The channel has been breaking many records lately. Earlier, he defeated Pewdipie to become the world's no. 1 channel on YouTube. Now, T-Series; Hanuman Chalisa has written its name in gold letters. Also, during the coronavirus pandemic, people have become more inclined towards devotional music and shows to keep themselves positive. This is the reason that the views of the videos have increased rapidly in the past couple of months.

T-Series head Bhushan Kumar says, "People turn to and recite the Hanuman Chalisa during their low phase. With the COVID-19 pandemic, we are all in the midst of a challenging situation, and the Hanuman Chalisa helps us to deal with pain and hardship and gives us the courage and strength to face problems. I'm overwhelmed with the love this devotional video has received. We, at T-Series have always focused, supported and brought to audiences devotional music right from the time of the inception of the company."
