The Digital Renaissance: A Closer Look at India’s Online Content Creators

Post Covid, the social media world underwent a significant transformation. What we, as an individual, thought had been the pinnacle of advancement shifted in a year. We had never imagined a time when even a commoner would have the opportunity to become a celebrity merely by sharing segments of their personal lives or their thoughts from their homes. But it did happen!

See if you can remember how things worked before 2022. Of course, social media platforms were always popular. However, the popularity reached a pinnacle during this period. The reason is quite simple. People spent more time at their homes due to lockdowns. The number of people with at least one social media account has skyrocketed. At the same time, new trends were introduced into content creation in a variety of ways.

Today, content design has become a substantial part of the virtual world in India, transforming how we consume and interact. But it isn’t easy to be a social media influencer since the world is continuously advancing. To stand out, one must be exceptional, have a huge fanbase, and be creative, authentic, and passionate. If you also want to become a creator, build your Indian-only fans on base and gain new subscribers.

Here, we will look closely at the leading social media influencers online to gain inspiration.

Bhuvan Bam


A super-talented creator to take the top spot is Bhuvan Bam. Beginning his career as a comedian through a YouTube channel, BB Ki Vines, Bhuvan Bam showcased his acting talent in front of the world by making his Bollywood debut in 2019 in the movie Plus Minus. Although he began as a comedian, he tried singing, acting, and songwriting.

For instance, he was a guest in two massively popular TV shows like, “Bigg Boss 15” and “The Kapil Sharma Show.” Another form of content where Bhuvan Bam frequently appears is web series. The most prominent one is “Taaza Khabar.”

As you can see, we are talking about a highly talented person. He has managed to attract countless people to his accounts throughout the years. His versatility is one of the major reasons why this is the case. However, we can all agree that his popularity has skyrocketed after he appeared in movies in his home country. His popularity is not going away soon; we are certain of that.
