Instagram reels were the safety net for content creators when the TikTok ban was issued in India. Instagram, which was seen as a platform for sharing photos, has evolved into an all-in-one platform with features ranging from Instagram stories, Instagram reels, and IGTV.


Now moving onto the Instagram reels rabbit hole, Instagram reels have managed to understand the market and the need of its users in a short period. If you are a content creator, you know that putting up content simply does not cut it anymore; staying on top of trends is one of the most important ways to stay relevant, there are some pretty weird Instagram trends too we won't lie.



So let’s get into it.


1. Dil ko karaar aaya



Couples all over India where doing the dil ko karaar aaya challenge there by giving all the singles out there FOMO. Say what you will about neha kakkar she can definitely make a earworm out of a reprise.


2. Jalebi baby



Its all about the vibe something about “Tesher and  Jason derulu it’s a  world wide party” makes you want to bust a move or two. Also this song didn't just go viral in India it went global!


3. Raataan Lambiyan



Is this song on my playlist? Yes. Does it make me feel lonely? Also yes.You can feel the new love between Captain Vikram Batra and dimple in the song and this makes it a another couple favorite.


4. Urvasi



Lets be real urvasi was way ahead of its time and will forever remain a classic. The song is all about swag and being cool no wonder it made a comeback from the 90’s.


5. The Tumse mil ke dil ka Mash up



If K3G was remade today ,I personally think this song would be the background score while poo is getting ready for college. The reels of this audio are mostly glow video and rightfully so because it oozes bad bitch energy.


6. Loka to chupa ke rakhi


The desi follow up to the “I love you so much that’s why I say” challenge. The reprised version of the song was everywhere mainly made popular by the couples side of Instagram reels.


7. Bawla



We are talking about desi tadka so we had badshah in the mix. People went bananas over this song and it turned to a fan favorite with the dancer side of Instagram reels coming up amazing choreographies.


That it for now, we will keep updating the list but if we missed anything do let us know in the comments.
