52 Gaj Ka Daman & top Indian YouTube videos with billion+ views.
Top 10 Indian YouTube videos with billionaire views
Utter the word ‘Billionaire’ and chances are that you will immediately get names like Adani, Ambani, Birla, Damani etc. in your mind. But do you know that besides these wealthy billionaires, there are videos which are billionaires too?
No, no! We are not talking in terms of money here but are referring to their YouTube views! While it is a fact that some videos do get good views initially through paid promotions, in the long run, it is the genuinely good video which garners views and maintains that strong momentum.
52 Gaj Ka Daman is a music video which has recently crossed the prestigious Billion viewership mark, a first for a Haryanvi song. Globally, there are just over 220 videos which have become billionaires and that too most of them are children’s videos. In India too, the list is dominated by children’s videos. But if we ignore such children’s videos, then here are the top billionaire YouTube videos from India.

After being uploaded in 2020, the song 52 Gaj Ka Daman hit the billion YouTube view mark in just 8 months! It made the entire team behind the song, especially singer Renuka Panwar, an overnight celebrity. 52 Haj Ka Daman is a folk song which is usually sung at family functions and on auspicious occasions, but the team gave it a modern feel and revived the song completely. Daman is a traditional attire worn by women in Haryana and having a Daman that covers an area of 52 Gaj (yards) is considered to be a thing of honour. An ordinary Daman weighs anything more than 10 Kilos, no imagine something that covers 52 yards!
