Comedian and musician Bhuvan Bam caused a riot in New Delhi as he launched the July 2019 cover of Rolling Stone India. The 24-year-old YouTube mega star joined Rolling Stone India’s Executive Editor Nirmika Singh and United Colors of Benetton India CEO and MD Sundeep Chugh for the event at Select Citywalk Mall. Hundreds of fans gathered to cheer Bam on, some having waited for hours and braved heavy rainfall to grab a spot in the front row.

“Everyone who has been following BBKiVines from the beginning till now, thank you so much for being there,” said Bam as soon he stepped onstage. When asked to describe what it feels like to be on the cover, the Internet icon contemplated for a moment before answering, “It’s difficult to put it in words because when I was younger and I wanted to be a musician, I used to read Rolling Stone and I used to wish I would be featured in it just once. Cut to so many years later and I’m on the cover!” Bam also opened up about his early days as a musician performing in restaurants and encouraged his fans to never give up on their dreams and believe in the power of hard work, patience and family. “Patience will do wonders in life.”

According to Chugh, United Colors Of Benetton chose to support Bam for the very same reasons. “It’s about his millennial spirit of success and his hard work,” he said, explaining that Bam’s drive and determination reminded him of the company’s founder, Luciano Benetton. Rolling Stone India‘s decision to feature Bam on the cover comes from the desire to boost more figures in the pop culture landscape in India as well as support the country’s biggest dreamers and doers. “I think it’s very important for everyone to support creators. If we don’t create an eco-system for talent and we don’t support or invest in talent, it won’t flourish.”

Bhuvan Bam swarmed by his fans for a group picture.

The day ended with Bam playing a quick rapid fire with Rolling Stone India, serenading his fans with a few quick verses from his favorite songs and posing for a massive group selfie.
