So far this year, we have been treated to an impressive selection of Indian web series that have managed to engage and entertain their online viewers. This influx of original web shows has also brought a change of sorts from those atrocious ‘saas-bahu’ sagas and loud laughter shows that pass off for mainstream Indian TV content in the country.
But the year is not over yet and there’s still some exciting stuff coming up. Where there are several interesting and exciting web series currently in the works, we’ve rounded up four of such eagerly-awaited shows that are about to hit the web in the coming few weeks/ months.
A drama starring Indian television’s popular young stars – Barun Sobti, Surbhi Jyoti and Karan Wahi, Tanhaiyan is currently under production and is expected to release towards the end of this year.
Y-Films’ “bigger, edgier and darker” reboot of Shah Rukh Khan’s Darr (1993) has already got people super excited with a thrilling trailer. The web series will premiere on the Y-Films YouTube channel this month.
Farhan Akhtar’s IPL-based web series
Reportedly titled ‘Powerplay’ (yet to be officially confirmed) – this web series, backed by Farhan Akhtar, centres around all the behind-the-scenes action during IPL (Indian Premiere League) and stars Richa Chadha, Angad Bedi and Vivek Oberoi in key roles.

This sweet and funny mockumentary-style web series caught the fancy of viewers and industry folk alike with its superb writing and performances.
