Darshan Raval’s ‘Kamariya’ gets fastest million likes for an Indian artist on YouTube
By Bryan Durham - October 25, 2018
Races to the milestone in less than two months!
It’s the sort of stories dreams are made of. An independent artist hitting a milestone in record time, far faster than his better known and followed contemporaries, becoming the fastest and youngest Indian artist to do so.
With Kamariya, Darshan becomes part of a rather select club of Indian singers. Those that have over a million likes in films as well as non-film singles. His most liked video, Tera Zikr (at 1.4 million likes, at the moment) is a non-film single, while Kamariya (at 1 million likes) is a Bollywood single.
That’s not just it, though. Kamariya (published on August 31, 2018) reached the milestone in 56 days flat! Tera Zikr (published on November 8, 2017) reached the mark within one year.
That makes Darshan the fastest to reach the milestone as well as the youngest Indian artist to do so with videos that have far lesser views than of artists like Guru Randhawa, Neha Kakkar, Badshah or Harrdy Sandhu.
What’s even more noteworthy is that his Bollywood career saw a breakthrough only this year after two massive hits in Kamariya and Chogada and a string of non-film hits.>
