Fans had mixed response to his decision as they shared their take on his ‘break’. A follower Sayyonie wrote “Ye bhi bahut zaroori hai,” supporting him, while another user Sameer replied, “Yeh bhi thik hai…zeher hi zeher ho rakha hai sab jagah… (It’s fine as it’s toxic everywhere on social media).” However, there were many who questioned him and requested to stay put. A few of his followers also cheekily added that he was getting his phone and software updated.

In his ‘last post’, the actor shared, “Hey guys, thank you so much for all the love and warmth on my birthday. My heart is full. In other news, this is going to be my last post on social media. Considering that I am SO active anyway I have decided to drop the pretence. We will continue to communicate as we did before. In addition, AKP has created its official channel! So future updates on me and my films can be found there. Here’s the official handle! @akppl_official. Lots of love, always, a. ”
