Actors these days, know their way around to use social media in order to gain more fans and followers and to influence their fans with their engaging social media posts. Even the most loved and most popular actresses of the South like Nayanthara have sometimes kept their life private and stayed away from social media. However, budding actresses like Malavika Mohanan, who has acted in only one film so far, has already become a great social media influencer with more than 1 million followers on the photo-sharing application.

However, pan Indian star Anushka Shetty, who shot to Himalayan fame after her role as Devasena in the Baahubali franchise, is slowly inching close to 4 million followers. To keep their fans updated about their whereabouts and to promote their films, actors use social media and their popularity and fanbase are increasing more and more.
