At just 24, Bhuvan Bam’s YouTube channel has more than 6.7 million subscribers. The young internet star says he’s afraid of the amount of recognition he’s getting early on in his career. “I’m really scared of losing it all. I never imagined that something like this would happen. I never imagined people would give me so much attention. But now that they’re giving it to me, it’s like a responsibility and also a pressure,” he says.
The vine creator revealed that he often sits with his parents wondering whether he will still be relevant because of the ever-increasing competition. “YouTube has given such a visibility to people who want to showcase their talent. And everyone’s on it. There’s so much great content that every week there’s a new creator who’s hitting the million mark,” he says.
His ultimate goal, however, is making films. “I want to be an all-rounder. I want to act. And I love writing. The ultimate aim is Bollywood. YouTube is a thing but Bollywood penetrates every kind of audience. Guys at every nook and corner watch Bollywood.”
