TV and Bollywood have always been connected to each other. While TV gives us a more household appeal, Bollywood manages to create a larger picture of life. Nevertheless, the Indian audience enjoys watching both the genres, and both the mediums of entertainment have gained popularity with its audience. We have also seen several Television actors shifting towards films and getting a tremendous makeover. Today we bring to you our beloved top 10 TV actors who pivoted to Bollywood and turned smouldering hot with their new avatar.
The very cheerful Jay made us laugh and giggle with his anchoring and acting on television. Little did we know that Jay could be a charmer on screen too. ‘
Hate Story 2’ saw Jay in a daring avatar, and he surprised us with his romantic moves.
Vidya Balan was the petite and nerdy sister on the famous TV serial ‘Hum Paanch.’ We also saw her in a girl-next-door persona in several music videos. Clad in a saree, Vidya was the epitome of sweetness and innocence. But Vidya’s debut movie saw her taking the bold route by expressing her desires, and we love this lady even more for being a perfect combo of hotness and elegance.
Gurmeet was the favorite sanskara ‘Beta’ of Indian Television. With his possessive and caring nature, Gurmeet was the dream husband for every woman. The actor displayed passionate love in his debut movie, ‘
Khamoshiyan’. Although Gurmeet played the antagonist in the movie his presence on screen made all the difference and increased the temperature.
An ideal on-screen bahu, Shweta Tiwari made the audience cry several times with her selfless bahu avatar. She was beautiful in serials and she turned out to be a goblet of essence even in films. Shweta made heads turn in a hot pink choli when she danced for the item number ‘Achaar Dalogi.’
‘Midsummer Midnight Mumbai’ marked Television actress Sara Khan’s debut in the movies. Contrary to her small screen image, Sara delivered quite a few bold scenes in this picture. The movie failed to gather the audience till the theaters, and her bold avatar didn’t contribute much towards the film’s success.
Surveen began her journey with television opera ‘
Kahiin to Hoga’ and went on to do several serials like ‘
Kasautii Zindagii Kay’, ‘
Kaajjal’ and later became famous as a TV anchor. Surveen was praised for her svelte figure and the confidence she displayed. ‘Hate Story 2’ changed Surveen’s image, and not only did Surveen give some bold scenes, but she also made some bold career choices. Her role in ‘
Ugly’ and ‘
Parched’ bear witness to her impeccable acting talent. Her will to do something different establishes the fact that she is here to stay.
Karan Singh Grover
This blue-eyed doctor of television's most popular youth show, ‘
Dill Mill Gayye’ has a massive female fan following. Television’s Dr.
Armaan Malik was every teenage girl’s dream and his romantic scenes were a rage among his fans. Karan moved a step further with ‘
Alone’, where he didn’t only create a sizzling chemistry with
Bipasha Basu, but also married this leggy lasso.
This sweet and cute contestant of ‘
Bigg Boss’ was loved by everyone. Sana’s innocent and charming laughter made her a household name. Her role in the movie ‘Wajah Tum Hi Ho’ proved that she’s an eclectic mix of charm and passion. Sana is a rare combo, and ladies like her are really hard to find.
Sushant Singh Rajput
Pavitra Rishta’ was all about retrieving our faith in love. Fighting against all odds,
Sushant Singh melted our hearts with his performance, and we sympathized with him. Nevertheless, this deeply in love man went on to essay flirtatious characters with sheer brilliance and didn’t shy away with lip-locking scenes in ‘
Shuddh Desi Romance’.
10. Fawad Khan
This man portrayed roles of a possessive husband with magnetism, and we loved him for his dominant roles. Fawad surprised us with his steamy lip-locking scenes with
Sonam Kapoor, and his ardent avatar made us watch the movie several times.
