Renowned actor, writer, musician and poet Piyush Mishra has joined India’s multi-language micro-blogging platform – Koo. Mr. Mishra will leverage the self-expression platform to engage with fans and share his poems, lyrics and thoughts in Hindi.
Kooing from his handle @itspiyushmishra, the actor posted a couplet in Hindi
थोड़ा नजारा, चटपट बाते
यही कहानी, आते जाते
थोड़ी हसी हैं, थोड़े लतीफे
थोड़ा तराना, चटपट बातें…
बस यारो यहीं बाते, कहानियां, तराने और लतीफे अब KOO पर करेंगे।
A graduate from the National School of Drama (NSD), Mr. Mishra started his career as a theater actor, and made his Bollywood debut in 1998 in Mani Ratnam’s Dil Se. He has acted in films like The Legend of Bhagat Singh, Maqbool, Gulaal, amongst others.
Welcoming Piyush Mishra to the platform, a Koo spokesperson said, “We are elated to have the veteran actor, writer, poet and musician Piyush Mishra on our platform – which enables self-expression in native Indian languages. Over 50 percent of our user base creates content in Hindi, and amongst Hindi speakers, a vast segment is into poetry and literature. We are certain that Piyushji, who is also well-known for his poetic and literary talent, will not only leverage our platform to connect with his fans and followers, but be an inspiration to upcoming actors and performers across India.”
