PewDiePie’s YouTube rival T-Series is closing in on 100 million subscribers.
YouTube sensation PewDiePie has been locked in a battle with Bollywood music channel T-Series over who can get the most subscribers.
It’s a battle that spawned the ‘Subscribe to PewDiePie’ movement, as fans of the YouTube star attempted to keep him in first place.
But PewDiePie – who recently ended the ‘Subscribe to PewDiePie’ movement in a heartfelt video – has fallen far behind his rival in recent weeks.
At the time of writing, T-Series has amassed a staggering 97,716,187 subscribers.
That’s compared to a hugely impressive 95,544,898 subscribers for PewDiePie.
According to tracking site Social Blade, T-Series is expected to reach 100 million subscribers in less than two weeks.
PewDiePie, on the other hand, isn’t expected to reach the milestone for another 23 days.
Founded in 1983, T-Series is described as India’s largest Music Label and Movie Studio.
“T-Series is associated with music industry from past three decades, having ample catalogue of music comprising plenty of languages that covers the length & breadth of India,” reads the channel description.
“We believe after silence, nearest to expressing the inexpressible is Music. So, all the music lovers who believe in magic of music come join us and live the magic of music with T-Series.”
PewDiePie, on the other hand, became popular for his Let’s Play gaming videos. His videos have racked up a staggering 20 billion views on YouTube.
