    New Delhi (Sputnik): This is the season to look at the year gone by and in a country like India, with videos increasingly becoming the entry-point of new users to the Internet, YouTube has come up with #YouTube Rewind that provides a snapshot of the videos and stories that caught India’s imagination this year.

    While movies and music continued to rule the hearts and minds of India, with “Rowdy Baby”, a song from southern Indian superstar Dhanush, star of the film “Maari 2”, making it to YouTube’s global most viewed charts, breakout creators like Khandeshi Movies and their signature style of down-home comedy had audiences laughing across the country.

    Also Bollywood tracks like “Coca Cola”, “Dheeme Dheeme” and “O Saki Saki” made it to the Top 10 Trending Music Videos in India in 2019.

    On YouTube, 2019 has been a year when genres like farming, gaming and learning blossomed into categories worth reckoning, demonstrating impressive reach and engagement.

    Across categories, female creators could be seen leading from the front. While 2016 had just one female YouTube creator with a subscriber base of over 1 million, 2019 has seen that number climbing to a whopping 120 female YouTube creators with over a million followers.

    Satya Raghavan, Director at YouTube Partnerships, India, remarked: “For the last several years, video has increasingly been a medium that has inspired and fascinated Indians and also became the canvas for their imaginations. In the 12th year of YouTube’s journey in India, 2019 has proven to be a coming-of-age year in more ways than one.”
