Introducing BIGO LIVE’s ‘Khatron k Khiladi’

WeChat Image_20181219114251These days, you can’t go to an action movie without seeing crazy car crashes and gigantic explosions. But who is behind these dangerous stunts you see on the big screen? A stuntman, who is very much like a professional athlete!

Live streaming is not only about restricting yourself within the four walls of your room and streaming. BIGO LIVE is introducing talent on its platform where people get to explore the outdoor world too. BIGO LIVE is redefining talent by breaking the stereotypes by just not limiting content to dance, music & entertainment, But by also focusing on outdoor trained skills.

But more than being a jack-of-all-trades, the biggest challenge for stuntmen is to constantly up their own game. “You have to maintain your A-game. Competition is fierce in the stunt community as well” Who would have thought a stuntman can also reach out to its audience by going live via a smartphone!! Here you gooooo! BIGO LIVE is opening new avenues of content for both talent seekers & talent providers.

 

WeChat Image_20181219114302.jpgMeet Mr. Sufiyan Ansari, based in Mumbai,who has joined BIGO LIVE recently and is quite happy with the love he is getting from his followers across India. He has been a stunt professional & practising since last 5 years. Not only does he perform and participates in competitions worldwide but also has been doing stunts in BOLLYWOOD industry since quite some time now. He has worked in movies like Chennai express, Jai ho, Bhavesh Joshi and serials like Crime Patrol. He comes in India’s 10 top stuntmen.

Please be noted that all these professionals are fully trained and have invested years of practise in their field. Don’t try these stunts on your own.

Join hands with BIGO LIVE and earn in Lakhs from your home only

Do you know, just by following your passion and not restricting yourself to a typical ‘9-5’ job, you can earn millions of money, that too just by simply sitting at home!! BIGO LIVE is giving alternate and innovative avenues of earning money to its users to earn huge bucks. Yes, you do not need any certification, no professional qualification, just ‘passion and talent’ to engage audience is what is needed!!!

Gone are the days when conventional professions like MBA and Engineering used to be in demand and were known for huge packages.

What we might simply disregard as a profession/hobby by simply tagging as ”Kitni kamai hojaegi isse ?” might actually turn into an art earning millions of money.

It is not the talent which is missing, but acceptance to change is! We keep telling our children, “Sharma Ji ki Beti ko dekho,itni successful hai  but restrict our own loved ones from following their dream. What an irony. Time has come to tell the world, we can earn more than what Sharma Ji ki beti is earning!! (Pun Intended)

Who would have thought that following your passion via LIVE STREAMING would someday enable earnings more than what a regular corporate professional earns. Not to forget, FAME and FANS and GLOBAL STARDOM is some of the many perks that one can get on BIGO LIVE !!

Today, as I pen down my thoughts, it takes immense pleasure to speak about  BIGO LIVE’S top three broadcasters who have made it big and are an inspiration to all of us.

1.jpgTop 1 Broadcaster – Ms Natasha Saikia (Bigo Name: RajDeadlock, Fans: 2.08Million) 28 year old from Guwahati, Assam, a lawyer by profession and is earning few lakhs on BIGO LIVE by live streaming & connecting to fans

Top 2 Broadcaster – Ms Aliza, Fans: 7.2 Million from Mumbai, just by coming on BIGO LIVE  is earning hefty amount of money, more than what she was earning in her job. You need not have a professional degree/certification but talent to entertain people and yes, this is what it takes to be a star.

Top 3 Broadcaster – Ms Manata (Bigo Name: Mahi Queen, Fans: 743K) 21 Year oldfrom Haryana, currently a student and is earning approx a Lakh every month. She is a known face not only on BIGO but also in her hometown, at such young age, she has started earning and supports her family.

BIGO LIVE, has its users from all walks of life. Some are working professionals, some are highly educated, some know the art of engaging people through Live Streaming and some have the passion to showcase their talent, this is exactly what it needs to make it big and become a star!! Today, it is them, tomorrow it can be any of us!!

So guys,  BIGO LIVE apart from LIVE STREAMING, gives you a part time job to earn money but also gives you a platform to showcase your talent globally and become an internet sensation.

Saat Samundar Paar Wali BIGO Love Story

1It is a known fact, applications these days are meant for socialising, interacting and what not. But,in the world of digital dating, there is hardly any love !!

Today, as I write this blog it takes immense pleasure to showcase the world a true BIGO- LOVE STORY

Yes, BIGO as a brand not only does it believe in connecting people, but strongly believes in connecting them for lifetime. So, here’s introducing Raj, a Punjabi munda from San Francisco and Deadlock, a Bengali lady from Guwahati, two Bigoers who met on BIGO App, who gradually fell in love.  Woohoo reminds me of a typical Karan Johar Movie!!

Here’s a glimpse of their world:

So how did you meet your lady love?

Raj:  The time I downloaded Bigo from App Store, little did I think, that I will find the WeChat Image_20180905153419woman of my dreams here. I explored one broad to another, from one person to another. It was interesting to see what people are doing, what their talent is, what their quest was, what their dreams were. Apparently, I found that BIGO as a platform can also be an entry into a whole new world to find my partner.

Tell us more about your first experience on Deadlock’s broad?

Raj: From the moment I visited Deadlock’s broad, the moment I laid my eyes on her, I saw a pretty, yet, a classy lady, sitting with poise, and interacting enthusiastically with people. A couple of minutes were enough to know that she was not new in Bigo. She knew her way around. She knew important people and welcomed them when they came to her broad with a bright, sparkly smile. She used to interact with them with such ease and grace. I thought to myself, should I contact her on chat or should I call her. Though my journey started with sharing virtual gifts to fetch her attention.

Since you both were not in the same country, how did you manage to work on your relationship?

This is digital era, and especially when we are meeting on an application like BIGO LIVE, we used to leverage its benefits to the fullest. We used to live stream, sit on each other’s broad and chat day in day out. It never felt as if we were miles apart. It may sound fancy, but had it not been BIGO LIVE, we would not be knowing each other. Distance means nothing when someone means everything and that is what BIGO stands by.

How different is BIGO App from other Live streaming Apps?

I did not actually believed in the concept of ‘Online Love’till I joined BIGO family. I still remember the time we played PK with each other, with the “10-kiss” punishment. Close friends helped me win and in private broad, amidst those close friends, we shared the first moment which still gives me a shiver down my spine, and goosebumps all over. It was then I realised, that this is no more a crush, or an infatuation. It is love. It is real.

Looking back, would I have changed anything to make it better? No, absolutely not!! I believe in fate more than I believe in God. It was fate that made me come to Bigo. It was God’s grace which made love possible between us through the Bigo app.

I would really like to thank BIGO LIVE for giving momentum to our relationship.

So, guys if you are single and and in search for true love, give BIGO LIVE a try, and you might actually get lucky as well! Haven’t installed the App yet? Install it now!
