The last weekend has been quite eventful for the Indian BTS ARMY. That is because we got an adorable ‘India BTS ARMY aap humare dil mein rehte hain’, in Hindi, from the biggest band in the world. Sakshma Srivastav from Zoom TV interviewed our favorite artists, and we absolutely cannot get over how candid the interview was. It was around 18 minutes in duration, and all the boys looked very happy and comfortable during the interview.
BTS has finally recognized its Indian ARMY and has appreciated our strength during these tough times of COVID-19. The boys have asked us to ‘Stay Strong!’.

Over the last few years, our world has seen a paradigm shift in the power to influence from the hands of the West to that of the East. The South Korean Superstar Boyband BTS is at the very forefront of this massive revolution. Ever since their debut in 2013, the boys have given the message of hope and love to their enormous fan base all around the world. Their major career breakthrough happened with their album The Most Beautiful Moment In Life. BTS has been absolutely unstoppable since.
Just last year, BTS released their first all-English single called ‘Dynamite’. This marked their first Billboard Hot 100 No.1 debut. Over the course of the next nine months, BTS topped the Billboard Hot 100 a total of four times. Their Savage Love Remix of Jason Derulo’s popular song was the first song with Korean lyrics to top the Billboard Hot 100. The headlining single from their album BE also made a No. 1 debut in the list. The latest BTS song to top the Billboard Hot 100 was their second all-English single Butter. In fact, Sakshma Srivastav’s interview with BTS was a part of their Butter promotions. Read on to find out more about Sakshma Srivastav.
