Pranks in India is getting widespread attention thanks to the three “kissing prank” videos made by a 21-year-old prankster known as “Crazy Sumit.” Apparently, according to Sumit’s father Lallan Singh, the prank video was shot on girl’s consent; but this does not leave the fact that these kind of pranks are still taboo in India.

One point every YouTube viewer should note is almost all pranks are well crafted staged plays. Pranks like drive through pranks, couple’s pranks, improvisation, scare pranks, and especially picking up girl’s pranks are pretty famous among international YouTubers. But with India’s growing conservative political propaganda, and social media platforms, Indian’s love watching pranks like “Kissing Girls” and “Social Experiment” with “GONE WRONG/ GONE RIGHT” ending the perfect click-bait title.

Unlike PrankvsPrank, VitalyzdTV, Roman Atwood or FouseyTube, Indian YouTube pranksters are yet to achieve global fandom and millions of subscribers but are a household name for Indian millennials. So, here are our top ten picks for best viewed Indian YouTube channel that deals with pranking and mischievousness.

The idea is to shoot video clips in the city without the knowledge of the people. We try to test onlookers whether they attempt to change a worrisome issue or not. With this, we aim to change the laidback attitude of the citizens.”
