At just 22, Elvish Yadav has completed his schooling from Amity International School. He went on to complete his B.Com from DU Hansraj College. The witty side of him comes from him being a ‘nerd’. Yup! He was quite the scholar in studies acing the 12th standard boards with a whopping 94%.
He is an only child to parents Ram Avtar and Sushma Yadav. While his father is a lecturer, his mother is a home-maker. We have seen his mother on his Instagram posts.
6. The Journey So Far
Elvish Yadav initially started off by uploading small funny videos on Facebook. These weren’t very popular and did not even get many views. His climb to fame came after his 2017 champion Trophy video on the India vs. Pakistan match went viral. It was after this that he went on to create his own YouTube channel.
7. The Inspiration
Elvish says he drew inspiration for his YouTube channel and videos from another Viner and YouTuber, Asish Chanchlani. Elvish Yadav liked watching his videos and it inspired him to make a few of his own. It started off with a few prank videos initially but these didn’t get much success. It was then that Elvish Yadav decided to put his complete focus only on funny videos.
8. The USP
What makes Elvish Yadav and his channel so popular is the Haryanvi language and accent. Almost every video is made in the Haryanvi language. The content is something which we can easily relate to. His videos too are titled around things like Desi Friend Vs City Friend, Desi Boys / City Boyz, etc. His videos get millions of views and almost every video uploaded by him becomes viral.
