Shivin said, “Yes there were a few apps I used. I had joined TikTok very recently for fun and to connect with my fans. Personally, I don’t have any problem if these apps are shut, and I am sure the decision is in our best interest whether it is our privacy or country’s security. But yes, I am really concerned about the people whose career, life and identity was dependent on TikTok, especially in this COVID situation, it can disturb them and affect mental health.”
A recent report suggests that there were around 120 million TikTok users around the world, which included Bollywood celebrities like Shilpa Shetty, Riteish Deshmukh and Genelia D’Souza, to name a few. Actor Shivin Narang had also joined the app recently, but says he is perfectly fine with the ban.
The short video app proved to be a great platform for entertainment for celebs and commoners alike. Even people from remote areas of India used the app to flaunt their creativity.
