The channel has taken over Swedish YouTuber PewDiePie's channel by more than 33,000 subscribers. It won't be long till both channels reach the 100 million mark on YouTube. "My heart and thoughts go out to the victims, families and everyone affected by this tragedy", he tweeted.

The feud between PewDiePie and T-Series began around six months ago.

As of this writing, PewDiePie still leads the race but the margin is getting narrower.

"There is an Indian YouTube channel on the brink of becoming World's No.1". On YouTube, it has a multi-channel network consisting of 29 channels, run by a team of 13 people. Currently, T-Series stands with 90,067,197 subscriber base and PewDiePie has 90,071,085 subscribers, every minute the subscriber count is getting changed that's why it's hard to get a ideal number. The channels subscription has grown by 80% compare to previous year at 50 million.

Unlike PewDiePie, T-Series is a record label and production house. "It has taken us a lot of effort to come this far.....let's come together and subscribe to T-Series YouTube channel and make India proud", Bhushan said in a tweet earlier this month. Many don't see this battle as a competition between two YouTube channels, but rather a YouTube culture war between individual content creators like PewDiePie and corporate (such as T-Series).
