In my last post, I introduced you to an amazing website called Wattpad where anyone can write and share their ideas. It is an amazing place and downloading the Wattpad app was a pivotal decision I made for my writing career. I would highly suggest you do the same and if you are interested you can check out more about Wattpad here.
Now moving on, let’s talk about the wild imagination we all have got.
Have you ever wondered about what will happen next after a movie ends?
Have you found yourself hating the writer and thinking that the protagonist had dealt with the situation the other way?
Have you ever wondered about the second lead couple that got less screen time?
OR… have you ever wondered about meeting people you know you never would?
If the answer to any of the above questions is YES, then welcome aboard! This is the world of fanfictions where no one will judge you for thinking about things that are simply imaginary. And yes, no one will make fun of you if you cried when Iron Man died in the ENDGAME.
I cried my eyes out if you are wondering.
But today we are here to talk about the best Indian fanfictions available on Wattpad. Indians are highly active on Wattpad and their imagination is impressive. There are some wonderful pieces of writing available there and the genre of Fanfiction is not left untouched.
So let’s get started!
Coming first on our list is Manan, an undisputed winner of the ranking list. It is highly popular and once you get into this, I am sure you can’t get out. Yes, it is that good.
Manan is the name given to the couple of Kaisi hai ye Yaariyaan (How is this Friendship?). It aired on MTV India from 21 July 2014 to 31 December 2015. A third season was aired on Voot on 15 May 2018. The show talks about relationships and the emotional turbulence of teenagers. It focuses on the questions a teenager has to face in college life and how family, friendship and love is balanced.
You will have to admit that they look great together.
Coming next on our list is Swasan. Another very cute looking couple.
Swasan is a couple in the show SWARAGINI that aired on Colors India in 2015. It was based on the bittersweet relationship between two half-sisters Swara and Ragini but the core message was the acceptance of different cultures and traditions and breaking the barriers.
Sanskar Maheswari played by Varun Kapoor is a son of a rich Marwari family and Swara played by Helly Shah is raised in a Bengali family. The two families are complete opposites of each other yet they somehow fall in love. The story is very nice hence attracting a huge fanbase and I won’t ruin it for you.
So no more spoilers just go check it out.
This one doesn’t have a ship name because it is the story of three brothers and their relationships. The trio is completely different one another which makes the show spicy and interesting. And the best thing is NO SICK LOVE TRIANGLES honestly.
Ishqbaaz aired on Star Plus India from 2016 to 2019. It initially starred Nakuul Mehta, Surbhi Chandna, Kunal Jaisingh, Shrenu Parikh, Leenesh Mattoo and Mansi Srivastava. In 2018, the show took a generation leap and aired a new season titled, Ishqbaaaz: Pyaar Ki Ek Dhinchak Kahaani starring Nakuul Mehta and Niti Taylor.
The leads look so good together that you can’t miss this! The sense of humour is so good that you will be rolling off the floor.
Started as the continuation of a very famous show Yeh Rishtaan Kya Kehlata hain, the famous couple Kaira is the pair of Kartik and Naira, the son in law and the daughter of the old protagonist Akshra played by Hina Khan.
Naira is played by Shivangi Joshi and Kartik is played by Mohsin Khan. They have great chemistry that can be seen on screen and they look great together. The story starts with family issues, love and getting the Indian Parents to agree. It was a huge hit on Star Plus and it is still airing now.
Another hit show by Star Plus, Iss Pyar Ko Kya Naam Doon? aired from 2011 to 2012. The show starred Barun Sobti and Sanaya Irani as Arnab and Khushi respectively. This series is filled with cute fights and comedy which is a new take on Rude Billionaire and Small Town Girl type of stories. It is refreshing and light.
You wouldn’t want to miss this light hearted Fandom!
The couple of Shivay and Anika from Ishqbaaz is so famous that they have spotted a different place for themselves on the rank list. It is so refreshing and filled with cute fights and comedy which is a new take on Rude Billionaire and Small Town Girl type of stories.
You will be laughing your heart out I can guarantee it.
This is a couple from Sadda Haq that premiered on Channel V India on 25 November 2013. It is a really amazing story which a different take that you don’t see normally in Indian TV shows. It is a story of a girl who fights the whole world even her father to complete her studies and be independent.
Personally I would suggest you should not miss this one. It is so good and inspiring.
Omkara Singh and Gauri Kumari of Ishqbaaz have spotted a rank 8 on the best fanfiction because it is so different take on Rich boy and Poor Girl. The girl isn’t a crying mess and the boy isn’t in the mood to be a hero. Lol! You have to watch it.
Another couple of the show SWARAGINI that aired on Colors India in 2015. It was based on the bittersweet relationship between two half-sisters Swara and Ragini but the core message was the acceptance of different cultures and traditions and breaking the barriers.
This one focuses on Lakshya Maheswari and Ragini with the message that it is not the humans who play villains, we are mere puppets in the hands of fate. But… love always wins.
