Here is why 2021 was a Year of NFTs for Indian Celebrities

With India’s increased attention on digital tokens recently, this concept has spread across the country. People in India and throughout the globe became increasingly aware of NFTs as digitization spread, and the fad quickly took hold in a couple of months.

Kamal Haasan’s NFT collection was introduced on Fantico by CEO Abhayanand Singh, who describes an NFT as thus:

This was done because most people saw significant potential for NFTs in the market and wanted an opportunity to hold a few unique tokens associated with some of the country’s most notable personalities. In the year 2021, celebrities from all walks of life — from Amitabh Bachchan to Salman Khan to Kamal Haasan to Yuvraj Singh to Rohit Sharma to Manish Malhotra — have debuted or announced their digital tokens.
