"Birthdays are about doing something fun and interesting. This year I've decided to join Instagram, something I've been contemplating for a while now," Parineeti said in a statement.

After joining the celebrity bandwagon on Instagram, the actress went a step further and chose a collage of fan's selfies to be the first image on her account instead of her photograph with a caption that read "As promised!! You all and me :) #bday".

She took to Twitter on October 15 to share the news and asked her fans to submit their selfies in association with Fluence, a celebrity digital network.

She also posted a series of tweets urging her fans to submit wacky selfies.

In one of her Twitter posts on October 17, she wrote "My 1st picture on Instagram HAS TO BE with you guys!! Send me some crazy selfies - the best ones will inaugurate my acc :)#ParineetionInsta."

"So many lovely selfies already!! Get your friends along .. "Lets see how many people you can fit in one selfie!!!! The more people in the picture, the better it is!!! :)," she posted further.

With her upcoming movie 'Kill Dil' grabbing attention with it's catchy music, the actress has picked the right time to add spunk to the photo-sharing site.
