#Velfie, is a Video Selfie App, which is a huge social media rage globally. It was launched by serial entrepreneurs Ankush johar and Rammohan Sundaram six weeks ago.
#Velfie is a mobile app that lets consumers create personalised video selfies to popular dialogues and sounds and use those for personal messaging and social media. The app is deeply integrated into the messaging and social media experience. It is available on the Android and iOS platforms.
Yuvraj Singh created a Velfie using one of the famous quotes from Modi’s recent speeches, where he spoke about women empowerment.
The quote was as follows:
“Is taraf uss taraf ka mudda nahi hai, mudda hamari matao beheno ke sanman ka hai, unko jeene ka ek adhikar dene ka hai.”
The PM re-tweeted the post saying,”Yuvi… you are equally talented off the field as you are on it. Thanks for the wishes. Hope you are doing well!”
Yuvi promptly thanked the PM saying: “Thank you sir it’s an honour to receive your msg! Keep making India proud #MakeInIndia”
Yuvraj posted his Velfie on both Instagram and Twitter and also Youtube, after which he seeked appreciation from his fans for his noble gesture and especially the unique way through which he sent out the message of Women Empowerment.
#Velfie is seeing massive growth despite being only six weeks old, with currently over 10,000 downloads daily. It’s trending among the top 3 apps on Google Play Store. Velfie’s growth is driven by users uploading their own sounds (user generated content) and then spreading it viral through Whatsapp, Facebook messenger, Instagram, Twitter, Hike, Line, Wechat, JioChat and others.
#Velfie has seen massive adoption across India, Brazil, Indonesia, Philippines, Malaysia, Vietnam, UAE, Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, Turkey and across over 150+ countries.
