I’ve been waiting to say #JoshMeinAaja to my many fans and well-wishers who all wanted to know which platform I was going to be on. I feel that Josh is the perfect fit for me. I am honoured to share screen space, literally, with India’s most talented creators on a truly made-in-Bharat-for-Bharat app.

Here’s what Sameeksha had to say on behalf of Teen Tigada,

I’m really proud that Teen Tigada got to launch Josh’s first India challenge. The app provides a great creator experience and I was thrilled with getting 2 million fans in 2 weeks. But more than that, the feeling of being with my creator community, inspires me to bring my best self to Josh every day.

The iconic Josh anthem #JoshMeinAaja

The #JoshMeinAaja anthem is a perfect example of catchy and viral content. The track is composed by Clinton Cirijeo and penned down by the legendary Amitabh Bhattacharya. The track garnered more than 951.7 million views and was performed upon by more than top 200 creators.
