Former supermodel Milind Soman recently quitted from popular Chinese video TikTok.
“Am no longer on TikTok. #BoycottChineseProducts,” Soman tweeted.
His move to delete his TikTok account came after Ladakh-based engineer Sonam Wangchuk made a YouTube video encouraging Indians to delete TikTok and boycott everything made in China.

Soman also posted a short clip of Wangchuk’s video message along with his tweet.
In his video, Wangchuk said that said was that the need of the hour was not only to contain China with the help of the ‘bullet’ but also with the ‘wallet’.
“Give up all Chinese software in a week, all Chinese hardware in a year,” he said.
“On one hand, our soldiers are fighting them and on the other hand, we buy Chinese hardware and use software like the TikTok app, we give them business worth crores so they can arm their soldiers to fight against us,” he added.
Wangchuk inspired Phunsukh Wangdu’s character which was played by Aamir Khan in the film 3 Idiots.
The former supermodel’s move to boycott TikTok app was also appreciated by Wangchuk.
“Hope other celebrities play their part too! Thank you @milindrunning for #BoycottMadeInChina,” he added.
