R. Madhavan

He is a veteran name in South Indian Film Industry and also his character as Farhan Qureshi in 3 Idiot shot him to nationwide fame. But it was his 2018 web series which shot him to this list! With his nerve wrenching drama thriller Breathe, the actor certainly raised the bar trifold.

His role was noteworthy, tense and up to the mark. The series is getting a second run with another season and the fans are already getting impatient with its announcement.

Arunoday Singh

The Indian thriller series has already garnered a lot of eyeballs. And with a flawless performance, the lead actor Arunoday Singh has been shot to limelight. The series produced by ALTBalaji revolves around kidnapping which creates a lot of suspense and mystery accompanied by never-ending action.

His character Rudra Srivastava is certainly one of the best of this list. The series is set in the backdrop of '70s and does a marvelous job by setting up the mood from episode 1.

Amol Parashar

Amol Parashar 17
The young actor rose to fame with his character Chitvan Sharma from the web series TVF Tripling. It's one of the most popular and the most talked-about character of Indian fiction since it's launch. Though the second season of TVF Tripling failed to impress because of its repetitive storyline, Amol Parashar is one of the jewels that the series had produced.

Vikrant Massey

He had done some noteworthy performances in TV soaps like Balika Vadhu, Baba Aiso Varr Dhoondo, Dharam Veer and Qubool Hai. He was certainly shot to fame with his role Bablu Mirzapur. He plays the role of master strategist in the series and plays it extremely well that no words can describe his performance. The actor had delivered a noteworthy performance in the internationally acclaimed film A Death in the Gunj.

The way he had gotten hold of the accent too is worth appreciating. The actor had once said in an interview that it was partially easy for him to play the role of Bablu because the character had similar traits of him. Bablu was academically inclined and was dragged to the mud of underworld due to some circumstances including him and his family.

He is not involved in many of the action scenes but becomes the backbone of his brother Guddu in the series. Mirzapur is getting a second season but Vikrant most probably won't be seen in it because his character died in the first season. Bablu has a separate fan base and we the audience are surely going to miss him.
