Bhushan Kumar reaps the rewards for T-Series’s successful 2019, named among the year’s top newsmakers by ‘Bloomberg 50’.

Bhushan Kumar of T-Series has had a very successful year, with the label having seen a number of blockbuster hits. These successes have landed him on the prestigious ‘Bloomberg 50’, a list comprising the most influential individuals in their respective industries, based on the work done over the last year.

The annual Bloomberg 50 list features Bhushan Kumar for T-Series’s achievements in the digital domain, primarily for being the largest YouTube channel on the planet, as also for his contributions to Indian cinema at large. According to industry experts, T-Series owns roughly 70 per cent of Bollywood’s music industry, and the channel has amassed the highest number of subscribers as well.

This success going digital, as well as their contribution to the Bollywood film industry, has landed the T-Series tycoon a place on the coveted Bloomberg list.

Commenting on this achievement, Kumar said, “I feel happy and honoured to be part of this coveted list. It makes me even happier that as a team, T-Series is taking rapid strides at making Indian entertainment available to the global audience. It also gives me immense pleasure and pride to be mentioned as one of the most-influential business leaders. There’s more to come, and I hope we continue to strive and achieve even greater heights in the coming years. These accolades are the result of sheer hard work and dedication, on part of the digital, music and marketing teams.”

Currently, India batsman Prithvi Shaw is serving an eight month-ban for failing a drug test. He’d be glad to know that a few athletes made successful comebacks after dope bans.
