He keeps posting videos of him doing weirdly funny stuff. Sometimes, even his mother joins him in the videos doing a whole lot of stuff.
From taking reviews from foreigners about Kasmir to demanding the body of Sunny Leone, this YouTuber comes up with some weirdly funny content that he portrays as desi humor.
The first video that he posted was on September 22, 2017, on his YouTube channel where he interviewed two Austrian tourists in an attempt to prove that media was lying about the safety of tourists in Kashmir. And that every tourist doesn’t feel the same way. The video has 47,891 views to date.
From there on, he went to post regular images and videos on various social media platforms.

Deepak Kalal was born on 19th October 1972 to a middle-class Marathi family from Pune. The family later moved to Los Angeles, USA. According to reports, his family went through a rough patch during the time when Deepak was in high school. For the same reason, he couldn’t pursue his graduation after he finished his board exams.
Later on, he pursued a course in hotel management from a college in Bandra, Mumbai. After he completed the course, he managed to land a job of a receptionist in one of the three-stars hotels in Mumbai itself. Though later on the social media bug caught him and he started creating funny videos. He started gaining popularity with his adult humor-filled videos when he posted a video saying,’ Modiji me aapko pappi dunga’.
According to Deepak, he has a huge fan following from Pakistan and Bangladesh. However, Indians are not yet aware of the kind of talent he has.
Biggest controversy so far
The biggest controversy so far was his wedding announcement with the very popular (loud-mouth) actress Rakhi Sawant. The wedding announcement also claimed that SRK was going to be there for the wedding in Los Angeles.
According to the invite, the wedding was planned to take place on December 31. The wedding invite read, “Together with their families, Deepak Kalal weds Rakhi Sawant. Two loving hearts are getting united and making a promise to be in love forever”.
However, it all turned out to be a hoax and several videos have appeared after the wedding never took place, that showed them posing as husband wife.
Early life and Family
Deepak belongs to a middle-class Hindu family from Pune. He spent his childhood mostly in Los Angles for which he keeps posting his childhood pictures as nostalgic memories. His father’s name is Vasant Kalal, who was an engineer working for the Municipal corporation in Mumbai before the family shifted to Los Angeles. Deepak’s mother is Lolo Kalal who is a housewife.
She is also a part of the videos that Deepak keeps up.loading on his different social media platforms. She sometimes plays a character or just plays the role of Deepak’s mother where he continues performing his nonsensical comedy scripts while she plays the accomplice.
Kalal also has an elder sister named, ‘Vrushali Kalal’ who is apparently an actress and a politician. He never got any professional training for blogging and video making but became a sensation by uploading a video that he had shot way back in 2011.
Deepak has established himself as a celebrity on various social media platforms. He even claims that he received an invitation to be a part of ‘Bigg Boss’ which he denied. After his viral videos started gaining mass attention, he started posting more and more videos while he traveled and also performed.
He is the brand ambassador of one of the Kashmir based tourist websites as he also believes that he is a travel blogger. Throughout his acting career, he has managed to attract haters and ugly comments which you can easily see at any of his videos.
However, the same led him to be one of those people whom Ranveer Singh knows about. With his tie-up with Rakhi Sawant regarding a marriage hoax, he seems to be doing pretty good in terms of income. His net worth as of today is around 1.25 crores. His career mainly relies on sponsors and Youtube and the ads through which he is able to get a regular income of around 10-15 lakhs per month.
