India’s most celebrated youth icon and Asia’s #1 digital content creator Ajey Nagar’s YouTube channel CarryMinati has hit a new high. With 30 million subscribers and cumulative 2.3 billion views on his channel, the fast-rising digital phenomenon who enjoys a massive fan following for his inimitable comic skits and rib-tickling reaction videos, has now become India’s first independent digital content creator to reach this exceptional milestone. CarryMinati is officially the most followed YouTube influencer in India and Asia.
Thanking his audiences on the new feat, Delhi-based Ajey Nagar states, “This is such an emotional and overwhelming moment for me. My journey from a humble 50 views for my first video to 30-40 million per video now, it’s been an eventful journey with a fair share of hard work and struggles. These increasing numbers are indicative that despite the criticism, my content has found resonance with the majority of the masses. I hope I can continue to entertain people with the same zest and zeal while also creating an impact socially. I would especially like to thank my fans, my parents and my business partner, Deepak Char for all the love, support and validation.”
Recently the 21-year-old Gen Z’s favourite social media icon was roped in for his maiden acting innings in the Amitabh Bachchan-Ajay Devgn starrer thriller-drama ‘Mayday’ to essay the eponymous role of a social media sensation and he also marked his foray in the music score of a Bollywood film with Abhishek Bachchan starrer ‘Big Bull’. He was the only Indian to be listed in TIME Magazine’s ‘Top 10 Next Generation Leaders Of 2019′ and also the only Indian digital creator to be roped in by Paramount Pictures for “Mission Impossible Fall Out” promotions with Tom Cruise, Henry Cavill and others. He has also dropped rap singles like ‘Vardaan’, ‘Yalgaar’, ‘Zindagi’, ‘Trigger’, ‘Warrior’, ‘Bye Pewdiepie’ and featured in Salim-Sulaiman’s ‘Date Karle’.
CarryMinati has been winning audiences with his roasting videos, satirical parodies, diss tracks and rap songs for over a decade now and started making videos on YouTube when he was 10. Known for empowering the youth through his realistic, impactful and thought-provoking content, his contextual videos touch upon relatable and trending topics, sprinkled with his signature dose of rib-tickling and appealing humour which has earned him fans from across the world.
