Jannat Zubair Rahmani is a star with a career in acting and music, in the Indian entertainment scene. She has a strong fan base on the social network and video sharing app TikTok. Initially known as musical.ly, TikTok started as a platform for young people, teens mostly, to share their creativity through short videos, miming songs, dance, and short comedy. ByteDance, the company in Beijin that launched the platform in 2017 was founded by Zhang Yiming. Tiktok held the title of the most widely downloaded app in the US in 2018, with its primary marketing outside of China.

9. Has makeup and fashion as her special interests
One of Jannet’s special interests that keeps her age mates and fan base following her religiously is a love for fashion and beauty.

She is constantly experimenting on a new look, certainly being a reputable trend setter. Her best products are Chanel. Her fashion sense straddles both western and Indian dress although she stays clear off short garments that show too much skin.
10. Has had to act on challenging parts of scripts
She once acted in an underwater shot in the TV series, Phulwa, and in her view, being submerged in water was the most difficult scene she has had to play so far.

Jannat brings a couple of important lessons to both fans and to the celebrity world. She is proof that with parental support children can achieve their dreams as early as they wish to.
