The Selfie Gospel: 15 Types of Selfies Our Bollywood Actresses Take

Rashmi Daryanani , 03 Apr 2014

Here’s the deal: at the Team MissMalini office, we take selfies very seriously. In fact, if you were to pop into office at random, chances are high that you’ll catch someone mid-selfie – after all, we just can’t get through the day without showing someone our face via Snapchat, or documenting just how adorable we look today via Instagram. Turns out, our Bollywood actresses take selfies just as seriously, and if you pay close attention, you can actually categorise them all into several groups. I spent much of my day trawling through approximately 200 selfies just to bring to you this huge collection of pictures (yes, you want my job), so enjoy – and maybe pick up some tips for your own Instagram account!

1. The pout selfie

You know what they say – when in doubt, pout.
