Tracing Back The History Of Bhuvan Bam – Early Life And Education
Born in Vadodara, Gujarat on 22 January 1994 and brought up in Delhi, Bam is a 21st century YouTube sensation. His schooling was done from Green Fields School, New Delhi, and graduated from Shaheed Bhagat Singh College, Delhi University, with a bachelor’s degree in History.
Since childhood, he was passionate about music and loved making people laugh. He could also play the guitar (yes, he’s a guitarist too). His passion for music and singing landed him in restaurants in Delhi as a musician.
In fact, during his college days, he was quite prominent as a singer and would sing at various events.
Struggle Faced By Bhuvan Bam
Like every person struggling to enjoy success in their life, Bhuvan Bam is no exception. After being so passionate about music and singing, he also tried his luck to get into the music industry. He gave numerous auditions for various reality shows but couldn’t make it to the list. Almost 4 times this incident happened to him, and he was sent back home after standing in queues for hours. No wonder, it might have been very disheartening for him.
After facing rejection and failure, he started singing in restaurants in Delhi to earn his living. He would sing six days a week from eight in the evening till midnight. All he would get from this – only Rs.5000 per month.
Back in 2014, when Kashmir was hit by a vicious deluge, he saw a video where a reporter was mercilessly asking questions to a mother who lost her son in that severe flood. So, a thought struck Bhuvan’s mind to create a similar video in a satirizing way. He uploaded the video
on Facebook and got nice views and comments on the same. After that, he made a few more videos and got good responses from people. Then in 2015, he created a YouTube Channel, named (as we all know) BB ki Vines.
