Prajakta Koli enjoyed performing on stage and dreamt of becoming an RJ (radio jockey) since she was nine years old. After graduating from college, she took up an internship at ‘Fever 104 FM’ radio station in Mumbai. After 9 months of working as a production assistant, she bagged the opportunity of hosting a late night show. She met the actor, Hrithik Roshan, during this time and shot a series of funny videos with him. She did not think much of the videos, but the VP of ‘One Digital Entertainment’ noticed that she had a talent for digital entertainment and suggested that she should start her own YouTube channel. She made a life altering decision of quitting her job soon after and started her YouTube channel with the video ‘Types of Singles’ that was uploaded on Valentine’s Day, 2015. She did not experience immediate success, but struggled quite a bit to gain followers. But with the support of her family and the guidance of her team, she uploaded a video ’10 hilarious words Delhites use’ in June 2015, which became a viral hit and she garnered 30,000 subscribers in just 2 months. In October 2016, her channel hit the 1 million subscribers milestone.
A hardworking youngster, she actively posts on her channel thrice a week about her comical take on everyday life and situations that are very relatable to Indian society. She has collaborated with several other YouTubers like ‘Ashish Chanchalani’, ‘Superwoman’, ‘BeYouNick’, and Bollywood celebrities like Kajol, Ayushmann Khurrana, Badshah, etc. She is very conscious about the social stigmas facing society today and on the occasion of ‘World Mental Health Day’ in October 2016, she started a campaign on her social media platforms titled ‘#iPledgeToBeMe’ to address mental health issues. 2017 was a big year for her; her very relatable video ‘Types of people on family Whatsapp groups’ propelled her to YouTube stardom. She also wrote and released a rap song ‘Shameless’ that addresses her own experiences with body shaming. She was part of a YouTube web series ‘P.A. Gals’. She also attended the town hall meeting hosted by ‘The Obama Foundation’ where she met former U.S. president, Barack Obama.
She accomplished a lot in 2018, for she was the face of the online store of the retail brand ‘H&M’ and also won the ‘Viral Queen’ award at the ‘IWM Digital Awards’. She also became the Indian Ambassador of YouTube’s social initiative ‘Creators For Change’.
