New Delhi: The popular YouTuber Gaurav Taneja, often known as “Flying Beast,” has finally responded to the highly anticipated query regarding his monthly income. Mr Taneja stated that he makes more money than the CEO of AirAsia, the company that fired him once, in a recent interview with Raj Shamani.
During the pandemic, Mr Taneja, who was already a well-known YouTuber, made the switch to full-time video creation. Taneja has 8.6 million subscribers, and he uploads around four to five videos on his “Flying Beast” channel per week, according to a rough multiplication. An approximate estimate of one million views for each video indicates that he makes between ₹8.5 and ₹9 lakh per month from one channel. At the same time, the exact amount varies depending on the individual video.
Apart from his main YouTube channel, “Flying Beast,” Mr Taneja also oversees two other well-liked channels, “FitMuscle TV” and “Rasbhari ke Papa.”, the first of which has 1.25 million members and the third of which has 2.09 million. Therefore, you may add another lakh or two to the monthly revenue from each of these two channels, meaning that Mr Taneja will earn an extra ₹2 lakh in income from them each month, for a total of ₹11–12 lakh.
Though the exact amounts are not made public, it has been generally believed that he has accumulated a sizeable net worth. He has earned a fortune through a variety of entrepreneurial endeavours, brand sponsorships, and a flourishing YouTube career.
At Delhi University, Mr Taneja is pursuing a law degree.
