Prime Minister Narendra Modi's government earlier this month banned 118 more Chinese mobile applications including Player Unknown's BattleGrounds Mobile, popularly known as PUBG.
While the platform has multiple accounts on Twitter, namely PUBG, PUBG Support, PUBG MOBILE Esports, PUBG Esports, PUBG MOBILE, PUBG MOBILE INDIA and so on. @PUBG, the official Twitter handle of the company has 1.6 million followers and follows 67 accounts.
PUBG MOBILE INDIA (@PUBGMOBILE_IN), on the other hand, has 2.67 lakh followers and follows 5 accounts. While 4 accounts are linked to the company itself, the fifth account looks a bit curious. The company, for some reason, follows comedian Kunal Kamra.
Kamra describes himself as "A propagandist masquerading as a comedian, A card holding member of the CPI & an owner of the new I-phone basically a total hypocrite (sarcasm alert!).
The stand-up comic is known for an outspoken critic of the BJP government and his political comedy is often laden with jokes on the ruling party and Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
We can only wonder why PUBG is a "follower" of Kunal Kamra.
He was recently spotted at the Republic office to present Arnab Goswami with a special gift.
Arriving with filmmaker Anurag Kashyap at Republic TV's office in Mumbai, Kamra posted a picture of the duo posing outside the TV channel's office with the award.
He tweeted, "Birthday boy @anuragkashyap72 & me went to the @republic’s office to give Arnab an excellence in journalism award... Republic security said bina permission ke allowed nahi hai..."
