Why Bollywood Stars Are Coming On YouTube As Creators?
Bollywood is big. Definitely it is. But are platforms like YouTube is any less? No. Today, they are equally big, if not bigger. Both of the industry has a segregated viewership, and they are equally good. And to be honest, Digital is far better than Bollywood. It is convenient, people can watch anytime they feel like (No showtimes!). Also, it’s a little tough for everyone to manage time for a movie, but easier to consume a much shorter and crisp content on YouTube.
As a brownie point, Youtube also provides the privilege of engagement (Like, comment), so people feel much more closer and connected to digital celebrities than the ‘Bollywood’ stars.
There are BB Ki Vines, Technical Guruji, Mostly Sane, Mumbiker Nikhil, Ashish Chanchlani and so many more YouTubers who are doing really good in their career. The sole reason is that their content is engaging and really nice. For the same, brands are really relying on them.
As each one of them can endorse brands in a much better way than Bollywood stars. People feel more connected with the YouTubers, so their influence can do wonders for the brands.
On top of everything, Youtube has a massive reach at convenience. And there are few smart Bollywood actors who realized that at the right time.
So there could be a few possible reasons for the Bollywood actors who turned YouTubers, to do so.
1. Take Some Leverage Of YouTube To Promote Their Films.
This could be the most possible reason why a Bollywood actor can turn into a YouTuber. Taking the leverage of YouTube and discounting it to promote their films with the massive reach of YouTube is a great deal.
2. To Endorse Brands Better.
As you know, digital has better engagement, so any actor who will have a YouTube account and who is also active on it will get a much better brand endorsement than the actors who do not have a channel. Actors are just multiplying their brand’s earnings.
3. To Really Connect More With People.
Some of the Bollywood actors who turned YouTubers have come to YouTube with the sole intention of connecting with the people in a better way. They are not there to promote films or endorse brands. They really wish to entertain their fans and admirers. Also, in the same way, many just want to create good content.
4. Understanding The Future.
As already said, many smart actors and actresses came on to YouTube at the right time to get the reaped fruits. OTT and Digital platforms are the ultimate future of content and understanding it, many of the smart ones already hopped on the journey of YouTube.
These can be the possible reasons for the Bollywood Actors who turned YouTubers to do so. But let’s unveil who are the actors who turned YouTubers actually, and who are absolutely rocking as YouTube creators? We have handpicked the top 5 for you all.
