Yoga guru Swami Ramdev's Patanjali Ayurved Limited on Friday clarified that the Bolo Messanger was not related to it.

In a tweet, Swami Ramdev's spokesman Tijarawala SK said that Patanjali's official Kimbho app is under advanced development process now and it will be launched soon.  

"Bolo Messanger is not at all related to #Patanjali and it's KIMBHO app which is under advanced development process now and will be launched by Swami Ramdev and Acharya Balkrishna soon and will be placed on PlayStore  AppleStore and other platforms for download," Tijarawala tweeted.

Later on, in an official statement, the Kimbho team urged people not to get mislead by fraudulent messages and companies using Patanjali name to forward their fake apps.

"With blessings of HH Swami Ramdev ji Maharaj and PP Acharya Sri Balkrishna ji we will soon make Kimbho app available publicly on playstore and appstore. We are currently working on adding new features that will revolutionize the field of communication and collaboration. Our app is undergoing rigorous testing to provide a unique and wonderful experience to its users. Please beware of fraudulent messages and companies using Patanjali name to forward their fake apps. We are thankful to you for your support and patience.  Kimbho team," the official statement said.

Patanjali's clarification came after Aditi Kamal, the developer of Kimbho, the Indian version of WhatsApp, reportedly updated the application silently to Bolo Messenger.

In an email, Aditi Kamal said that Bolo Messenger, the Indian alternative to WhatsApp, is now available for download on Android and will be rolled out to iOS users soon. 

Kimbho application, backed by Swami Ramdev, was launched on May 30. However, it was removed from Google Play store within hours of its launch.

Tijarawala had said the app was launched on trial basis for just one day, adding it saw more than 150,000 downloads on Google Play Store within three hours of the launch.
