1. #BiggBoss: With the season 14 finale of Bigg Boss airing in February and season 15 kicking off in October, the reality show stayed in the viewers’ minds throughout the year. The show diversified its audience in the interim period, with the debut of Bigg Boss OTT.

2. #GhumHaiKisiKeyPyaarMeiin: The Sai-Virat-Pakhi love triangle kept fans glued to their screens this year. While Aishwarya Sharma and Neil Bhatt kept the interest intact with their real-life romance, it was his on-screen chemistry with Ayesha Singh that inspired online chatter, mostly with the hashtag ‘#SaiRat’.
