CarryMinati was the star of the show with his video titled "STOP MAKING ASSUMPTIONS | YOUTUBE VS TIK TOK: THE END" becoming the most trending video of YouTube India.

Indie rapper Emiway Bantai also made it to the list with his Firse Machayenge break all records this year, sitting comfortably with Bollywood hit songs for the year.
Top creators on YouTube in 2020
No surprises here, as the top creator was CarryMinati, who scaled quickly to 25 million subscribers, the most for any Indian YouTuber. He was following by names like Total Gaming, Techno Gamerz, and Round2Hell, as Indian gaming scene saw a big boost.
We also saw names like Technical Guruji, Ashish Chanchalani vines, and CookingShooking among others as Indians stayed at home and enjoyed their favourite content.
YouTube India had some special mentions for creators like BB Ki Vines and Samay Raina who donated stream earnings to COVID-19 charity. Tanmay Bhat, Rachna Panade, and Dr. Vivek Bindra were celebrated for imparting crucial financial knowledge at a time of economic stress.
"With almost the entire population of the country under lockdown to curb infection spread, many people leveraged YouTube to garner a range of new skills and hobbies, and upskilled out of necessity. From haircuts to workouts to crisis cooking ideas to cultivating hobbies from scratch like gardening, helping with much needed catharsis and a sense of being together, even when socially distanced," YouTube India said in a statement.
