    The YouTube battle may be quiet now, but the race continues between PewDiePie and T-Series. The two YouTube channels are coming close to achieving a major milestone of 100 million subscribers. But the Indian music label will most likely beat the Swedish YouTuber to achieve this feat.

    T-Series started and is continuing to defeat PewDiePie for the top YouTube spot. The Indian YouTube channel is now leading with over 95 million subscribers. PewDiePie is behind T-Series with a difference of 800,000 subscribers. According to the pace at how both YouTube channels are gaining subscribers, they would soon reach the 100 million mark in less than a month.

    According to social media analytics page, Social Blade, T-Series is predicted to reach 100 million subscribers as early as May 21. PewDiePie, on the other hand, will reach this spot a little late on June 2. The Swedish YouTuber has long held the YouTube crown but soon saw threat from the rising popularity of T-Series.

    The start of this YouTube battle began last year in October with both channels hovering around 67 million subscribers. It has been a crazy ride ever since. PewDiePie and T-Series' YouTube battle has so far been a mix of memes, bizarre campaigning, and even legal.

    Following a Delhi High Court order, two of PewDiePie's diss videos were removed from YouTube. T-Series argued that the diss tracks namely 'Congratulations' and 'Bitch Lasagna' contained defamatory remarks against Indians. These videos are no longer available in India.
