Vishal Pandey, 22, had nearly 17 million followers on TikTok and used the platform to regularly post videos — everything from dancing to short humorous acting sketches. His popularity on the platform had helped him secure acting offers for some movies, he said.

“TikTok opened so many doors for me. Instead of having to line-up outside auditions, I got calls from casting agents saying ‘Can you please work in our web series’,” Pandey said.

“Right now, there is absolutely no app that can compare to TikTok. None,” he added.

After India imposed the ban but just before the app went blank, many TikTok users posted videos expressing their displeasure. Some told their followers to track their future posts on YouTube or Instagram.

Indian video-creation apps like Roposo, described on Google’s app store as “India’s own video app,” and another named Chingari are likely to see a popularity surge after the TikTok ban.

But some users say they will continue to miss TikTok.

Indian student Siri Challa, 23, had only recently started posting videos of her mother and herself dancing to catchy songs on TikTok. In less than three months, she garnered 1 million followers and a promotion deal with a beauty brand.

“I’m going to miss it, but I guess it is time to move on,” Challa said.
