ITDC INDIA EPRESS/ ITDC NEWS Superstar Rajinikanth, on Monday, launched his daughter Soundarya's voice-based social media platform - Hoote - offering 60-second live voice recording option or to upload a recorded voice in 15 Indian and 10 foreign languages, of choice.
The new app is said to take the social media by storm, as it hopes to "emotionally" connect iconic leaders with their fans in their own voices and native tongue. "Hoote is the sound the owl makes and white owl is considered as a symbol of wisdom and hence the name," Soundarya Rajinikanth, who co-founded the app with Sunny Pokala, said.
Announcing the official launch of ‘Hoote’, she claimed the app is India's first voice-based social media platform for the world, from Chennai.
While working on the film Annaatthe in Hyderabad, her father sent her a voice note. "This inspired me to come up with a platform to connect celebrities or leaders with their fans or followers by enabling them to hear the original voice speak in the native language," she told reporters in Chennai during the launch function.
Recalling the top actor's tweet on December 3, 2020 containing his voice message of launching the political party and announcing the date for it, she said "this didn't happen because of the situation but ‘Hoote’ has happened."
