The song has garnered the largest number of views on YouTube in 24 hours dethroning South Korean boy-band BTS.

"I am ecstatic and I am overwhelmed with the amount of love we have received in the last 24 hours", said Badshah. Paagal was created with the aim of getting Indian music across borders and making our presence felt. And my fans did everything they could to help me make my dream come true.

Within minutes of its release, the rap song started spreading like wildfire across India and the globe. "We're going BIG with this one". The video of Paagal has released under the official music label of Sony Music.Seeing an Indian song on this level is definitely a proud moment for whole India.

400,000 people have joined a Facebook event pledging to raid Area 51
The event , "Storm Area 51, They Can't Stop All of Us ", is scheduled for September 20 and is an "X-Files" fan's dream come true. The group plans to do a " Naruto Run " - arms back, head forward, and very, very fast - in a nod to the popular anime.

Badshah took the title from BTS whose song "Boy with luv" featuring Halsey previously held the record since April of this year after generating 74,600,000 views in a day. "In our collective pursuit of being on top of the charts, we know we have fought our way to the top!" Marlon Pena, the video's director, shot the video at locations in Los Angeles where characters like Batman and Fast and Dominic Toretto also made their claim to fame in Dark Knight Rises and Fast and Furious.

Badshah, who began his career with the stage name Cool Equal, had once stated that if he had not become a rapper, he may have been an IAS officer.
