Want Superwoman as your life coach? She will be right here next month. Lilly Singh, arguably the biggest YouTube sensation of Indian origin, is set to embark on her second visit to the country. Her debut India tour in May 2015 was a huge success.
The 28-year-old comic will be hosted by Event Speciale as she stops by in Mumbai, Hyderabad and Delhi on April 19, 20 and 21. The visit is part of Lilly’s How To Be A Bawse tour, which aims to imbibe the humour and motivation from her debut book, How To Be A Bawse: A Guide to Conquering Life. The whirlwind tour also includes dates in the US, UK, Canada, Australia, South East Asia, Dubai, New Zealand, Trinidad and Tobago.
Francis Coelho, MD of Event Speciale, says, “The tour aspires to inspire the youth to be achievers. From the start to end, it will weave a personalised storyline.”
Lilly has 11 million subscribers on her YouTube channel, where she treats the audience to colourful parodies and incisive pieces-to-camera. Given her Punjabi roots, she draws inspiration from the Indian diaspora. She’s also a role model to women across the globe. Now, she wants to share the lessons she learned through her journey to stardom.
Lilly tells mid- day, “I am thrilled to write my first book and share, all in one place, what I have learned about achieving success and happiness. This journey has taught me to always pick myself up, not allow anything to stand in the way and that the only secret to achieving dreams is hard work.”
Lilly has earlier collaborated with Selena Gomez, Dwayne Johnson, Jimmy Fallon, Mila Kunis, Priyanka Chopra, James Franco and Seth Rogen.
