How TVF Became Popular On Youtube?
Arunabh Kumar, the founder of TVF, is an IIT Kharagpur Alumni. From the beginning, he was interested in the entertainment industry. To fulfill his dream, he left a high-paying job in the US to start a media production journey.
In 2007, Arunabh joined Farah Khan production house when she was producing Om Shanti Om featuring Shahrukh Khan, and Deepika Padukone. Later he left the job to start his media house TVF. Arunabh aim was to make videos for the young generation.
In 2012, he started his youtube channel with his IIT friends Amit Golani and Biswapati Sarkar. They planned to produce YouTube-oriented videos and movies.
TVF got success the first time when the channel started a show named Barely Speaking with Arnab. In this video series, Biswapati created a parody of known journalist Arnab Goswami. He welcomed high-profile guests including Shahrukh Khan and Arvind Kejriwal. The show became an instant hit and TVF caught the nerves of the audience.
Rest is history. They started making parody videos, comedy shows, series, and movies. TVF contents are very powerful and the team has amazing actors who connected with the audiences effortlessly. Gangs of Social Media, Munna Jazbati, Mera Wala songs, etc were a few of the TVF shows that attracted the young generation in the early years.
Powerful Productions of TVF
If you like to watch the latest web series, then definitely you will be aware of TVF Aspirants. A five episodes YouTube series recently released on the TVF channel has got huge praises from critics as well as the users.
It is a story of three friends who came to Rajendra Nagar to crack the IAS exam. It is not just about IAS preparations but the series also discusses the ups and downs that happen in actors’ life. From the first episode itself, the series got good reviews from all users.
Behind a 10 million subscriber base, Aspirants played a key role. The TVF team did not release the series in one go. After every episode, they requested the TVF audience to subscribe to their YouTube channel for achieving certain subscribers’ targets.
For the last or finale episode of Aspirants, the TVF team said that they will release the Aspirants Finale only when the TVF channel reaches 10 Million subscribers.
10 million was a huge number. The channel could not reach it soon. Now, Aspirants viewers started pressurizing the production team to release the finale with 10 million subscribers. TVF team accepted their fans’ request and released the finale without reaching the 10 million targets.
But, Aspirants viewers also supported the TVF channel and completed the 10 million target now.
It is not just the Aspirants series, but TVF has plenty of such shows which they produced earlier. Some of their shows including TVF Pitchers, Kota Factory, Flames, Gullak, College Romance, and Permanent Roommates are very highly rated on IMDb, the website that keeps track of the ratings and popularity of shows globally.
Panchayat, Aam Admi Family, Yeh Meri Family, etc are globally recognized shows produced by TVF. Currently, TVF has tie-ups with big OTT platforms including Netflix, Amazon Prime.
