Do you think it is easy to make it into the entertainment industry? The answer is 'NO'. It takes a lot of sacrifices for anybody to make a little place for themselves in this already star-studded industry. And if you make it by hook or crook, it is crucial to remain in a position where you will keep getting job opportunities. Otherwise, you will see your doom. Here I have gathered a list of ten such celebs who did very well on television, but then later left their television careers to do Bollywood films and sadly, couldn't succeed there.

He is still a household name. He is known as 'Neel' for the show 'Kayamath.' He later did movies namely Platform no.6,

This Kasam Se star garnered a lot of fame through her portrayal of Bani in the show. Instantly she became famous. She left all of this to go in Bollywood. Some of her movies did well, some didn't. But she couldn't prove her mark in the industry.
She was the lead in Sapna Babul Ka Bidaai. She went on to become super famous and a household name after that. She then quit her debut mid-way and then went to Bollywood. But her movie- Payback couldn't gather anything at the box office. Therefore, she has returned to her roots i.e. TV
She starred opposite
Rajeev Khandelwal in Kahiin to Hoga Woh. The show went on to become a hit and got her fame. She then left that for a Bollywood career. She did two movies in a year opposite
