The nationwide lockdown that has bound us to our homes is necessary but at the same time, we can’t deny that it can get a little boring from time to time. To utilise your time and keep yourself entertained, stream these 10 Indian web series on various streaming platforms.
Here are 10 of the best Indian web series to watch during self-isolation:

Termed as one of the best Indian web shows, Kota Factory is set in the student city of Kota. Here, we follow 16-year-old Vaibhav, who is preparing for his IIT exams.

3. Sacred Games
Starring Saif Ali Khan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui, this Netflix show helped India become a global force in the web series space.
