How far can you go with YouTube — A Delhi college boy reached Davos in 5 years
- Bhuvan just became the first Youtube sensation to attend the
World Economic Forum’s annual meeting at Davos.
- At the meet, he will attend conferences and will also be vlogging his experience to educate his audience on the discussion of a cohesive and sustainable world.
- Bhuvan is as famous as any other Bollywood celebrity in India.
Back then, India had few homegrown comedians. The Viral Fever and All India Bakchod were creating content, but in English.
“I thought I should bring some kind of humour. I’ve grown up watching Kader Khan, Johnny Lever, Govinda kind of movies, David Dhawan movies, ’90s and early 2000s movies. And that was a good change for people. The language barrier was at a breaking point,” Bhuvan told Quartz.
Five years on, Bam has a wide fan base and his videos received a billion views. He is now as famous as any other Bollywood celebrity in India — and celebrities like Karan Johar are in awe of him as well.
He will now go where no one expected this expletive spewing YouTuber will go --- to the World Economic Forum. There he will rub shoulders with top Indian and international CEOs. However, he has a story to tell on how he captured the pulse of young Indians.
He is also a part of a discussion on a cohesive and sustainable world. And is also likely to attend a dinner hosted by YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki, who is inviting creators from around the world. Bollywood actor Deepika Padukone will also be attending the event to speak about stigma around mental illnesses.
