International YouTuber PewDiePie and Indian music brand T-Series’s battle is now getting intense. Indian film production house and music label T-Series needs slightly more than 800 subscribers to beat Swedish YouTuber PewDiePie’s channel and become the No 1 YouTube Channel. Seems like he is losing the battle.
The battle between the two channels was going on for long. Even T-Series head honcho Bhushan Kumar started #BharatWins campaign on social media, urging people to help in making T-Series the world’s most subscribed YouTube channel.
Currently, T-series has over 90,337,357 subscribers while PewDiePie has subscribers with a count of 90,338, 188.
Earlier this month, Bhushan took to micro-blogging site Twitter and tweeted, “There is an Indian YouTube channel on the brink of becoming World’s No.1. It has taken us a lot of effort to come this far. To take my father Mr. Gulshan Kumar’s dream forward, I started this channel. Today, it belongs to you, to the entire nation. It’s a historic moment for all of us. So let’s come together and subscribe to T-Series YouTube channel and make India proud,”
Many Bollywood celebrities such as Salman Khan, Varun Dhawan, Arjun Kapoor and John Abraham joined the online battle between PewDiePie and YouTube, to plead with netizens to subscribe to T-Series’ channel on YouTube.
The T-Series YouTube channel began on March 13, 2006. It has 29 sub-channels and features songs and film trailers.
Meanwhile, International YouTuber’s fans are leaving no stone unturned to help him to maintain the top spot. From putting a million dollar billboard in Times Square to circulating supportive tweets, they are using all the creative tactics to support him.
