The National Award-winning actress Kangana Ranaut has taken Koo, India’s 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 actor’s spectacular performances and commercial success. Kangana’s 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 Thalaivii’s 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.
