2017 has witnessed an immense recognition of digital content in India. There’s a lot of funny and intense stuff happening and most importantly, a range of new age talk shows have made its way to win hearts of viewers by giving them a sneak peak into the lives of celebrities. These shows tend to be more open to sass laced with humour and discuss everything under the roof - from social issues to behind the scenes gossip.
