Young India is ONLINE! Gone are those days when we used to stick our eyes to the stupid box, the Television. We have other boxes now, the “smart” ones.
Lately, the online world has seen a lot of talent fuming up in India and I can’t help but notice that some of them are going to be BIG BIG names of the entertainment industry in the near future. How can I say that? Because this is what happens in the rest of the world. One such example is of Tim Bergling (better known as Avicii). His story made me believe that there is a HUUUUUGE potential out there in the online world.
There are many doctors, cooks, actors, singers, techies etc who have shown their passion online and have received a lot of support from the “Young Social India”. But mostly we all have enjoyed the comedians and actors who have proven themselves to be a major stress busters in our lives. None of us mind taking a small break during work and enjoy or discuss new episodes of our favorite web series. Not only they entertain us but also raise some important social concerns from time to time.
I’m a great fan of these artists and I’m sure you are too. Let’s admire some of them. Remember these are “Promising Actors” NOT “Comedians”.

Have I forgotten any name? Please suggest with reasons to improve the list.
10 . Angira Dhar
Remember the hot and talented Shahana from Bang Baja Baraat? With banner like Yash Raj Films she had a great start. Already featured in the advertisements of Cadbury and Domino’s she has a bright acting career ahead. She successfully bagged a not so famous movie (Ek Bura Aadmi) as well.
9. Abish Mathew
Loaded with a range of emotional expressions he is quite dynamic on stage. Abish has acted in many YouTube videos but he is popularly know for his hilarious show – Son of Abish. He was offered the role of Mandal in TVF’s Pitchers, which he denied. That didn’t made any difference as he is doing increasingly well day by day with his own show. The problem is that he just want to remain a comedian only.
8. Deepak Kumar Mishra
The talent of Deepak Kumar Mishra should not go unnoticed. An actor should be versatile and he has proven this notably in Rowdies XXX and Permanent Roommates. FYI he is the director of one of the episodes of Barely speaking with Arnub and 4 episodes of Permanent Roommates.
7. Nidhi Bisht
Extremely talented and popularly known for Permanent Roommates and Tripling Tiago, she quickly brings a smile to everyone’s face. She will be appearing in Phillauri alongside Anushka Sharma and Diljit Dosanjh this year. She did an unforgettable Meenakshi Lekhika in Bollywood Aam Aadmi Party.
Two words for her – “Pure Talent”. Already shooting for Brij Mohan Amar Rahe along side Arjun Mathur she is already on the right track. Not to mention her extremely appreciated role as Tanya in Permanent Roommates. If you are a fan then you must watch her less popular The Drama of the Dagger.
4. Sumeet Vyas
A popular name now because of his long list of strong performances. Mostly known for Permanent Roommates, Tripling Tiago and Bang Baja Baraat, he has also acted in English Vinglish. He has definitely more to offer and he is not settling down anytime soon.
3. Naveen Kasturia
He is not a surprise on this list. Known for his performances in TVF Pitchers, Pure Veg and Rowdies XXX, very few people know that he has been assistant director in movies like Shanghai, LSD and Jashnn. He has proven that he can do a wide variety of roles and that is why he enjoys a great fan following.
2. Jitendra Kumar
No introduction needed for “Jeetu”. He is the beloved Munna Jazbaati for all his fans. His role of Arjun Kejriwal is still unmatched by anyone. Besides good acting he has a charm of his own (charm of a common man) which leaves a lasting impression. He has a long list of unforgettable performances and a great fan following. He is known for his work in Munna Jazbaati, TVF Pitchers, Permanent Roommates, Tech Conversations with Dad, How to train your dad, How to train your son and Bollywood Aam Aadmi Party: Arnab’s Qtiyapa. He has also acted in the movie A Wednesday.
1. Bhuvan Bam
BB is a living example that success can be achieved only by believing in yourself. He is extremely talented but most importantly he is having the right attitude. He shoots all his videos alone, plays all his characters, sings and writes all by himself. All a middle class person has is his family and friends. His friends never believed in him and he couldn’t explain his work to his parents. He took all the chances in this world and achieved a lot in just a short period of time. He is absolutely a nobody in the business of showmanship but something tells all of us that he is here to stay and achieve a lot. He is known for his BB ki Vines and TVF’s Bachelors series. It is because of his versatile acting, already established TVF, AIB and other groups have approached him. He has already made it clear that he will target Bollywood in the near future.
