For Sahil Khattar, success came early. At 17, he became Chandigarh’s top radio jockey with his programme Love Guru. Early success puffed him up. He started living life king-size. In 2011, Khattar decided to venture out to Mumbai. At home, all hell broke loose. An emotional mother wanted him to be around her. His father wanted him to join his business.
Unable to get steady work, he started writing dialogue and exploring acting. It was a period of struggle. While living in a chawl, he would lie to his parents that he was in a two-bedroom flat in the suburb of Bandra. To save a few bucks, he would walk rather than take an auto or bus.
The hard work paid off in 2014. Culture Machine, a digital media company, signed him up for a programme they were exploring. They were vetting a format where one would pose questions to people on the streets. For Khattar, used to theatre and theatrics, it was a perfect fit.
The channel Being Indian is owned by Culture Machine and the latter takes charge of all the production logistics. Khattar does one video a week. People now recognize him on the streets.
Sanam Puri’s affair with music began when he was six. But it didn’t get serious until 2010. That’s when he, along with his brother Samar and two friends Venkat Subramaniyam and Keshav Dhanraj, came to audition for the Times Music Supastars hunt for a pop band.
They nailed it and thus SQS Supastars band was born. Soon they moved to Mumbai, renamed their band SQS Project. In 2013, the band signed up Ben Thomas, who has managed pop stars like Sonu Nigam and Vishal-Shekhar, as manager. Thanks to Thomas, the same year, they got their Bollywood break with the song Dhatt teri ki from Gori Tere Pyaar Mein.
Their YouTube rise was an accident. He had recorded some videos to be pitched to a few agents for live concerts globally. He put them on YouTube, too. A few months later, the band got a cheque from Google of $800. By 2014, they had rebranded the band to the more catchy Sanam.
Besides their YouTube videos, they do about 15 live shows every month. Their ambition is to revive the indie music culture in India, once shaped by bands like Silk Route.
He is India’s top YouTube star. But there is nothing star-like about Tanmay Bhat, co-founder of All India Bakchod (AIB). An oversized body, a wicked grin, an unfussed look and naughty eyes make for a man who could be easily confused for the big bully in school.
The Mumbai boy figured out his comedic talent early on and since 2009 has been playing the circuit. He was part of Weirdass Comedy founded by Vir Das, was one of the comedians at The Comedy Store and has performed at many stand-up comedy shows besides doing cameos in movies like Ragini MMS2. The thrust was mostly on live gigs.
Bhat made it to the latest Forbes’ Richest Celebrity of the Year, rubbing shoulders with silver-screen stars like Shah Rukh Khan and Amitabh Bachchan.
