Beloved Indian YouTuber Narayana Reddy, known as Grandpa and for his mega-sized outdoor cooking, has died at the age of 73. Reddy built an audience of more than 6 million subscribers on YouTube where he uploaded videos of himself and his grandchildren preparing vast meals for the local orphans and other underprivileged people living on the outskirts of Hyderabad, in southern Telangana state. His fans are extremely upset about the news and posted tributes on Twitter.
The idea for the channel “Grandpa Kitchen” came from Reddy cooking massive meals for his family when his family used to visit him during the holidays. His grandchildren quit their jobs as the channel grew and still wish to follow their grandfather’s footsteps.
