Swedish gamer and vlogger PewDiePie has lost his crown as the YouTube star with the most subscribers.
Indian channel T-Series, which share Bollywood film trailers and music videos, last week beat the star with thousand more subscribers than PewDiePie’s.
PewDiePie, real name Felix Kjellberg, posted a video congratulating his rival – and chucked in some shade for good measure.
“All it took was a massive corporate entity with every song in Bollywood,” he sings in the video.
But it appears that PewDiePiew has now bounced back to the top spot. At the time of writing, he has 92,190,716 subscribers to T-Series’ 92,168,949. That leaves a margin of 21, 767 subscribers between them.
Bhushan Kumar, who owns T Series, recently told BBC News that he was “not bothered” about winning the race. “I don’t even know why PewDiePie is taking this so seriously,” he said.
“I have not told my artists to put up supportive messages to boost our followers on our channel. We are not in that game.”
