Bhuvan Avnindra Shankar Bam (pronounced [ˈbʱʊʋən baːm]; born 22 January 1994) is an Indian comedian, writer, singer, songwriter, and YouTube personality from Delhi, India. He is known for his YouTube comedy channel BB Ki Vines. He is the director of BB Ki Vines Private Limited corporation.
Early life and education
Bam is a Maharastrian, born on 22 January 1994 in Vadodara, Gujarat to Avnindra and Padma Bam. Later on, his family moved to Delhi. He attended Green Fields School in Delhi and graduated from Shaheed Bhagat Singh College, Delhi University, with a bachelor's degree in history.
Bam launched his internet career in uploading a video in which he lampooned a news reporter who asked a woman insensitive questions regarding the death of her son due to the Kashmir floods. The video went viral in Pakistan, inspiring Bam to create his own YouTube channel in June 2015.
BB Ki Vines
BB Ki Vines is a YouTube channel whose 2–12 minute videos depicts the life of an urban teenager, and his whimsical conversations with his friends and family – all played by Bam himself. He has 20 million subscribers on his YouTube channel and is known for playing characters like Banchoddas, Sameer Fuddi, Titu Mama, Bablu, Janki, Mrs. Verma, Adrak Baba, Mr. Hola, Detective Mangloo, Dr. Sehgal and Babli Sir.
The videos are filmed using a front camera on a phone by Bam himself. He originally uploaded his videos to Facebook, and then moved to YouTube.
In August 2016, Bam released a music video "Teri Meri Kahani". This was followed by "Sang Hoon Tere", "Safar", "Rahguzaar" and "Ajnabee". He also appeared in a short film, Plus Minus, along with Divya Dutt which earned him a Filmfare award. In December 2018, he began a new digital series on YouTube called Titu Talks, that featured Shah Rukh Khan as the first guest.
In 2019, he released the song, "Ajnabee" on his YouTube channel.
In May 2020, Bam uploaded an episode of Titu Talks titled 'Lifeline of Society' in which he interviewed an electrician, house help, farmers, transgenders and milkmen to understand the difficulties they are facing during the COVID-19 lockdown in India. He announced that the earnings from this episode would be used for social causes. After a month, he revealed on Twitter that the video had generated ₹5,20,000, of which the majority of the money was used to provide ration kits, food, and milk to the slums in Delhi NCR. The rest of the money was donated to the farmers' relief fund, sanitary workers, the transgender community, milkmen, community kitchens, dog shelters, and organizations for the blind and migrant.
In January 2021, he released a statement claiming that his uploaded videos had had a total number of 3 billion views.
