Defying the notion that becoming an Instagram influencer is a thing for young blood, Mr Yeshpal Verma and Mrs Shanta Verma are slaying it with their trending videos.
“It’s never too old to have fun,” says this Haryana-based couple, who these days are busy managing their Instagram account, which has amassed thousands of loving followers.
During the lockdown of April 2020, Yeshpal Verma’s granddaughter Jonita started an Instagram account for him to share some of his dance moves. It turned out that his wife, Shanta, was also interested in joining in on the fun. So the three found a way to kill boredom with creativity, and thus, the Mr and Mrs Verma page was born.
