Here’s a list of the most-viewed Hindi shows and movies from the Indian streaming space during the week of November 16th, 2020 – November 22th, 2020. The numbers are all estimates based only within India.

Views (Million): 16.1
The second chapter of the Bobby Deol-starrer, directed by Prakash Jha topping this list is no surprise, because the first chapter that dropped in August this year has been
