Shivin Narang on TikTok ban: I am sure the decision is in our best interest!

The government of India banned 59 Chinese applications, like TikTok, WeChat and UC Browser, to name a few, as a security measure. Actor Shivin Narang had also joined the app recently, but says he is perfectly fine with the ban.



The government of India banned 59 Chinese applications, like TikTok, WeChat and UC Browser, to name a few, as a security measure. A statement released by the government, on Monday, said that the applications are engaged in activities “prejudicial to sovereignty and integrity of India, defence of India, security of state and public order.”

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.

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."

Shivin made his acting debut with "Suvreen Guggal - Topper Of The Year". He was last seen in "Beyhadh 2", which went off-air during the lockdown and he is currently seen in Khatron Ke Khiladi.

Arjun Bijlani reacts to TikTok ban!

Arjun Bijlani was among celebrities like Shilpa Shetty, Riteish Deshmukh and Genelia D'Souza, who were active users of the app TikTok. But the "Miley Jab Hum Tum" actor supports the government decision and feels that a similar application should be made in India as well.



On Monday night, the Ministry of Information and Technology banned TikTok and 58 other Chinese application citing them as a threat to the security of the country. The ban of the popular short video app, which has as many as 120 million users worldwide, received mixed reaction in India.

A statement released by the government, on Monday, said that the applications are engaged in activities “prejudicial to sovereignty and integrity of India, defence of India, security of state and public order.”

Arjun Bijlani was among celebrities like Shilpa Shetty, Riteish Deshmukh and Genelia D'Souza, who were active users of the app. But the "Miley Jab Hum Tum" actor supports the government decision and feels that a similar application should be made in India as well.

"I strongly support the government's decision. I have not posted a single video since quite some time, and I had deleted the app long time back. Country comes first, I can delete many more apps like this. It was a good time pass and kept us and our fans entertained. Having said that, I think something like that should be made in India as well, not just TikTok, even other apps too, so that we don't feel the need to download any foreign apps.

I think we are capable of doing that. I just hope people look at the ban positively and not let it affect them in any way. It's for a national cause and not for someone's personal benefit," he said.
