International Men’s Day is a good day to appreciate the men who’ve changed norms. Closer home in India, there are the men who’ve dared to think out of the box and break out in creative space. Being fearless, these actors risked it all to try their hand at a never-tried-before space and voila! it has worked wonders for them. Here’s looking at the hotties who are the face of new-age content in India in the webspace. These men are fast changing the rules of the digital space. 

Saif Ali Khan

The first mainstream superstar from Bollywood to make the shift to digital, Saif Ali Khan paved the way for other actors of his league to follow. As his show 'Sacred Games' opened to a fantastic response, it was a cue for his contemporaries to dabble in the digital space. Post 'Sacred Games' season 2, Saif has already signed his next digital show - 'Taandav', produced by Ali Abbas Zafar of 'Sultan' fame. The success of 'Sacred Games' has also made other prominent actors of Bollywood to look at a career in digital.

Ali Fazal

After hits like 'Fukrey' in his kitty and international projects like 'Furious 7' and 'Victoria and Abdul', Ali wanted to keep up with his quest of discovering new terrain. The actor can well be credited for being the first of his contemporaries to make the shift to digital with 'Bang Baaja Baarat' way back in 2015. But it was 'Mirzapur' last year that catapulted him to the next level. His smouldering looks and his menacing screen presence as Guddu Bhaiyya on the show has been a humongous hit and the actor returns with the second season of the show in 2020.

Vikrant Massey

A truly experimental actor, Massey has tried it all from digital shows to films to TV. With a knack for chasing the choicest stories, Massey’s journey has been one to look out for. He made heads turn with a fine portrayal in 'Death in the Gunj' and followed it up with 'Mirzapur' and then 'Broken', the actor has been able to break perceptions about himself. His cameo in 'Made in Heaven' had a groundbreaking impact eventually garnering some great compliments for the show.

Angad Bedi

After 'Pink', Angad Bedi had the option of sticking to films alone. Because of the critical acclaim, the film garnered and the amount of appreciation his character got, the actor was being approached by directors to do a range for roles. But Angad chose to follow his heart and topped his fantastic act in the movie with a bombastic show like 'Inside Edge'. As Arvind Vashisth is winning adulation from all quarters, Angad surely has the female fans going in a tizzy after the second season’s trailer dropped online.

Arjun Mathur

Arjun is a reminder of our short term memories. While he has been around for a long time, the actor got attention for Zoya Akhtar’s 'Made in Heaven' and since then the social media cannot have enough of him. His performance was a revelation and easily it was amongst the best of the year. Arjun plays a gay man harbouring deep insecurities and commitment issues which he addresses through the course of the show as he comes of age. Arjun was flawless in his performance and the show soon kickstarts the shoot of its second season.

Sumeet Vyas

Easily the superstar of the web universe, Sumeet Vyas did shows like 'Permanent Roommates' and 'Bang Baaja Baraat'(he was the writer of the show) much before the digital boom took over the country. Vyas, who now has ventured into films, also featured in the much popular web series 'Tripling'. The second season of the series was released earlier this year, which too garnered great response.
