Now many celebrities including Sundeep Kishan, Nikhil Siddharth as well as commoners are sharing their opinion over the decision of ban of TikTok app in India. Recently, Nikhil Siddhartha reacted and said that the ban shouldn’t have been imposed.

He justified the Indian government’ decision of banning the Chinese apps as he said on Twitter, “My instant reaction was the same but Banning these apps is a necessary and the bold move.”
Sundeep Kishan further said , “Tik Tok was evaluated as a $75 Billion company in January 2020 and is one of the Top tax payers in China. We are much funding a Nation China which is attacking us. It’s actually a cool app which should have had better security and privacy features. Unfortunate for them to lose our country India.”
