Aamir already enjoys a huge social media following on Twitter and Facebook, and is looking to extend this via an Instagram account.

He currently has a social media reach of more than 37 million users, and through photo-sharing platform Instagram, Aamir will keep fans abreast about his life and projects, said a statement.

Aamir was scheduled to have a working birthday as he was occupied with the shooting of Vijay Krishna Acharya's period heist drama Thugs of Hindostan at the Mehrangarh Fort in Jodhpur. However, his co-star Amitabh Bachchan suffered from back pain because of the heavy costumes on Tuesday morning.

Thus, while a team of doctors from Mumbai have reached Jodhpur to facilitate Bachchan's treatment, Aamir is back in Mumbai to celebrate his birthday in his hometown.

Thugs of Hindostan also stars Fatima Sana Shaikh, Ronit Roy and Katrina Kaif. It is produced by Aditya Chopra's Yash Raj Films. This film marks his second collaboration with Acharya after the 2013 blockbuster action thriller Dhoom 3, also starring Kaif . It is slated to release this Diwali on 7 November.
