Gaurav Taneja, the popular YouTuber behind the channel “Flying Beast,” has revealed some intriguing details about his earnings in a recent interview. Taneja, who boasts a substantial subscriber base of 8.6 million on YouTube and a considerable following on various social media platforms, disclosed that he now earns more than the CEO of AirAsia, the company that once terminated his employment.
The backstory to his departure from AirAsia in 2020 adds a layer of significance to this revelation. Taneja was fired by the airline for openly raising concerns about safety violations within the company. His outspoken stance on safety issues led to his termination, a move that eventually steered him toward a full-time career in content creation.
In an interview with Raj Shamani, Taneja said, “Bhai jis company ne fire kiya than na, AirAsia ne, uske CEO se zyada kama raha hun main”.
