Among these powerhouses, creators like Prajakta Koli a.k.a MostlySane, Kusha Kapila, Dolly Singh, and Faye D’Souza are also included!
Prajakta Koli popularly known as MostlySane is a renowned personality in the digital world. From creating comedy content to acting in films and series, she’s achieving great heights. Gotta say, she’s quickly climbing the ladders of success with her efforts and hard work. Not only that, she has been recognised globally due to being a panel member of Google.org Impact Challenge, winning Daytime Emmys for Michelle Obama’s YouTube Originals ‘Creators For Change on Girls’ Education’ and for being the United Nations ambassador twice.
Digital creator, influencer, and fashion blogger turned actor Dolly Singh made her Netflix debut with ‘Bhaag Beanie Bhaag’. With iDiva’s ‘South Delhi Girls’, she rose to fame along with Kusha Kapila. From being a writer, director, producer, and actor, she’s a pro at multitasking. She expressed to Femina, “As a collective, we are moving forward on many fronts, there is chatter around women’s rights and feminism, conversations that were long pending have been initiated.”
Writer, content creator, and fashion editor Kusha Kapila a.k.a Billi Masi is an online enigma. Apart from her sketches in ‘South Delhi Girls’, she has done several series and made her Netflix debut with Karan Johar’s ‘Ghost Stories’. Working with quite a number of celebrities and creating exceptional content, she’s a digital sensation now. To Femina, she stated “This time has served as a reality check, and also given me the reassurance that, however divided we might think we are, the sense of community prevails. And that, I think, is a win for humanity!”
