T-Series, which had crossed 100 Million
subscribers back in May 2019, has achieved another milestone. It has crossed
200 Million marks sustaining its top position in the list of YouTube channels.
It has once again emerged as the most-subscribed YouTube channel. Just as the
news broke out on Twitter, it started trending everywhere.
It was founded on July 11, 1983, by Gulshan
Kumar as Super Cassettes Industries Private Limited. T-series is mainly known
for Bollywood soundtracks. It joined YouTube on 13 March, 2006. Before 2019, T-series
had to go through a very cut-throat competition with a YouTube channel
PewDiePie in terms of subscribers. The competition had become so intense that
it led to a mass shooting at Christchurch, New Zealand where the shooters
ordered people to subscribe to "PewdiePie'. The race began in September 2008
and went on for around 6 months. It became one of the most talked-about
speculations where numerous people kept a live record of the gain and loss of
subscribers to both channels. After observing how hateful the competition
had become, Kjellberg (the owner of PewDiePie) put an end to the race in a
T-series crossed 150 Million mark in August 2020
and took only one year and three months to gain another 50 Million. It is a
well-known YouTube channel in India. It also has many sister YouTube channels
including T-Series Tamil, T-Series Telugu, Bollywood Classics, T-Series Kids
Hut, T-Series Apna Punjab, etc. It is basically a multi-network channel.
This company is owned by Bhushan Kumar, son
of Gulshan Kumar. T-series has a fan base not only in India but also outside
India. Around 40% of its engagement comes from outside India. It has a great
subscription base in the USA also. Who would have thought that a music company
started by a juice seller in Delhi would one day win the hearts of millions.
