The Instaclout: Five Indians who found fame on Instagram... organically
1. Shivesh Bhatia (@shivesh17)
Shivesh Bhatia is still an undergrad student and his Instagram account currently has 75.5k followers! A ‘self-taught baker and food blogger’, Bhatia’s Insta feed overflows with eye candy for the food lover.
2. Tanmay Bahulekar (@bombaybhukkad)
Along with snappy reviews of best bites around Maximum City, Tanmay Bahulekar also frames unexplored eateries on his iPhone5.
3. Pranita Kocharekar (@pranitart)
Illustrator and graphic designer Pranita’s work is quirky, colourful and fun. Her series of illustrations on anxiety, called Is That You? addressed mental illnesses in a light-hearted way and went viral.
4. Siddhartha Joshi (@siddharthajoshi)
Travel blogger and photographer Siddhartha Joshi has been chasing people with his camera - from the bylanes of his neighbourhood to countries like Germany, asking everyone: “Tell Me Your Dream”. His Instagram account features a new face every day, chronicling the dreams of a variety of people from auto rickshaw drivers to shopkeepers, garbage collectors to random passersby.
5. Ayushi Bangur (@styledrive)
From the latest trends to super cool DIY tips, this Mumbai-based fashionista’s Instagram handle is a beautiful portrait of Indian and contemporary fashion. Big names like Forever21 feature regularly in her stylebook, but there are just as many edgy outfits created with the best of high-street brands.
