Tamil Nadu’s Village Cooking Channel hits 1 crore YouTube subscribers, creates history.
The YouTubers from a small village, Chinna Veeramangalam in Pudukkottai district, gained international popularity over the last few years due to their traditional cooking videos. They recently hit 1 crore subscribers on YouTube.
The channel members which include cousins V Subramanian, V Murugesan, V Ayyanar, G Tamilselvan and T Muthumanickam, are led by their grandfather M Periyathambi, who was a former caterer. During their Diamond Play button unboxing video, the team said that they got into making YouTube videos during the time when they did not have any cultivation to be done. “We have agriculture work for six months and the rest of the time we do not have much to do. That is when we decided to start the channel,” said Subramanian.
