Actor Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is set to make foray into social media through Instagram on May 11.

The 44-year-old actor, who has steered clear of the digital space (she's not even on Twitter) will make her debut on the photo-video sharing social networking service.

"Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has always been a private person and her presence on the social media platform is basically her way of thanking all her well wishers who have been hiving her so much love through the start of her career; a way to directly connect with them," a press release from the actor's PR team stated.

A source close to Aishwarya revealed it is due to constant requests from her well-wishers and admirers from across the globe that she opted to have an official handle on Instagram to keep her fans abreast of her life, projects, etc.

Aishwarya will attend the ongoing Cannes Film Festival. This will be her 17th year at the festival.
