After the release of Malayalam movie Mudhugauv, the limelight has now shifted from Gokul Suresh to Suresh Gopi’s daughter Bhagya Suresh. However, instead of directly rooting for a career in acting, Bhagya is exploring new horizons. The girl is passionate about singing and making videos for her upcoming YouTube channel. “I want to be You Tuber,” she says confidently. After rendering the cover version of the Hello—Adele video, a recent post on Bhagya’s Facebook timeline read ‘I can’t believe this video is so close to 80k views!’   

It feels dreamlike for her to see 80 thousand followers. “My friends and I worked on the Hello cover video because I had been wanting to start my own YouTube channel. There is a lot of hard work, tough days, and even more hours of feeling like a failure behind what looks like a regular music video” says Bhagya excitedly.

 

Being brought up in a celebrity family, nothing stops her from following her passion. Her elder brother Gokul is an actor, her younger sister Bhaavni is into fashion designing, and her younger brother Madhav wants to become a football player. “Our parents encourage us to do whatever our hearts want us to do,” says Bhagya who is currently pursuing her studies at University of British Columbia while figuring out her new life.

Her ultimate goal is to land a record deal, and YouTube is a just a small stepping stone. “I listen to almost all genres of music, but I mostly sing pop/country music, so my cover videos will also be of those genres. I also write songs, so there might be a few original songs on the way too,” she adds. Inspired by You Tubers like Christina Grimmie, Kurt Schneider, and Lilly Singh a.k.a. Superwoman, she says “I started singing after I came across a cover song posted by Christine Grimmie. Maybe someday, just like these people, I can be more than a You Tuber, and reach greater heights,” she concludes.
