We’ve seen them online since we first began getting internet access. They’ve made us laugh countless times. They were influencers before the word ‘influencer’ was thrown around so casually. Then, they came on Instagram and life just got better.
We’re talking about the wonder women of the desi webspace.
Take Maanvi Gagroo, for instance. The actress began her career with Disney Channel’s Dhoom Machaao Dhoom and then went on to star in TVF’s Tripling, Made in Heaven, Four More Shots Please! She has also starred in films like Ujda Chaman and Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan.
Then there’s Mithila Palkar who rose to fame in 2016 with her viral Marathi version of the “cup song”. She played the role of Imran Khan’s sister in Katti Batti and while the film didn’t do well, she was soon seen in adverts for Maggi and Zomato. And then Little Things happened and the rest, as they say, is history.
We have to mention Sobhita Dhulipala in this article because of the viral fame she received after Made in Heaven. Unfortunately, the actress hasn’t been able to achieve the same level of acclaim following the show but here’s hoping things turn around for the actress.
Of course, there’s also Radhika Apte who is a Netflix favourite, so much so that there were memes on her Netflix connect that was super popular on social media.
