Since Disney+ Hotstar is changing all their plan from September 2021, we recommend recharge only after that, As the Hotstar VIP plan will automatically migrate to the Hotstar Super plan from September 2021 onwards.
Why Airtel Lifetime Validity Recharge Not Available?
Airtel Lifetime validity recharge pack is not available now. Therefore, users need to recharge with any of the available plan recharge packs every month to keep their number active. Companies abandoned the lifetime packs and put the monthly and yearly validity packs to keep the revenue stable.
So, based on the validity pack chosen, users can get validity up to a maximum of 1 year from Airtel. To continue receiving incoming calls and to make outgoing calls, users need to recharge subsequently.
