Bollywood actor Anupam Kher complained about a drastic fall in his followers on the micro-blogging site Twitter. He claimed that in the last 36 hours, his followers have fallen by 80,000, and now he wants to know if it was a technical glitch or something else went wrong.
On Thursday, Kher addressed his tweet to the Twitter team and wrote, “Dear @Twitter and @TwitterIndia! I have 80,000 less followers in the last 36 hours! Is there a glitch in your app or something else is happening!! It is an observation. Not a complaint….. yet.:)”
Currently, the Saaransh fame has 18.7 million followers on Twitter. He joined the social media platform in September 2009 and has been an active user since. He often shares his opinion on the platform, interacts with his fans and also uses it for promoting his work.
Reacting to Kher’s tweet, TV and film actor Ssumier Pasricha, popular for his character of Pammi Aunty, tweeted, “Dear god I lost lot of my friends and family members in this pandemic .. I see 10 less people who loved me .. is there a glitch in your software or something else .. it’s is an observation. Not a complaint ….Better things to worry about … than Twitter followers.”
He also shared a screenshot of his tweet on Instagram, Ssumier wondered how people are obsessed with social media even amid the pandemic. He wrote, “Are we serious? That we still worry about our followers … are we so obsessed with this social media? This pandemic has taught us nothing …I thought great people think wise.”
Soon, the audience will get to see Kher narrating and anchoring the Discovery+ documentary Bhuj: The Day India Shook.
