECT!"
While Irani chose to make the photo about her weight, the post can also be seen as proof of Irani’s journey from being a junior BJP leader to an important member of the present government.
