Mumbai: Former Indian cricketer Irfan Pathan on Thursday urged his fans to remain genuine as he insisted that having more followers on social media does not make you successful.
Pathan took to Twitter and wrote, “Having more followers on social media doesn’t make you successful, apparently you can buy them too… #stayreal.”
