Indian cricketer Yuzvendra Chahal, who was popular on TikTok, says he wholeheartedly supports the Indian government’s decision to ban 59 Chinese apps, including TikTok: “The government has taken the right step after tensions increased on the line of actual control (LAC).”
“Playing cricket for India is my passion. I do not regret the banning of TikTok. I will remain active on Twitter and Instagram. My country comes first,” he said.Moga’s five-year-old TikTok star, whose cheeky one-liners and adorable eye rolls in the guise of a tiny ‘sardarji’ won hearts across the globe and even caught the eye of Punjab CM Amarinder Singh, has asked fans to follow her on Instagram after the government banned the Chinese video sharing platform.
In a recent video, the tiny sardar, Noorpreet Kaur, who goes by Noor, requests her supporters to follow her on Instagram.
