Hi Abhideep Bakshi
If you have an issue with Hostapd and just check the config is correct in /etc/hostapd.conf
The ip the pi reports with ipconfig or ip addr should be

hostapd will fail if dnsmasq is not running so also check
sudo systemctl status dnsmasq
and see if it says it is running.

let me know the output of any errors and I will look into it further for you
