A 7-year-old boy from Coimbatore occupied the Internet with his imitation videos of news reports. From an early age, Rithu made his father awe at his ability to remember and represent any part.


During the coronavirus lockdown, Rithu spent most of his time watching news clips on his mobile phone. His father had opened a YouTube page to save videos of his son's antics, but he was surprised when his son proposed the idea of acting in a sketch.


As an experiment, the two created a short essay with Ritu as the host, Ritu as the reporter on-site, and Ritu as the civilian. The eight-minute spoof proved to be an example of Rithu's talent, especially because he can portray every character perfectly. Rithu's clear and thorough Tamil pronunciation reminded the audience of several Tamil journalists.


Rithu's video called Rithu Rocks on its channel received more than 2 billion views in the four days after it went live, so it went viral on social media.


When asked if he was satisfied with the overnight popularity, Ritu was confused because he could not understand the concept of popularity. Rithu said he is very interested in science and wants to be an astronaut in the future. Rithu's channel has more than 81,000 subscribers.


His mother Asha said that the idea was just to show off her son's talent. She was unprepared for the popularity he gained in such a short period of time and said she didn't know how to deal with it.


Jothi Raj, Rithu’s father, said that he founded a YouTube channel and collaborated with Tamada Media to produce videos, and is very proud of his son’s success.
