    I was amazed that there are more than 5 punjabi songs which have more than 100M views...one of the songs even has 360M views...none of those songs deserve even 10M let alone 100M...Even many hit hindi movie songs dont have half those views..mind you south indians listen to hindi songs but not pvt punjabi songs...then how is it that Punjabi songs are getting those millions of views?

    Because Indian Punjabi songs are not punjabi but Urdu/Hindi so all of India can understand them

    you are, otherwise you wouldn't have asked the question about Punjabi songs.

    Why bhojpuri, Haryanvi, Marathis, Gujju etc dont get this amount of likes? simply bcoz you are not obsessed with them.

    Many foreigners also like rhythmic punjabi songs, that is where these songs get additional views on youtube.

    These southies have thing for bharati Punjabi, they are very jealous and sometime reeks of an inferiority complex.

    Look how he tried to insult super duper hit songs by saying sub standard just bcoz they are Punjabi :bounce:

    ^ In fact it is the other way around, South Indian movies are immensely popular even in remotest corners of India, for example in our NE India. Can't say the same about Punjabi media, though one can hazard a guess that the Punjabi diaspora and Punjabi speaking people from other countries may well be addicted to them.

    Indian Punjabis have lost the traditional touch whilst in Pakistan Punjab people are becoming more burgerrrr its all going down the drain.Thats why these charsi songs are getting preferred
