Honey Singh's video Brown Raang from the album International Villager has become the most popular Indian video on Youtube in 2012 with around 90 lakh hits.The rapper gained mainstream Bollywood recognition with the song Angrezi Beat from the film Cocktail, however, much before that he was quite a phenomenon on the web and was ruling night clubs too. And let's not forget the Punjabi Weddings with songs like High Heels and Lak 28 Kudi Da. Infact, his song Lak 28 Kudi Da reached No 1 in BBC Asian Download Charts in May 2011.
Youtube revealed that this year's most watched video in India has been selected not just on the basis of views, but the number of shares and searches as well since likes have also been taken into account.
YouTube in a press release said, "this year, we looked not just at views, but also shares, searches, likes and responses to identify the 10 videos that everybody was talking about in 2012. On YouTube people don't just view a popular video, they remix, share, and parody, building a fan community that extends far beyond the watch page. We took all of this into account to ensure we truly captured the watercooler moments of the year."
