Over the last few years, most of our country’s youth (myself included) has stopped watching Indian television altogether. Why? Because simply put: our TV content isn’t something that we relate to anymore. Naturally, a lot of us have switched to the web world to find shows that cater to our respective tastes and interests. And much to our delight, there are now a number of Indian web series actors that we love. While these stories are great, the actors featuring in them are also equally impressive. As if their acting chops aren’t enough to catch our attention, some of them also happen to be really easy on the eyes. Here’s a low-down on the web series actors we cannot get enough of.

Sumeet Vyas: "I am immune to failures. I was really young and I had gotten a role in a TV show, I even shot for them. I thought, "This is it. This is going to be big". But then they fired me, without even giving me any reason. This happened with me thrice! When it happened for the third time, I broke down completely. I was 22 back then. I wondered if I am really ugly and no one wanted to see my face. I had even thought of going back to theatre."
Mikesh from Permanent Roommates, played by Sumeet Vyas, melted our hearts with his nonchalance and lame jokes. The character isn’t perfect but the guy who’s playing it, is. We also cherished watching him as the eldest sibling on Tripling.
Jitendra Kumar‘s desi swag and raw appeal sets him apart from most of his contemporaries. Remembered best as Jeetu from Pitchers, he never ceases to deliver enjoyable performances.
They love him. I love him. Who doesn’t? He’s young, he’s fun and he’s super chill. <Insert DJ Chitvan’s Mother F**ker track in the background> A former IITian, Amol Parashar has been in the ad and theatre scene for a long time now. But it’s only after Tripling that his fan following started growing immensely. We recently saw (and loved) him in Bisht Please!
No, he’s not your regular eye candy with six-pack abs and all. But there’s something about him that makes this web series actor extremely amicable. I think it’s his eyes. Naveen Kasturia ended up inspiring many with his speech as Naveen Bansal in Pitchers and he also made us sob like babies during the break-up scene.
When I watched Little Things, I could totally imagine myself with a boyfriend like Dhruv Sehgal. He always made us go aww with his ease and simplicity in this breezy tale.
After making waves on television, the dishy Dishank Arora recently made his debut on web with ALT Balaji’s Karrle Tu Bhi Mohabbat. Everyone was super excited about the show because it marked the reunion of the iconic jodi, Ram Kapoor and Sakshi Tanwar‘. But people also loved watching this hottie on it. And why wouldn’t they? I mean, just look at him:
Harman from A.I.SHA: My Virtual Girlfriend is charming, smart and extremely good-looking. Ang along with all that, there’s also a certain level of ruggedness that he exudes. Not to mention, he’s incredibly fit and is a treat to watch on screen. We definitely want to see a lot more of Harmanjeet Singh Singha in the coming days.
The intern from Official Chukyagiri – Sunny Kaushal has somehow managed to appeal to the peeps of every age group and gender. That’s how delightful he is to watch. The youngster is soon going to be seen in a few upcoming Bollywood films too.
Well, if he was your Tinder date, I’m sure even you’d have made the first move, just like his on-screen date did on Bang Baaja Baaraat. Ali Fazal is hot and extremely talented. There’s a reason why he managed to bag a major Hollywood film after all!
This boy from Baked has made it to this list because my friend Priyam from Team MissMalini vouches for him. He’s edgy, witty and rather adorable. Manik Papneja, we’re watching you!
Do you watch any of these shows? Which Indian web series actor is your favourite?
