New Delhi: US-based photo and video sharing platform Triller has witnessed a monumental surge in downloads and gained millions of users organically in the first few weeks of entering India. Overtaking YouTube and Instagram in the iOS App Store in its first week of being released in the country, it was ranked no. 1 in the ‘photo and video’ segment. Owing to this success, the app is now all set to further attract the Indian youth by onboarding popular influencers and celebrities like Bhuvan Bam, Armaan Malik, Awez Darbar and many others to create enticing content on the platform.
Just like any other country, influencers in India also play a significant role in shaping and influencing people’s thoughts, choices and opinions. Internationally, celebrities like Rebel Wilson, Kevin Hart, Alicia Keys and Cardi B are also on the app. The social video platform is raging amongst the millennials in India as they have found a new home for a creative expression of talent. With an intention to make Triller the choice of millions of Indians, the app has invited various renowned artists and personalities like Bhuvan Bam, Armaan Malik, Awez Darbar, DIVINE, Manav Chabbra, etc. to be on board to mark the launch of the app.

US-based Triller is one such app and it’s been an absolute pleasure partnering with the team on their initial launch in India. My single ‘next2me’ got a massive global pushout via Triller and even went on to top the inaugural Billboard-Triller U.S and Global charts. India is rapidly and evidently becoming a global market and I’m really excited to see Triller expand their horizons in India in such a massive way.”
Awez Darbar, the hugely popular dancer, choreographer and content creator who also has over 10 million views on his page, says, “I have always been very passionate about making quality content for my fans which makes them smile, laugh and entertain them and I’m excited to explore Triller as a platform to reach out to new audience and grow my digital family.”
