The people of India have been in the throes of TikTok fever for a while now. The video-sharing app has made stars out of people crying for no reason and generally doing the weirdest shit imaginable.
TikTok mania has now gotten so massive that there's an actual TikTok video 'Film Festival' happening in Pune, Maharashtra.
Twitter user Suyash shared a picture of a poster for the event in Marathi, and everything the event entails.
If the hoarding is to be believed, the event will be attended by TikTok stars as well as Hindi and Marathi film celebrities.
You apparently also get a trophy and certificate simply for participating in the festival, registration for which is compulsory.
