Netflix's newest social experiment TV show is poised to be an entertaining one - here's who is participating in the technology-free challenge.

It would be a blanket statement to say that we all rely on our phones too much, and most people likely feel as though they wish they could be on their phones less. Some people, however, have to be on their phones quite often for their careers - namely, influencers and content creators. 

Influencers are a dime a dozen nowadays, with some social media creators making upwards of millions of dollars every year just from their social media presence. This begs the question - what would happen to an influencer if you took them away from their phone? Would they be able to withstand the heat of reality?

Netflix capitalized on this idea, turning it into a new show called Social Currency, on which eight influencers from India have to live together technology-free to see if they can create influence in the world outside of their social media presence.

This show, which originally aired on Netflix India, became available to stream in any country on June 22, so you can cash in on all of the chaos for yourself. 

The most crucial part of the series, of course, is the cast - eight influencers from India, including Ruhi Singh, Parth Samthaan, Mridul Madhok, and more. Keep reading to find out more about each member of the cast of Social Currency.
