Vitakridrinda is a genus of abelisaurid theropod dinosaur from the Late Cretaceous of western Pakistan. The type species is V. sulaimani.

It was discovered near Vitariki by a team of palaeontologists from the Geological Survey of Pakistan, in rocks from the Vitakri Member of the Pab Formation.

Described in 2006 by M.S. Malkani, the genus is based on partial remains including two thigh bones, a braincase, and a tooth. A partial snout was later found and assigned to the holotype, and additional vertebrae may also belong to this genus.
