Q1) Tell us a little bit about your journey started with being a pilot, please;

Q2) Now you’re not just a pilot and a YouTuber but also an Instagram personality and a mother. How does Ritu Rathee Taneja juggle between all the roles?

Aahhhha, if we love our job, types do not matter, & I find myself executing so many different roles. I don’t find any extra burden on me when it comes to YouTube Vlogs as Gaurav does everything. From shoot to editing them & posting them. Flying is my passion so it makes me happy & joyful, but being a manager for Gaurav means a lot to me. There are many challenges to making his schedule proper and easygoing. I am very lucky and a proud mother so this is it. Basically, I plan and schedule every task.

3) You are mostly known for your YouTube channel. What made you and your husband Gaurav Taneja start Flying Beast?

We never thought about doing it, we were a happily married couple. But Gaurav use to post videos on fitness, use to come live on Facebook and it worked pretty well. We got many suggestions to start a youtube channel. So Gaurav firstly started a channel named Fitmuscle TV where he used to make vlogs based on the scientific contents on fitness, bodybuilding. Then gradually we use to make vlogs but as the channel was centered to fitness. We had a very selective audience. This led to starting a channel named Flying beast for vlogging. Now we have also started a gaming channel (Rasbhari ke Papa) in this lock-down period.
