Earlier, T-Series had defeated Swedish Youtuber Pewdiepie to become the world’s no. 1 YouTube channel. The fight between the two gained momentum on the internet when the two contested one another with an aim to become no.1. It continued for almost 6 months which was concluded in April as Pewdiepie conceded with a rap video. 

T-Series had several big league Bollywood stars campaigning for them on social media, urging fans to subscribe to the channel and to put India on the world map. 

Before this, PewDiePie's channel was the top channel on YouTube since 2013.
