In just six months, Kangana has become the first female Bollywood actor to have one million followers on the social media platform
National, September 16, 2021: The National Award-winning actress and the Queen of Bollywood – Kangana Ranaut – has taken Koo, Indias microblogging platform, by storm. Since opening her account on Koo in February 2021, she has crossed 1 million followers.
Fans congratulated Kangana on reaching the milestone and several Koos talked about the actors spectacular performances and commercial success. Kanganas official Koo account – @kanganaroffical – gained tremendous traction and her followers almost doubled in the last three months, making her the only female celebrity to achieve this feat on the platform.
Kangana has been posting enthusiastically about her upcoming trilingual film, Thalaivii – a biopic of the late Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu J Jayalalitha – in which she stars opposite Arvind Swamy. In an interview about the film, she mentioned that she was intimidated by the role and drew many parallels between herself and the late leader. In a recent post on Koo, Kangana announced the film Thalaiviis first song, Teri Aankhon Mein, along with the official poster.
A Koo spokesperson said: We are elated that Kangana has reached one million followers on our platform. As an early supporter of the platform, she has been instrumental in helping Koo propagate the message of overcoming linguistic barriers to make genuine connections. She has been the torchbearer of expressing and always voiced her opinions without hesitation on the platform. We appreciate her support and wish her many more milestones for her. We believe that our multilingual features will help her connect with her fans across the country.”
Kangana Ranaut is the recipient of several awards, including four National Film Awards and four Filmfare Awards. She is fondly known as the Queen of Bollywood and has directed Manikarnika – The Queen of Jhansi, in which she is the main protagonist.
Koo was founded in March 2020, as a micro-blogging platform in Indian languages. Available in multiple Indian languages, Koo enables people from different regions in India to express themselves in their mother tongues. In a country where just 10% of India speaks English, theres a deep need for a social media platform that can deliver immersive language experiences to Indian users and help them connect with each other. Koo provides a stage for the voices of Indians who prefer to interact in Indian languages.
