Bug Description

What was I doing?
Ans: I was using Kali Linux in the latest stable Vmware Workstation Pro to learn Ethical Hacking from a course. Suddenly I wanted to use Telegram to search for something but unfortunately, Telegram was not able to take any keyboard inputs for some reason. Click to different groups/chats also didn't work. The only thing that worked was these three options:
i) Minimize
ii) Maximize
iii) Close

A proof which I recorded using my mobile (This time it's on YouTube):

The telegram was installed form APT repository (aka old stable):
sudo apt install telegram-desktop

Let me know what's wrong?

After shutting down Kali + VMware Workstation Pro, the Telegram started working fine (i.e took user keyboard & mouse input fine). Something is wrong.
