10. This Doctor’s Ghungroo dance that impressed Hrithik Roshan himself. 

2020 would have been the absolute end of the world if the medical community hadn’t pulled up its sleeves to save humanity. With most doctors being overworked and away from family, videos of dancing doctors and patients started pouring in from around the world. Dr Anup Senapati may never have imagined that his video would become as popular as it did. The video was one of the most viral videos of 2020, and we’re glad it was. 

11. This video of a woman and her neighbors successfully stopping a four year old from getting kidnapped.

13. This video of Jyotiraditya Scindia’s politically significant slip of tongue. 

The popular politician shocked many when he defected to BJP earlier in 2020 after working for the INC for two decades. In a hilarious incident, the former minister accidentally asked people to vote for Congress instead of BJP.

14. This video of a child getting a haircut. 

Many would admit that they have had some terrible moments of doubt while getting a haircut. Well, this little kid agrees. This viral video had the child having a meltdown while getting a haircut. Well, for adults, the haircut usually comes after the meltdown. But to each his own. 

15. This video of Ananya Pandey talking about the struggles of her life.

I mean, of course, 2020 was a year of hilarious content. It had to be – after all, we started the year with this video of Ananya Pandey talking about how much she has struggled in the industry despite her father being a part of it. However, Siddhant Chaturvedi had a savage reply ready, and Ananya didn’t even know what hit her.

16. This video of Lucky Ali Singing O Sanam with a lone guitar

In one of the sweetest videos of 2020, Lucky Ali sings his song, O Sanam while playing the guitar. The video was an instant hit as people around the country found themselves nostalgic of simpler times.

17. This video that got comedian Kunal Kamra banned from IndiGo.

If anybody had a quiet time in the year 2020, it was definitely not Arnab Goswami. His year began with Kunal Kamra confronting him in this viral video. The comedian was consequently banned from IndiGo airlines.

18. This video by Indian Youtuber Gourav Vasan about an old couple struggling to meet ends.

When Youtuber Gourav Vasan uploaded the video about a tiny stall called Baba ka Dhaba owned by an old couple struggling after the lockdown, he probably did not anticipate it to blow up the way it did. Not only did it become one of the most viral Indian videos of 2020, it also resulted in thousands of people flocking to the stall and many helping out the couple in question. The whole situation, however, turned murky when the couple accused Gaurav of scamming them.
