With a following of 12.1 million and a blue tick to boot, TikTok star Nagma Mirajkar is one of the most known faces on the app.

The beginning:  “I was working with an event management company, while blogging on the side. I was also on Musical.ly, but there weren’t a lot of Indians on it and I didn’t get enough views. It finally took off when my take on the #bundropchallenge made it to the app’s Featured page. There’s been no looking back since then.”

A day in your life:  “I work with a team of 6-7 creators, together we shoot and participate in each other’s videos. Finding a location to shoot our videos is the toughest. We’re either chased away by security guards or someone on the street recognises us from TikTok and want to take selfies. The evening is spent editing my videos and thinking of ideas for the next day’s shoot.”

 Pro advice:  “Be consistent. Don’t worry about views in the beginning, just post something every day. Make your content relatable to a wide audience—it can be anyone even the local chaiwalla. Add your personal style to each video, even if you’re recreating a challenge.”
