A Journey from Vloggers to Actors - YouTube Content Creators Who Turned into Actors

I am a writer and researcher of life. I write about the thing that gives benefit to the reader.

I don't know how many people dream of becoming an actor and becoming famous, I don't know how many people go to the offices of studios and producers every day with the desire to become an actor in their heart but there are very few lucky ones whose dreams come true. Are

Becoming an actor in the past was nothing less than bringing a gambling lion. Despite being talented, people's shoes slipped just to get a small role in a drama or movie. And then it took people years to get the main character by demonstrating their abilities through small characters. Therefore, those who became actors in that era seem to have conquered the fort.

But what about the internet and social media which have now made it much easier for people to showcase their talents and abilities to the world. The present age is the age of the internet and social media which is commonly called the "digital age" and whoever took advantage of this "digital age", let it be waves.

The Internet has been around in Pakistan for a long time, but the rapid spread of social media across the country during the Corona Lockdown has exposed the hidden talent in the corners of Pakistan.

The best example of this is Tik Tok. Now whether people use the world's number one social media application Facebook or not, they use Tik Tok and if they don't use it, they know about it. But today I will not talk about Tik Tok but another popular app YouTube and YouTubers.

Believe it or not, four or five years ago today, all I knew about YouTube was that you could watch movies and dramas for free here, and there were some people who kept talking in front of the camera, not knowing what to do. It turned out much later that money can be made by talking here. (Believe me, my eyes were wide open with surprise)

Well, I started watching these YouTubers much later, but these YouTubers have been in the world of youtube for the last ten, or fifteen years, and they have a good fan following. People have been watching these YouTubers for many years. Until two or three years ago, his popularity was limited to YouTube. However, during the Corona Lockdown, where ordinary people were suffering from livelihood and employment, these YouTubers (who also call themselves Vloggers) enjoyed themselves.

Due to the lockdown, people stayed at home for almost a year, and during this time, the Internet and YouTube became the best pastime for people to spend their time. While Pakistanis watched the Turkish historical drama Ertugrul Ghazi during the lockdown, they also saw a large number of YouTubers on YouTube and not only the general public but also the producers, directors, and production houses who saw these famous YouTubers (Vloggers). ), After which almost all the famous Pakistani YouTubers who have been making videos on YouTube for years are now hitting showbiz actors in the field of acting.
