Sourav Joshi is one of the biggest names in the Indian YouTube vlogging scene. The 24-year-old has a massive fanbase across India, which never misses a chance to get a sight of him whenever the YouTuber makes a public appearance. For the unversed, Sourav mostly documents his life, artwork, hobbies, and lifestyle in his YouTube vlogs. However, what makes his vlogs different from other YouTubers is his family.
Sourav Joshi never skips a chance to involve his family members in his vlogs, which creates a sense of relatability to his content. Every fan or follower of a celebrity wants to get an insight into their personal lives, and Sourav has capitalised on this trend incredibly well.
We have often seen Sourav Joshi's sibling, Sahil Joshi or their parents, Harish Joshi and Hema Joshi, making a cameo in the YouTuber's vlogs. Apart from vlogging, Sourav has also featured in a series of music videos like Fati Jeans, Jhoota Lagda, Tera Ho Raha Hoon, Bhai Mere Bhai, Manzoore Nazar, and many more.
However, there are still a series of things that you should know about Sourav Joshi and why almost every youngster in India wants to become a YouTube vlogger like him. So, without further ado, let's get started!
It was on September 8, 1999, when Sourav Joshi was born in a small family in Uttarakhand's Haldwani to his parents, Harinder Joshi and Hema Joshi. As per reports, Sourav's ancestral home is in Almora, and he often visits the Kumon region of Uttarakhand to spend some quality time in the mountains. For the unversed, Sourav's family used to move from one city to another due to his father's not-so-good financial condition.
However, it was Haryana and Punjab where Sourav Joshi spent most of his growing years. Not everyone knows that Sourav's father, Harinder used to work as a labourer, and they weren't financially sound. But to see Sourav reaching such great heights in his professional career and providing all the facilities and love to his parents is nothing less than a film script.
If the reports are to be believed, Sourav Joshi completed his schooling in Haryana, and he was a bright student. However, he was devastated when he couldn't score good marks in his 12th, which crashed his dream of pursuing IIT. After this, Sourav's relatives encouraged him, and he pursued a degree in fine arts from a college in Punjab. As per multiple reports, Sourav even tried to get into architecture, but despite taking coaching in Delhi for the same, he couldn't get through the entrance exams.
Not a lot of people are aware that it was Sourav Joshi's interest in sketching and drawing that ultimately paved the way for his YouTube success. It was back on September 5, 2015, when Sourav Joshi created his YouTube channel by the name Sourav Joshi Arts. Although he didn't get a lot of appreciation at the beginning, but after he touched the mark of 250 videos, he started getting a lot of traffic on his channel.
By the time Sourav Joshi had uploaded 300 videos, he had 3-4K subscribers on his YouTube channel. As of now, Sourav's channel, Sourav Joshi Arts has 4.5 million subscribers and even today, he uploads videos on this channel despite getting most of the fame and recognition from his vlogging channel.
After getting some success on his artwork channel, Sourav Joshi started his vlogging channel in which he used to give a sneak peek to people into his life. The vlogging scene was quite new back then, and the young YouTuber capitalised on it just at the right time. It was on June 26, 2011, when Sourav Joshi created his second YouTube channel, Sourav Joshi Vlogs. As of now, it has 23.1 million subscribers.
If the reports are to be believed, Sourav Joshi earns an estimated income of Rs. 80 lakhs per month from his YouTube channel, Sourav Joshi Vlogs. Almost all his videos have a minimum of 1 million views, which speaks volumes about his massive fanbase across india. Apart from his YouTube videos, Sourav also does a lot of brand collaborations, which is his other source of income.
The famous YouTuber, Sourav Joshi is reportedly dating a girl named Priya Dhapa. From working together on multiple songs to going together on a series of family vacations, Sourav and Priya have been in each other's company for a while. If we take a look at the constant comments on Sourav and Priya's pictures and videos, we see how netizens have already labelled the latter as his girlfriend.
As per multiple reports, neither Sourav Joshi nor Priya Dhapa have denied their relationship rumours but are still far from making it official. But there's no denying the fact that they look good together, and their massive fanbase wishes to see them together.
Sourav Joshi is an avid car lover and owns some of the best four-wheelers in his garage. Talking about his car collection, Sourav has a Toyota Fortuner Legender (Rs. 46 lakhs), Toyota Innova Crysta (Rs. 23 lakhs), Mahindra Thar (Rs. 10 lakh), Porsche 718 Boxter (Rs. 1.52 crores).
According to several media reports, Sourav Joshi's net worth is estimated at around the mammoth sum of Rs. 9.98 crores. The way Sourav's vlogs are still doing incredibly well on YouTube, there's no denying the fact that he is going to add more numbers to his net worth in the coming years.
