Dog lover, philosopher, painter, explorer — Jubilee actress Wamiqa Gabbi is grabbing eyeballs not only with her portrayal of Niloufer in the Prime Video series but also with her free-spirited persona on social media. The 29-year-old, who recently garnered positive reviews for her work in Vishal Bhardwaj’s short film Fursat, is an Instagram star with over 2.2 million followers. Here’s why we cannot get enough of Wamiqa on the social media platform.



Out in the fields, in a breezy kaftan over a black bikini, Wamiqa posed for a photo that perfectly captures the tug-of-war between love and freedom. Wamiqa is choosing to be free. “The ultimate state of love is freedom, absolute freedom and any relationship that destroys freedom is not worthwhile,” she writes alongside her photos.

Loves to experiment

In a wine-red dress with a beige overcoat, she poses for a bunch of motion photos. She cracks a joke in the caption — “You wanna see the bean get mean? 🫘”

In this post from 2021, she tries her hand at manipulating a still photo and experimenting with the elements. “There is magic everywhere…,” she writes.

The artist

Wamiqa loves to paint. In a video that says, “Rang karna bhi zindagi ko jeene ki tarah hota hai…zaada sochoge toh mazaa nahin aayega (Painting is like living…if you think about it too much you won’t enjoy it),” she picks up a paintbrush and starts painting the canvas.

Singer Arooj Aftab also played behind Wamiqa and her friend in one of her painting sessions, and the two seemed to have a lot of fun together.

Loves poetry

If there’s one thing Wamiqa’s captions tell, it’s how she lives on poetry, sometimes that poetry is tinged with philosophy. She combines two noir shots of her with one such caption — “Courage is a love affair with the unknown 🖤”. Her eyes grab all the attention in the black-and-white frames.

A dog person

Wamiqa is a dog person. Amidst the posts of her with her furry friends, she gets her puppy an artistic shot. The pictures, first of her, and then of her puppy in a dreamy white frame, is captioned, “All I need is Gabbar and his intervention in my dreams 🤍🐶 #PuppyLove”. She looks ethereal in a white crop top and floral headband.

She showers her four-legged friends with love and food.

Loves to wear white

Wamiqa has something white in her wardrobe for every occasion.

Even on her official shoots, she favours white against stark backgrounds. In a beige coat over a white dress here, she steals the spotlight.

The Osho way

Wamiqa’s love for Osho’s philosophy often reflects on her social media. This time, she adds four verses from the philosopher in a dreamy snap.

Goofy and fun

Wamiqa certainly knows how to have fun in between work and strict shoot schedules. Here’s a look at her goofy side that wins over fans. She starts off graceful, all set up for a serious and calm take, and then her fun side comes out.
