PewDiePie may be about to lose his crown as the most subscribed YouTube channel – and he is not happy about it.

According to SocialBlade, a statistics website that allows you to track your statistics and measure growth across multiple social media platforms, an Indian production company known as T Series is gaining in followers so quickly that it is thought they will overtake PewDiePie by the end of 2018.

T Series are reportedly Indias largest music label & movie studio who believe in bringing world close together through its music; the channel shares music videos and trailers from India and Bollywood.

Were failing! says PewDiePie in a new video asking fans to subscribe and ensure he stays at the top of the website.

We must fight back, who is this T Series channel? I am number one! he adds, before referencing KSI and Logan Pauls infamous boxing match by challenging T Series to a sabre fight like real men.

Kjellbergs net worth is reported to be $61 million but according to Business Insider his estimated net salary was $15 million in 2017.

The Wall Street Journal reported that PewDiePie earned $4 million in 2013, which he has confirmed; this was only three years into his career.
