While both the TikTok stars believe that content is king, they highlighted the fact that better camera smartphones and good audio quality can make a lot of difference. They also urged youngsters to be persistent while joining social media platforms as it may take a while before success arrives.
Interestingly, Manpreet had produced about 150 to 200 videos on TikTok before her first video went viral. She even started teaching in a school but left the job just after two months. Since then, she has been focused entirely on her TikTok platform.
Garg, who got success with his third or fourth video, had not informed his parents about his TikTok journey, until his father came across a video of him on the platform.
