A few years prior, Bhuvan Bam was just a college-going student who had a night shift work as an artist at a Mughlai eatery in Delhi. Today, he is India’s first genuine YouTube star, known as the BB Ki Vines. His channel BB Ki Vines (Bhuvan Bam Ki Vines), began in 2015 and now has 19.2 million subscribers.
In any case, in contrast to his YouTube rivals, Bhuvan has enhanced his content more than ever. Other than entertaining vines and videos, he is likewise building up himself as a vocalist and entertainer. He even teamed up with worldwide YouTube star Lilly Singh. He acted in a short film with Divya Dutta called Plus-Minus.
In an interview, Bhuvan Bam talks about how his channel got a breakthrough, “I was watching the devastations of the Kashmir floods, and a reporter was asking a local, who had just lost her house and her son, how she was feeling. I was stunned at the insensitivity. I did a 10-15 second satire on it and put it up on Facebook,” the video is deleted now. he continued, “It was just supposed to be a one-off, but I thought of doing a few more. I always had funny stories to tell, but my family members never laughed at them. So, I decided to go to a different, if unsuspecting audience!” He continued, “At that time, Vine was a very popular video hosting service that allowed you to post and share six-second long videos, hence the vlog name. I thought maybe I will change the name later. But it became a hit and the name stuck!”
He has always considered himself lucky, no matter how many views, even mere as 15 views he had gotten. He said, “Slowly, that 15 became 300,”. He continued, “Then it started becoming popular in my college. From college WhatsApp groups, my videos travelled to other colleges, and I don’t know how, but suddenly I became very popular in Karachi University! My videos went viral in Pakistan and Bangladesh, but, funnily enough, not in India. India took a lot of time to warm up to my videos!”
