Every morning, the first thing I do is check TikTok. I was very disappointed when I saw the news today morning and realised that TikTok was banned by the Indian government. This is only an entertainment platform and you can distract yourself from stress. My fans on the platform constantly tell me that they feel very relaxed after seeing my videos. People of different age groups used this platform. I am very sad.”
