Social media has become immensely popular. Instagram is one of the most popular social media platforms. People share their pictures, videos and pictorial stories to keep in touch with their followers. Instagram is such a big thing that there are so many individuals who became celebrities only through it. Pakistani celebrities however are obviously not just Instagram celebrities. They have worked really hard to get where they are today. There was a debate some time back that whether the popularity on Instagram affects a Pakistani celebrities’ career or not.
