It seems launching personal apps has become a trend among television celebrities. After actress Rashami Desai, “Tu Aashiqui” actress Jannat Zubair Rahmani launched one on Tuesday to strengthen her fan connect.
“I feel blessed to have millions of people who follow me on different social media platforms and I’m glad they like the content that I share and they never fail to surprise me with numerous edits, sketches, fan arts, quotes etc.
