By Bryan Durham - August 26, 2019
There’s no taking away from the fact that Tanishk Bagchi’s music is making all the right noises. Today, he has become Bollywood’s only music director to have four music videos with 500 million-plus views on YouTube.
Count Machine‘s Cheez Badi (where he is credited as a music programmer) and that list goes up to five. But let’s stick to the ones we know for sure have him credited in the music direction department.
Aankh Marey (Simmba), Dilbar (Satyameva Jayate), Badri Ki Dulhania (Badrinath Ki Dulhania) and now, Vaaste have cemented his position as a bonafide hitmaker.
Vaaste becomes the only non-film original single to stake that claim while Badri Ki Dulhania is his only Bollywood original to achieve the YouTube feat.
Tanishk is all set to go for #6 with Leja Re (442 million), which is closest to the 500-million milestone, and gives Dhvani Bhanushali her second lead solo hit with 500 million-plus views.
Here’s the list of his most watched videos on YouTube in descending order of views (500 million and above)…
- Aankh Marey (Lyric Video) – 630 mn
- Aankh Marey (Official Video) – 617 mn
- Badri Ki Dulhania – 596 mn
- Dilbar (Lyric Video) – 591 mn
- Vaaste – 501 mn
