T-Series, or Super Cassettes Industries Private Limited, is an Indian music record label and film production firm formed on July 11, 1983, by Gulshan Kumar. It is most renowned for Bollywood soundtracks and Indi-pop music. T-Series is India’s largest music record label, accounting for up to 35% of the Indian music business in 2014, followed by Sony Music India and Zee Music.  T-Series is most known as a music label, but it has also had moderate success as a film production firm.

Kumar, who started as a fruit juice vendor in Delhi, created T-Series to sell pirated Bollywood songs before expanding into fresh music production. The soundtrack for the 1988 Bollywood hit Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak, composed by Anand-Milind, written by Majrooh Sultanpuri, and starring Aamir Khan and Juhi Chawla, became one of the best-selling Indian music albums of the 1980s, selling over 8 million copies. With the release of Aashiqui (1990), written by Nadeem–Shravan, they finally became a leading music label, selling 20 million copies and becoming the best-selling Indian soundtrack record of all time. Gulshan Kumar, on the other hand, was assassinated on August 12, 1997, by the Mumbai criminal syndicate D-Company. T-Series has been led by his son Bhushan Kumar and younger brother Krishan Kumar since then.
