    The Union Minister joined the FaceApp trend on social media.
    Union Minister Smriti Irani joined the growing list of celebrities who are sharing pictures of their older versions using FaceApp. However, instead of using the app to share her look, the BJP leader posted a throwback picture crediting producer Ekta Kapoor for the look.

    Giving her own twist to the trend, the actor-turned-politician posted a picture from her 'Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi' days, as an aged Tulsi Virani.

    Sharing the picture, she wrote, "#When @ektaravikapoor gets to you before the #faceappchallenge #tbt."

    Kapoor, who continues to be good friends with Irani, replied to the post, saying, "....and u do it like a boss!!! It was d third leap na."
