We usually get to listen about many TV actors' aspiration of getting an opportunity in Bollywood. They work for the small screen but always dream of appearing on silver screen. And why not! Coz every human being deserves and desire to fly high. Especially, all the actors even if they start with a really brief role, they work hard to grab an opportunity to display their talent on large screen. And when they come across any such opportunity they make sure of making the most of it. But at times even after putting in a lot of efforts these actors fail to put an impact on the audience.
So friends, today we are here with a list of actors who started their career with the silver screen but became successful 'only' after they made their way to the small screen.
Ronit entered Bollywood with a hit film like 'Jana Tere Naam' but afterward never got a chance in a lead role for a really long time. And then Ronit tried his luck in small screen acting. And with shows like Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi, Kasauti Zindagi Kay, and Adaalat, Ronit succeeded in creating a great impact on the audience.
Aasif Sheikh is probably the most loved actor of TV in recent times. But do you know Aasif also worked in a lead role in many films? He even gave us one of the evergreen romantic song track Bin Tere Sanam during his Bollywood stint. Aasif then made his way to small screen and bagged appreciation from critics as well as the audience for his outstanding role in the show 'Yess Boss'. And currently Aasif is making the world laugh with his comic role in the hit TV show Bhabiji Ghar Par Hain.
We all know that Ashish Chaudhary was a part of the hit comedy film Dhamaal. But despite playing a great role in the film, Ashish didn't manage to get any good offers in tinsel town. Ashish is currently seen in the lead role on the show Dev, and I must say that the audience is really very impressed by him.
Nakuul made his Bollywood debut in the year 2008, with the film 'Haal-E-Dil'. Unfortunately, the film was declared as the biggest flop of the year and then Nakuul took a break from acting for a while. He then made a comeback but on the small screen this time and rose to fame with the show Pyaar Ka Dard Hai Meetha Meetha Pyaara Pyaara. He is currently seen playing Shivaay Singh Oberoi in a popular TV show Ishqbaaaz.
Rupali made her Bollywood debut with actor Govinda in the film 'Do Ankhen Barah Hath'. But she then moved to TV and became a household name after she opted for the role of Monisha in the hit comic show Sarabhai vs Sarabhai.
Son of Bollywood actor Sanjay Khan, Zayed, worked in some of the most successful Hindi films but unfortunately many of his films bombed at the box office. Ergo, he gradually made a distance from acting. But once again Zayed Khan is all set to get back to acting but this time via small screen. Yes, you read that right. He will soon be making his debut on TV with one of the most awaited TV shows named Haasil.
Shekhar Suman made his Bollywood debut with the film 'Utsav', where he was seen opposite Rekha Ji. After working as a supporting cast in various films, Shekhar shifted his focus to TV and bagged the show Dekh Bhai Dekh. And this show proved to be a turning point in his life coz the audience simply loved him in a comic role. In this way, he became a popular face among the audience of Indian TV.
