Celebs like Rajinikanth, Amitabh Bachchan, Priyanka Chopra, Mammootty, Kamal Haasan, Samantha, Ram Charan, Prakash Raj and many others lost their blue tick on Twitter for not paying the subscription fee.

As many refused to pay and they lost their blue ticks. Even those with millions of followers lost their verification status for not paying.

Priyanka Chopra responded by getting back the Twitter blue tick, saying I am Priyanka again. While in other countries celebs are striking at Elon Musk.
