When the Hindi dubbed version of Bunny’s “Sarrainodu” was released on Youtube, it took the video streaming platform by storm, and became the first Indian film to clock 100 million views. The same story is now repeating in the case of DJ as well. Released on Youtube just a few days ago, the Hindi dubbed version of DJ has already clocked 20 million views, the fastest Indian film to achieve the feat.
Hindi dubbed films featuring Bunny do magic on TV channels as well. They often fare better than many Bollywood films. Hindi dubbed films featuring all South star heroes such as Pawan, Mahesh, NTR, Charan, Ajith, Vijay, Surya, Vikram etc. are released on Youtube and in Hindi entertainment channels, but Bunny seems to be seen by Hindi audiences as a way bigger star than all the aforementioned stars.
The astonishing part of the Mega hero’s craze among Hindi audiences is that he has achieved all these records without acting in even one Hindi film yet.
On a related note, the genuinity of youtube views has become highly debatable in the last couple of years. Even the promos of small films are clocking millions of views and likes, leaving everyone puzzled.
