Beginning of Heek Entertainment

His content slowly started getting viral and started getting amazing responses. Many Fintech and Neo Banks contacted him because they liked his content & wanted to sponsor videos on his channel.
Varundeep came in touch with them, started talking. He always made plans about games, matches etc. so, this time he made a plan & strategy for a brand and they liked it, when implemented it got great results and ROI. So, he thought why not to start his own company which provides Influencer marketing to brands (help them to grow) and at the same time work with creators (YouTubers) after that a step led to another.
